If these are subjects that you are knowledgeable and passionate about, our Secondary PE with Biology PGCE will allow you to become a highly-skilled graduate teacher with in-depth knowledge and understanding of teaching and learning, enabling you to demonstrate the highest levels of professional practice.
You will be trained to become a confident and reflective practitioner and will be able to teach contemporary methods and practices. You will learn techniques to inspire students with physical education, make it enjoyable for all, and ensure they’re equipped with the skills and understanding they’ll need for a positive approach to physical activity in the future. You will also explore, test, and develop the links between science and biology in education theory and its practice.
Curriculum workshops are a key element of your course. Dedicated teachers, PE, and Science lecturers deliver these in our specialist education classrooms and lecture theatres. This relationship, between theory and practice, alongside a variety of contrasting school experiences, ensures that you are offered a well-rounded teacher education.
We believe that we are training PE with Biology teachers to work in any school setting so this course provides you with the opportunities to understand the urban context and experience working with children from a wide range of social, economic, and cultural backgrounds.
The course is taught by experienced practitioners, all of whom have been exceptional teachers and senior managers within schools.
All aspects of the PGCE including your school experience will be assessed through our Core ITE Curriculum.
Please note that, in respect of PE with Biology, the University – in common with other providers – will make a request on a case by case basis for the allocation of a training place for this route. Numbers are in addition to the allocation that the DfE makes to us for PE.
