The course helps you develop an understanding of research, policies and practice relating to education in general and secondary education in particular. And you'll analsye and reflect on what you learn to connect research with the classroom. We cover English, geography, history, maths, languages and science subjects. You'll learn everything the qualified teacher needs to know about planning, teaching, learning, assessing, policies and processes. There are seminars, group sessions, tutorials, individual consultations and practical activities. You'll spend 24 of the 36 weeks in schools. Assessment is continuous.
