We are committed to delivering a comprehensive and bespoke training experience and supporting the development of the next generation of teachers and school leaders.
This programme is highly supportive of the realities of the modern classroom.
Your training will be divided between time spent at UCL and teaching experience in local schools. During the placements you will gradually be introduced to teaching; spending some time observing lessons, working with small groups and individuals in the classroom, leading activities, team teaching and then building up to about 10 hours of whole class teaching per week. There is a comprehensive programme of mentoring, training and support delivered by the school and UCL.
As well as the school-based support from your subject mentor there is also a team of dedicated UCL tutors who will deliver training and fully support your school placement experience.
This course aims to prepare you to:
Become outstanding secondary school teachers
Become knowledgeable subject specialists who can support the leadership of curriculum development
Become good classroom managers
Become successful form tutors and collaborative colleagues.
