Secondary Education (Computer Science with Information Communication Technology)

This subject is a key curriculum subject in all schools. The subject is constantly transforming and developing to reflect the importance of digital technology which permeates all aspects of our lives � education, work, leisure and life at home. As there is a nationally recognised shortage of teachers in this curriculum area, the employment prospects and longer term opportunities for promotion within the teaching profession are very good. This programme provides an opportunity to qualify to teach Computer Science/ICT to the 11-16 age range in secondary school. The 2nd university phase also supports the students in developing their understanding of planning, teaching and assessing the post-16 age phase.

Entry requirements

Applicants should have spent a minimum of 2 weeks in a mainstream, state secondary school in England before applying; 5 GCSE passes at grade C or above (or recognised equivalents) including English and mathematics; applicants are required to have a 2.2 Honours degree or above, with at least 50 percent computer science or closely related content.

Assessment methods

A personalised process of continuous assessment ensures that learning is appropriate and effective; assessment takes account of both programme experience and the school or setting phase and includes researching developing practice through assignment tasks; we support students in developing a rigorous evidence-based account of your educational journey.
