Goldsmiths, University of London
Secondary Education (English)
This programme gives students a thorough grounding in all aspects of the national curriculum for English, including post-16 teaching. It offers a balance of theory and practice, including the opportunity to understand the historical forces and ideas that have shaped today�s curriculum.
An undergraduate or postgraduate degree at least 50 per cent of content should be in the proposed teaching subject; GCSE grade C or above in English language and mathematics; an enhanced disclosure certificate from the Government�s Criminal Records Bureau (CRB); an occupational health questionnaire.
Teaching practice is in 2 main blocks, each in a separate school. During the school-based weeks of the autumn term, there are opportunities to observe teachers, to ask questions, and to speak with a school-based mentor, either the head of the English department in the school or another experienced member of staff. Much of the spring and summer terms is devoted to school-based work.
Methods of assessment in English focus primarily on individual written work, but also take into account group tasks, presentations and video work. Formal assignments explore aspects of: Planning and selection of resources, assessment practices, and current debates about English as an academic/school subject.
