Secondary partnerships

Secondary partnerships Our strength in secondary education is the close, working relationship we have with more than 200 secondary schools across the West Midlands. These close ties ensure we are able to produce the right teachers for this demanding sector.

The partnership trains secondary school teachers of Art & Design, Design and Technology (Food, Product Design and Textiles), Drama, Mathematics, Music and Science (Biology, Chemistry and Physics), English, History, Geography, Computer Science, Physical Education, and Religious Education. Partnership schools receive payments for their work with trainees.

These pages a range of documents and support materials to accompany our PGCE Secondary course. Documentation is intended to provide partners with a holistic understanding of the course and a more specific knowledge of the roles and responsibilities of tutors, mentors and trainee teachers.
