University course intakes maybe affected by Coronavirus (COVID -19).Latest info
This course aims to develop inspirational teachers who can enthuse learners in Physics and Mathematics by setting the subject content in real world contexts and emphasising the relevance of the subject to everyday lives. You will prepare to teach Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 Physics. In addition, complementary sessions are aimed at consolidating your knowledge of Key Stage 3 Biology and Chemistry which you will teach as a component of the Secondary Science Curriculum. You will also attend
This course aims to develop inspirational teachers who can enthuse learners in Physics and Mathematics by setting the subject content in real world contexts and emphasising the relevance of the subject to everyday lives. You will prepare to teach Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 Physics. In addition, complementary sessions are aimed at consolidating your knowledge of Key Stage 3 Biology and Chemistry which you will teach as a component of the Secondary Science Curriculum. You will also attend sessions preparing you to teach Key Stage 3 Mathematics. Whilst in school you may teach up to 25% of your trainee timetable in Mathematics classes.
During your training you will focus on a variety of approaches and pedagogies used in Physics and Mathematics education, emphasising the application of theory to practice. A sequence of micro-teaching experiences will allow you to develop and share with peers, your understanding of learning and teaching strategies that support effective practice in the classroom. You will explore signature pedagogies of Science such as practical and investigative work, modelling, and problem solving. Sessions will help you deepen your understanding of the role and nature of Physics and Mathematics in the curriculum and identify your own personal philosophy of education in these subjects.
Science education provides the foundations for understanding the world, and should excite in learners a curiosity about natural phenomena. The ability to apply logical thinking and use rational explanation are key transferable skills that learners develop through their Mathematics and Science lessons. The subject pedagogy sessions will help you identify strategies to support how children learn and develop key skills and ways of thinking about the world through an application of signature pedagogies.
The subject knowledge sessions focus on common misconceptions held by Secondary school students and are "hands on" with a strong emphasis on practical and investigative teaching. In Science sessions we focus on the "Big Ideas of Science Education" as identified by the Association for Science Education, which highlights 10 principles that should underpin the Science education of all students. As well as broadening your own Science knowledge, these sessions introduce you to strategies that allow you to make your Science knowledge as accessible and interesting as possible to students.
