There is also some emphasis put on the subject pedagogy (how you teach it) in readiness for the PGCE course.

What can this course lead to?

This course enables you to build your subject knowledge in order to train to teach Secondary Science with a Chemistry specialism. There are excellent job opportunities in this subject due to their being a national shortage of teachers in this subject.

Entry requirements

You must have a confirmed place on a suitable course of Initial Teacher Training (e.g. PGCE, GTP scheme) to be eligible for a place on this course.
