Special features of the course

  • Trainee teachers will be trained to teach either the 11-16 or 11-18 age range depending on their qualifications.
  • The Professional Studies Module, one of three modules within the course, is offered at Master's level.
  • Trainee teachers take one main subject and in some cases have the opportunity to follow a second subject if they so wish. The subjects available as a second subject are Art, Music, RE and Welsh. Alternatively trainee teachers may follow a joint main course of Outdoor Activities Education with one other subject (except PE). Candidates who choose to follow a second subject will normally have studied the subject to A-Level or equivalent. These courses, which allow trainees the opportunity to maintain an interest in a second subject, will train them to teach Key Stage 3 of the National Curriculum.
