Course summary

Why study the PGCE Physics course?

The Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) is the most widely recognised UK post graduate award and is transferable. It is accepted, across the UK and internationally, as an assurance that the candidate has achieved the high standard expected for entry to the teaching profession.

The PGCE Secondary Science course with an enhancement in Physics, leads to a professional qualification to enable you to enter the teaching profession in a secondary school as a Science teacher with a physics subject specialism. During the course you will develop subject knowledge across all three science areas, along with practical skills and an understanding of pedagogical issues related to teaching Science in the 11-16 with post 16 enhancement range. In addition, you will follow a pathway based on your degree qualification and experience that will enhance your understanding of the teaching of Physics at Key Stage 4

Your suitability for the physics pathway will be explored at interview and your bursary eligibility will depend on the subject specialism of your offer of a place.

Science with Physics

You will need to have a good honours degree with a substantial component of physics in your study. You may also consider applying for this pathway in combination with a Physics Subject Knowledge Enhancement Course. You need to demonstrate a commitment to the teaching of Physics.
