Kerry is currently leading the PGCE Science routes teaching on both the Professional Studies module and Subject Pedagogy module where she specialises in biology education. Professional Studies aim to prepare trainees for the wider role of the teacher, considering aspects of the profession concerned with safeguarding and prevent; as well as looking at general aspects of the profession covering differentiation, behaviour management and assessment. These broad topics are then consider in subject sessions where trainees apply these to the science classroom and the science national curriculum.
In subject pedagogy session’s trainees look at subject knowledge and consider how to effectively teach this to children and evaluate subject specific pedagogies such as practical work, demonstrations and modelling.
