Unashamedly ambitious the Athrofa English PGCE pathway prepares you to teach across the secondary age range – from the Area of Learning and Experience for Languages, Literacy and Communication to the exam groups for GSCE and A level qualifications

The central aim of the course is to educate confident, expert, competent and professional teachers of English with a secure knowledge of research-based effective approaches to teaching, and the enthusiasm and skill to help all pupils understand, enjoy, and improve their skills and knowledge in English.

Potential candidates will be ambitious and committed, have high expectations, be versatile and resilient, able to expertly engage with their subject, language and literature.

The Athrofa Professional Learning Partnership with its partner schools will support you in becoming a critically reflective practitioner whose practice revolves around a safe, vibrant learning environment with challenging, informed high expectations.

We strive to produce teachers who are resilient lifelong learners, with a passion to do the same for their pupils.
