The Curriculum Programme

Primary PGCE

In the curriculum sessions, you will work with specialist subject tutors, in groups with other trainees who are on similar journeys to yourself.

Teaching is a very practical job, and it is important to us that this is well modelled to you as part of your Initial Teacher Education (ITE) programme. Curriculum sessions are led by subject specialists, who will draw on recent research and practical experience to develop your own pedagogical understanding of the subject as well as your subject knowledge.

You will focus on the application of subject pedagogy in the classroom, drawing on recent and current subject-specific research with your subject tutor and within subject-focused curriculum groups whilst in university. You will also expand your subject knowledge when you participate in lectures, seminars and workshops from guests and subject specialists from across our partnership.

Your curriculum tutor will follow and support your progress throughout the year, whilst at university and on placement.
