You’ll develop your teaching strategies and pedagogical techniques at London Met as well as exploring the fundamentals of how children learn. These study sessions will include collaborative projects and school-based work with other trainees, as well as how to implement teaching and pupil assessment.
The Secondary Science with Chemistry course at London Metropolitan University benefits from our London location, which will widen your experience of teaching in multicultural urban environments. Through your two placements at our partnership secondary schools, you’ll help develop lesson plans and contribute to the development of pupils’ scientific skills and knowledge.
We place great emphasis on the importance of gaining feedback from your peers and colleagues during your placements. You’ll complete a weekly reflection and contribute to discussions online in order to further develop your understanding of the role of a secondary teacher.
