This programme allows you to prepare for a career as a Biology teacher, working with local schools and following a programme incorporating the latest curriculum requirements for Biology to A level and Science to Key Stage 3. You will undertake a significant amount of independent study and preparation to support your course assignments and school-based work and should be prepared to work some evenings and weekends. Tutorial support is an important part of the learning process and you will receive a personalised service that will enable you to set targets and achieve your potential. Your personal tutor will support your academic and professional development.

Modules include: Professional practice; developing reflective professional practice; subject pedagogy in biology; pedagogy in practice; learning teaching and assessment; inclusion.
Course assessment methods include: Critical reflections on practice, a literature review, small scale research projects, the design and analysis of learning experiences and a portfolio of professional activities.

A final assessment of your achievement of the standards required will be based on observation of your teaching practice and the evidence base that you develop during training.
