About PGCE Religious Education
The course will enable you to build excellent subject knowledge and give you a deep understanding of the pedagogies needed to become an excellent subject practitioner. Through research and enquiry, you will explore current debates in RE and RVE to support you in working with our Cardiff Partnership schools. The secondary RE programme will give you the confidence to teach religious and non-religious worldviews and contemporary issues and topics across the 11-18 age range, including GCSE and A level. You will have the opportunity to work closely with different Humanities subjects and Areas of Learning and Experience. Additionally, you will be given opportunities to work collaboratively with primary PGCE student teachers on curriculum design with a focus on progression for all learners.
You will be able to share your enthusiasm for the subject and use creative and engaging activities to inspire the next generation into a range of careers where RE and RVE is highly valued. In a world full of ethical and moral challenges, you will enable learners to develop an understanding of religion, belief, culture, community and cynefin which can help to nurture a sense of place and belonging.
