What will I learn?

Overview

Do you love your subject, but want the breadth of teaching that primary teaching offers? Do you love working with the primary age range, but also want to develop a specialist subject which will enable you to teach in both primary and secondary schools? If so, then this may be the PGCE course for you.

The PGCE 7­-14 trains teachers to teach in both primary and secondary schools. It will train student teachers to be: Primary subject specialists who can also teach across the curriculum at a time when many primary schools are utilising subject specialists in their timetabling and teaching at Key Stage 2; Secondary subject specialists with a sound knowledge of primary practice, matching the direction in which curriculum at Key Stage 3 is travelling; Specialists who can teach across the whole age range (e.g. as required in international or independent schools); Understand and manage transition from Key Stage 2 to Key Stage 3; Flexible enough to move between phases of education.

We believe that the course offers an exciting opportunity for those who qualify to make a unique contribution to the education of children and young people. Indeed, part of the mission of the course is to enable teachers who qualify to ease the transition of pupils between these two stages, and to help policy and practice in both stages come closer together.
