UCAS Code Secondary Geography (PGCE): 2X5Y
The aim of the course is to prepare you to become a confident and excellent secondary school teacher of Geography.
PGCE Geography at Yr Athrofa provides a strong understanding of the teaching and learning process across the age range of the secondary setting, including the exam groups.
This is essential for the development of a range of teaching skills such as lesson planning and preparation, questioning, explaining, assessment, preparing resources, and classroom management strategies.
We consider Geography to be an inter-connected subject within the Humanities Area of Learning and Experience but also with strong links to the cross-curricular responsibilities of literacy, numeracy and digital competence.
This an important element of the course in the context of exciting education reforms in Wales and allows you to develop your subject expertise within and beyond the discipline.
In addition, it highlights the importance of Geography in helping young people to become ambitious, creative and ethical citizens.
Excellent subject knowledge, passion for education and an ability to adapt to a professional role are essential requirements for this secondary pathway.

"I spoke to former students who were here who had nothing but praise for the course, the University and the tutors. When I came to visit, to meet the tutors and have my interview, it just reinforced it. I thought: ‘This is where I want to be, these are the people I want to work with.’"
