The University of Winchester has a long history in teacher education and is recognised by Ofsted as an ‘Outstanding’ provider. The University offers a stimulating and supportive learning environment that challenges and inspires trainees. Our passion is to provide a university experience that helps you reach your full potential and make a real difference to children’s lives.

Throughout the course, you develop an understanding of both the theory and practice of teaching RE using a range of learning and teaching approaches. You are supported in developing practical classroom skills both in teaching RE and in the teacher’s wider professional role.

Our programme prepares you to teach across the age range 11-16 or 11-18 and is structured around five modules - a combination of taught modules based at the University and placement modules based in schools or educational settings. Classroom practice is assessed through placements, totaling 120 days. You also have the opportunity to gain Masters level credits (up to 60 credits).

We place significant emphasis on enabling you to apply your learning to teaching in the classroom. During your teaching placements you will have the opportunity to work alongside some of the best and most inspiring teachers predominantly in Hampshire secondary schools. However, we also offer a number of placements in neighbouring counties, such as Dorset, Wiltshire, Berkshire and Surrey. If you opt for the 11-18 pathway there is an opportunity to teach in a 6th Form setting.

The programme works closely with Theology, Religion and Philosophy departments at the University, to provide subject knowledge enhancement sessions. There is an opportunity to achieve SAPERE Level 1 Philosophy for Children Foundation accreditation.

Accreditation

Accredited by the Department for Education (DfE) for the purpose of delivering initial teacher training programmes to achieve Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) or Early Years Teacher Status (EYTS).

Careers

The programme leads to a PGCE Secondary Religious Education with a recommendation for Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). Graduates go on to obtain teaching positions in various secondary schools and other school settings (such as special schools, independent schools, pupil referral units and sixth form colleges) as highly successful RE teachers and future leaders.
