Secondary partnerships

PGCE Secondary Courses

Our Secondary PGCE partnership trains secondary school teachers of Art & Design, Computer Science, Design and Technology (Food, Product Design and Textiles), Drama, English, History, Geography, Mathematics, Music, Physical Education, Religious Education and Science (Biology, Chemistry and Physics).

Our vision for PGCE Secondary is to work in partnership with schools to develop early career teachers who are dedicated to higher quality teaching and learning, invested in research-informed practice and who actively seek to be committed, creative, confident and collaborative teaching professionals.

Our ITE Curriculum complies with the ITT Core Content Framework (DfE, 2019). Each module within the Secondary ITE Curriculum ensures that associate teachers acquire research-led pedagogical and curriculum knowledge, and moreover, develop a clear insight into how to implement this knowledge as they develop their knowledge of how to teach their specialist subject with the support of expert colleagues across the BCU regional partnership.
