Description

Our School Direct PGCE Secondary English course offers you the opportunity to train to teach English within a Secondary School setting.

Why study Secondary English?

Applicants will be assessed on their ability to teach pupils in the 11-16 age range, but opportunities for A Level teaching are also included in the programme as appropriate.

The course covers all aspects of English, with an emphasis on practical activities for use in school. There is a strong emphasis on planning for the whole ability range to ensure that all pupils are able to make progress with a focus on the impact of literacy, EAL and SEN on Secondary English teaching and learning.

The experienced English tutors work in close partnership with trainees and the placement schools.
