Stimulating young minds and watching pupils grow in confidence and achieve their full potential – that’s what secondary education is all about. It can be a challenging profession, but also one of the most rewarding.
Our PGCE Master’s programme closely interweaves school and university-based training. Over 38 weeks, you’ll spend at least 120 days (minimum 24 weeks) on school placement and 60 study days in structured learning at UEA.
Our course will provide you with the opportunity to research and evaluate the latest thinking in good teaching practice, helping you understand the optimum ways pupils learn.
You’ll discover how pupils best learn geography, and how to best support and guide them. You’ll also develop your own strategies to make learning geography a satisfying, engaging and challenging experience.
