Secondary Education (Science, Chemistry)
The science specialist pathway has a very practical focus. It enables students to teach all 3 sciences (biology, chemistry and physics) up to key stage 3 and then chemistry to GCSE and in the 6th form. The course also aims to develop professional skills to help students gain employment in a secondary school and continue with professional development. 2/3 of course time is spent working in schools. The main emphasis is on planning work for pupils, planning for good discipline/control and developing skills as a teacher. Successful completion of this course leads to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) subject to satisfactory performance in skills tests.
A 2.2 Honours degree relevant to chemistry (at least 50 per cent of the degree content needs to be relevant to chemistry). GCSE (A-C) in English language and mathematics; applicants whose 1st language is not English require IELTS 6.5.
