PGCE Secondary Business Education at University of Manchester - UCAS

Course options

Course summary

PGCE Secondary (Business Education) will prepare you to teach business education across the 14 to 19 age range, including the National Curriculum, GCSE and A-level. It might also include teaching broader curriculum areas contributed to by business departments in schools, such as computing and IT, accounting and key vocational business qualifications. Completion leads to a postgraduate qualification and recommendation for qualified teacher status (QTS). University-based sessions will enable you to reflect on teaching methods. You will be given the opportunity to develop your own teaching style, to set personal targets, to demonstrate initiative and to evaluate your work in planning, teaching and assessing. We will help you to transform your subject knowledge into teaching skills and educational theory into practice. University tutors have subject expertise as successful teachers and examiners for major boards at GCSE and A-level. You will be taught by a teaching team with a nationally-recognised reputation for research, teaching and publications in business education. We also use the expertise of experienced teachers from our partnership schools to complement the teaching of University-based sessions. This includes sessions led by subject mentors, who will help you develop your subject knowledge and provide advice about teaching methods. The University-based sessions will give you creative and innovative ideas to take into the classroom.
