The PGCE Religious Education at King’s is set in the heart of London and trainees benefit from access to a wide variety of places of worship and museums, including the British Museum, the British Library and the National Gallery. King’s works in close partnership with schools across London in designing, delivering and assessing our course. You will have the opportunity to work with tutors who are actively engaged in research, and you will be encouraged yourself to engage critically with educational pedagogy, policy and practice.
This is a full-time course that consists of four required modules and two blocks of teaching experience. One will be based at Prendergast school and the other will be based in another secondary schools in Lewisham. You will complete the course within ten months, studying September to June. You must take modules totalling 120 credits to meet the requirements of the qualification.
You’ll engage in education, pedagogy and professional studies sessions and curriculum workshops. These will take place in both university and school settings and will develop your expertise in general educational and professional issues, as well as subject pedagogy.
You’ll gain the skills and understanding to take up positions in schools as a teacher of your subject with the potential to contribute fully to the life of the school.
