School-based training opportunities in partnership with the University of Brighton


Sciences PGCE

Trainees undertaking the Science routes (either PGCE Biology, PGCE Chemistry, PGCE Physics or PGCE Physics with Mathematics) develop a personal rationale for the inclusion of their subject specialism in the secondary curriculum and engage critically with crucial subject specific debates and key pedagogies in an informed manner. 

They consider what good teaching and learning looks like in Science and plan and teach lessons that promote learning and progress through appropriate learning activities which are both assessed and differentiated. 

Subject knowledge and pedagogy are developed throughout the programme. Time is dedicated to supporting trainees in teaching the other two science subjects outside their subject specialism. 

Furthermore, trainees develop the skills to effectively acquire new subject knowledge when it is needed. Trainees develop a high level of subject expertise in order to become strong and effective subject specialists who know and understand their subject well and can teach confidently and creatively.
