Course description

The PGCE Secondary Business Education course consists of a variety of learning experiences designed for those wishing to train as teachers. The majority of the course focuses upon practical training in teaching and learning related skills. This practical training is underpinned by the development of participants' knowledge and understanding of education theories, ideas and concepts and by enhancing their awareness of current educational issues and developments. The Secondary course prepares graduates to teach the National Curriculum and related national strategies, GCSE, AS and A2 level. For the purposes of gaining Qualified Teacher Status, trainees focus upon the 14-19 age range. Learning takes place through a number of school and university based elements. There will be extended periods of school experience which will provide opportunities to work in a Primary setting and to teach in at least two different Secondary Schools.  A total of approximately 25 weeks during the PGCE will be spent experiencing and working in different types of School.
