Teaching children in the 11-18 age range offers a fantastic opportunity to work with creative, vibrant and dynamic young people with a focus on teaching the subject you are passionate about. You can be a key influence in the development of young people. As the old adverts said – ‘no-one forgets a good teacher’

The PGCE 11-18 trains teachers to teach in both secondary schools and sixth form colleges. It will train student teachers to:

  • Learn to teach your subject across the 11-18 age range and key stages, and understand how it fits within the wider curriculum offer for this age range
  • Develop a wide range of strategies for supporting children and young people’s learning and working with others to maximise their potential
  • Develop an imaginative approach to teaching that brings out the creative potential of you and your pupils
  • Understand the wider importance of education in society and the key role that education 11-18 plays within this
