PGCE Secondary Chemistry at University of Manchester - UCAS

Course options

Course summary

PGCE Secondary Science (Chemistry) will train you to become a chemistry teacher across the 11 to 16 or 11 to 18 age range. You will be trained to teach across all sciences up to KS3. The course will prepare you to teach the National Curriculum and related national strategies, GCSE and A-level. Completion leads to both a postgraduate qualification and recommendation for qualified teacher status (QTS). University-based sessions will enable you to reflect on teaching methods and engage critically with the science curriculum. Experienced teachers will work alongside PGCE tutors, plus visitors from exam boards and the Royal Society of Chemistry. Some sessions are run with the University's science departments to benefit fully from the University's resources, and with Manchester Museum and the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester.
