Starting in September 2022, the programme is open to engineers who are considering a new career or undergraduates with an engineering or material sciences background. The course is designed to utilise the practical experience and knowledge that engineers have and inspire a future generation into understanding and improving the world around them.
Deirdre Medler, Director of Initial Teacher Education at UEA, said: "This is a fantastic opportunity to support the recruitment of great physics teachers into secondary education. Graduates will be able to share their passion for physics, along with their applied knowledge and skills, to inspire the next generation of physicists. For engineering graduates looking to make a positive impact on the lives of young people, teaching is a brilliant option.”
UEA has an excellent reputation in offering high quality academic and professional training, with trainees able to explore a range of pedagogical approaches and strategies to help support and meet the needs of pupils alongside developing their own style of teaching.
Trainees can benefit from the DfE funded bursary of up to £24,000 whilst they train. Successful completion of the course will lead to recommendation for the award of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), as well as gaining 90 credits at Master’s level.
