Work towards teacher-training at Sheffield Hallam
Successfully completing this SKE course updates your knowledge prior to you enrolling on a one-year PGCE Secondary Science course in physics or chemistry at Sheffield Hallam or another refering university (subject to passing the two pre-entry QTS skills tests in numeracy and literacy). To be accepted onto this course, you need to have already been successful in your application for a relevant PGCE course at Sheffield Hallam University or at another provider of Science Initial Teacher Education and you may have been set successful completion of this course as a condition for entry onto a PGCE.

Learn in a variety of ways and settings
This SKE course involves studying for one year at our City Campus, right in the heart of Sheffield. We help you to develop your subject knowledge and your confidence using a range of teaching and learning strategies enhanced by practical work, field study and school visits.

Progress from Key Stages 3 to 5
We will begin by preparing you for teaching science at Key Stage 3, by enhancing your knowledge and understanding of the fundamentals of biology, chemistry and physics. We will then help you to focus on teaching your chosen science subject at Key Stages 4 and 5, by studying 2 specialist chemistry or physics modules

Develop broader skills
Throughout the year, you will also take modules covering ICT and mathematics for science teachers, and the nature of science. The science in schools and exploring science education modules, along with other initiatives, offer you opportunities to work with schools and children.
