Course summary

Entirely in keeping with the new curriculum and its four purposes, our RE pathway seeks to explore the complex issues which surround the teaching and learning of religious education. In a world full of challenging events, ethical dilemmas and community tensions, we will support you in developing the skills needed to engage and inspire young people in these debates.

You will learn how to apply a variety of pedagogical approaches to a variety of teaching and learning contexts, thus providing an inclusive learning environment for all.

The new Areas of Learning and Experience underpin the pathway, and you will have significant opportunities to work in collaboration with students from other subject areas, particularly those under the umbrella of the Humanities.

This will allow you to develop a collegial and collaborative approach to teaching and learning.

The secondary RE programme prepares you to teach across the secondary age-range, including the GSCE and A-level examination groups.

Course Overview

The PGCE is a full-time academic and professional programme, broadly comprising university-based provision of approximately 12 weeks, and at least 24 weeks based in school.

Assessment

The programme offers 60 credits at Masters level and 60 credits at Graduate Level. These are awarded on successful completion of module assessments which include:

  • Case studies
  • Portfolios
  • Video presentation
  • Research Project

All assessments are closely linked to practice and are designed to offer you the opportunity to develop teaching and learning that has a positive impact on children and young people.
