About

The Secondary Education (Science with Biology) with Recommendation for QTS programme from Brunel University London aims to facilitate your transformation into a well-educated, confident and motivated science educator, helping all pupils become scientifically literate citizens.

Overview

Along with English and mathematics, science is one of the three core subjects of the national curriculum and since all pupils have to study a broad, balanced curriculum in science there is a demand for well-qualified and skilled biology teachers.  As a secondary school biology teacher you will have to build upon and sustain pupil’s interest for the subject as they journey through the biology national curriculum.

The need for qualified, enthusiastic teachers with an understanding of the demands society places on young people has never been greater. The opportunity to educate children and young people, and learn from them in return, is immensely rewarding.

Schools are seeking teachers with high levels of pedagogical competence and skill, as well as advanced subject knowledge for teaching as well as knowledge of the theories, policies and systems relevant to education.

Careers and your future

A Brunel University London Secondary Education (Science with Biology) with Recommendation for QTS is a recognised symbol of high quality Initial Teacher Education (ITE). This is demonstrated by Brunel’s outstanding employment rates over time and feedback from Brunel alumni student teachers, our partnership schools and Ofsted inspectors.

Brunel PGCE graduates have gone on to work in our partnership schools, and many in schools where they undertook a placement experience. This allows the department to retain links with former students and often they become school-based mentors for Brunel PGCE students. The department also has a network of alumni in positions of responsibility in schools across the country.

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • The PGCE in Secondary Education (Science with Biology) will equip you with a critical understanding of the issues that impact upon the education of children and young people as well as theory and practice in teaching, learning and assessment as you learn to specialise in the teaching of Biology.
  • The course is structured to balance the taught elements with independent professional learning activities (PLAs) of which your placements will be a key part in relation to the Teachers’ Standards for Qualified Teacher Status.
