Employability & Careers
The PGCE aim to prepare student teachers to be highly skilled, confident, critically reflective, and innovative practitioners who are committed to life-long professional learning and the education of young people. At university, your specialist sessions will prepare you to teach your subject up to and including A level, whilst additional science-based sessions will develop your confidence in teaching wider aspects of the science curriculum. At school, you can expect to teach all aspects of science to lower year groups, with the possibility of some wider science teaching up to GCSE and sixth form experience of your specialism in at least one of your two placement schools.
Science is also recognised as a priority subject by the Welsh Government, and so all successful graduates will receive a £15,000 bursary while you train in Wales for Science and meet eligibility criteria.
