    Geography 1116

    Geography is a key subject of the secondary curriculum and teaching geography is an exciting, rewarding and challenging profession. Geography is a dynamic and relevant subject for all children to study and this course aims to equip you with the skills to make the teaching of it as interesting, fun and engaging as possible.

    In this one-year course, your main concern will be with the development of your professional competence as a teacher of geography. In order to teach geography successfully, you will need to focus not only on the teaching of the subject itself, but also on developing an understanding of educational issues pertaining to teaching and learning, classroom interaction, the school curriculum and the school and society.

    In this one-year course, your main concern will be with the development of your professional competence as a teacher of geography. In order to teach geography successfully, you will need to focus not only on the teaching of the subject itself, but also on developing an understanding of educational issues pertaining to teaching and learning, classroom interaction, the school curriculum and the school and society.

    As well as becoming a competent classroom practitioner, you will need to be able to make informed decisions and to recognise the need for further personal and professional development, particularly where your subject knowledge is concerned.

    At the end of this course you will receive a PGCE as well as the award of QTS.

    There is also an option to study on this course at Masters level and accumulate 60 masters level credits, which can then be put towards a full Masters qualification when you are teaching.

    We are currently looking at providing new post-graduate courses (subject to validation) aimed at NQTs or teachers in their first few years of teaching which will allow you to complete your full Masters degree and have a head start on PCGE graduates from other universities.
