About the course
This largely placement-based course gives you the necessary knowledge and experience you need to teach the Secondary English curriculum in creative and imaginative ways. It is designed to give you the subject-specific knowledge, secure understanding of educational theory and practical teaching skills to lead learning; initiate change; and thrive as a teacher in a challenging and rewarding profession.
To deliver the curriculum, you should be familiar with classic works as well as a wide range of modern fiction, non-fiction, multimodal texts and poetry. Language and literature are rapidly changing to accommodate the postmodern broadband age and you are expected to have knowledge of new, emerging genres and other virtual areas.
When you successfully complete the course, you achieve Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), enabling you to work in a school as a teacher. As it also develops your ability to be an evidence-informed teacher, you are well placed to pursue further awards such as Chartered Teacher Status.
