It develops an understanding of complex forms of humans, animals and plants a well as developing an awareness of the interaction between humanity and the world.

Throughout your training, you’ll get hands-on experience on placement and spend time on campus developing your teaching skills.
From getting the most out of your induction, to tips on teaching your first lesson, your personal tutor will be there to support you on every step of your PGCE journey. You will spend time exploring a variety of teaching methods in our laboratories.
On successful completion of study, we will issue the following award: PGCE Secondary Biology
