Student teachers within the Citizenship, Geography and History subject specialisms are taught as a PGCE Humanities group. You wll have specialist inputs on your chosen subject and also gain experience of issues in planning and teaching cross-curricular work within the Humanities. Your two school placements are in your specialist subjects.
Citizenship has been a compulsory element of the National curriculum since 2002 in recognition of its invaluable contribution to young people's education. Recent debate over content, aims and methodology by education specialists has lead to the rapid growth of the subject and consequently, a high demand for Citizenship Education Specialists.
You will learn from some of the best practitioners in the field, and with their support, you will learn how to become an effective practitioner yourself. The programme will cover all areas of the National Curriculum for Citizenship, and will also address national testing, extra curricular learning opportunities and how to enhance your own professional development.
PCGE Secondary Citizenship aims to:
- support students to extend and deepen their subject knowledge of Citizenship
- expose students to a wide range of strategies for teaching and learning and assessment in Citizenship
- support students in exploring the use of ICT in Citizenship teaching and learning, including Internet resources and services and Blackboard as integral parts of the course
- support students to individualise their learning on the course as competent and committed professionals
PGCE Secondary Citizenship is organised into these three areas:
Continuous assessment is used throughout the course and there are no examinations.
