Course summary

About the course

If you’ve got an undergraduate degree and are striving to become a secondary school Chemistry teacher, then studying our Secondary Science with Chemistry PGCE with QTS will help you on your way. You’ll develop your subject specialist knowledge alongside hands-on classroom experience.

Why Secondary Science with Chemistry PGCE with QTS?

  • The course is designed to emphasise practical engagement with the curriculum whilst developing your understanding of the theories which underpin the best models of practice. This means you'll be equipped with the knowledge and practical skills you'll need in the constantly changing world of secondary education.
  • A significant amount of your learning will take place whilst on placement within one of our partnership schools. You’ll benefit from being able to observe experienced teachers, gain practical hands-on experience and mentoring to help you develop into an outstanding and successful teacher.
  • Chemistry is an exciting subject to teach and there are opportunities for well qualified chemistry teachers. It is a National Curriculum core subject and is taught throughout schools. The course will enable you to explore what it means to teach chemistry and develop ways in which you teach it. You will examine the best practice of chemistry teaching and use a range of teaching strategies to challenge and inform your students.
  • Upon successful completion of the course we’ll recommend Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), enabling you to start your first teaching post within a secondary school.

Placements

A key element of your studies and learning takes place whilst you’re on placement. You’ll undertake a number of compulsory placements as part of your programme, in fact you’ll spend around 120 days in at least two partner schools.

You’ll experience the wider role of a teacher in secondary education. You’ll have the support of both subject and professional mentors in schools who will help you to develop your practice through observations, planning meetings, weekly tutorials, reports and in-depth lesson evaluations. Your university tutor will visit you in school to guide, support and evaluate your progress. Our partnership schools are situated across the local area including Kirklees, Calderdale, Wakefield, Leeds, Bradford, and we’ll endeavour to place you in a convenient location.

Your career

We know you’re coming to university to undertake your course, meet new people and broaden your horizons. However, we also help you to focus on life after you have graduated to ensure that your hard work pays off and you achieve your ambition.

So while you’re here (and after you graduate) the Careers and Employability Service offer professional help, support and guidance.
