Programme structure

Our PGCE Secondary course will equip you with the necessary skills and knowledge to teach history across the secondary age range, including some opportunities to know more about 16-19 teaching. Candidates should note that the majority of schools in the Southampton partnership serve 11-6 cohorts and access to post-16 experience is limited to guest speakers, independent inquiries and observations in the main. Our PGCE trainees have successfully secured posts teaching across the 11-19 age range.

There is a strong working relationship between the university and partner schools to develop your ability to teach history effectively. This involves not just understanding how to teach but why; the emphasis on the latter explores both why the subject matters as well as exploring the benefits of a range of teaching approaches. The course is very practical but underpinned by an emphasis on developing your own theoretical and philosophical position towards history teaching. It is a challenging course but highly effective. The course enjoys a very strong local and national reputation and has high completion and employment rates.
