Postgraduate Secondary Physical Education - Postgrado en Educación Secundaria (Educación Física)
Excellent teachers make a difference to the lives and futures of the people they teach. Developed in partnership with schools, this Ofsted Outstanding rated programme will support you to become an innovative and inspiring RE teacher.
You’ll need to be well suited to the teaching profession both personally and academically.
Examine the place of RE in the school curriculum, the legal position of RE, world religions, and the various approaches to RE in the classroom.
You’ll explore current debates in the teaching of RE and examine various teaching methods and approaches used to deliver RE. This includes the National Curriculum and the Secondary National Strategy. This strand of the programme also addresses teaching and learning with relation to the ‘Every Child Matters’ agenda for education. Throughout, the aim is to bring together theory and practice.
Personal and social education are included to facilitate an exploration of the moral standpoints of a variety of worldviews, both religious and secular, and generates an understanding of the relationship between views on personal and social issues and cultural perspectives, including your own.
You’ll have an opportunity to learn more about the teaching of other Humanities subjects as preparation for working in a Humanities context and also to prepare you for working with a range of subject disciplines to deliver cross-curricular dimensions.
The programme will enable you to meet the QTS Standards in respect of pupils aged 11-16. There are also opportunities to undertake university based education for planning, teaching and assessing the post-16 age range.
University-based sessions will blend both practice and theory to provide a firm foundation for the development of your teaching skills. Visiting speakers and visits to faith communities support the curriculum and are intended to enhance both your subject and pedagogic knowledge and skills.
Your work in school will both inform and be informed by your work in University. In both areas you’ll need to reflect upon your learning. Over the course of the year we hope you’ll develop your own philosophy about both the subject and about how to teach it to enable students in schools to be excited by their learning and thinking about religion.
