Secondary Education (Balanced Science: Chemistry)

This course, based at the Hull Campus, is intended for those wishing to teach in the 11-18 age range and is delivered by the University together with approximately 70 partnership schools; these schools are based in the East Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire region mainly, but we also work with schools as far apart as North and West Yorkshire, as well as schools deep into the Lincolnshire countryside; trainees spend 1/3 of their course studying at the University with dedicated subject tutors, and the remainder is spent on 2 teaching practices in 2 different schools; in school every trainee has the benefit of both a professional tutor, and a subject specific, personal mentor to guide them through their teaching practice; the region allows trainees to gain experience in a wide variety of school types: urban or rural, large or small, comprehensive or selective, denominational, country, grant-maintained or independent; successful completion of this course leads to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), subject to satisfactory performance in skills tests.
