Secondary Teaching Taster courses

Posted on 22 October 2010

Three-day Secondary Teaching Taster Courses will be held at Keele University: 16-18 November 2010
The courses are designed for those people who are considering teaching as a possible career and/or are close to making a decision to apply for Initial Teacher Education - whether for a PGCE at a University/College of Higher Education/SCITT or through the Graduate Teacher Programme (Employment-based route), offered by a Designated Recommending Body.

The Courses are intended to enable participants to made an appropriately informed decision as to whether teaching is, or is not, a career that they wish to pursue.

Structure of Course
• Day One Keele-based
• Day Two Placement in a Keele Partnership School
• Day Three Keele-based

The Courses are predominantly for Secondary Postgraduate Teaching in Shortage/Priority subjects - Information and Communication Technology, Mathematics, Modern Foreign Languages and Science. We will also consider applications in the other subjects that we offer at Keele.  These are English, Geography and History.
In addition, the Courses are intended to encourage participants from Minority Ethnic Groups and applications are particularly welcome from members of these communities.
Cost per participant: £25.00
