Our PGCE Secondary courses are designed for those who wish to teach within a secondary setting. The course is run within the context of the Liverpool Hope Partnership, combining university study and high-quality professional placements in schools. Throughout you will experience high quality provision and learn the latest approaches and strategies to enable you to become an outstanding Hope Teacher, fully prepared to start your new career. A particular aspect of this course is the support and opportunity it will provide as you develop your own philosophy of teaching underpinned by the 'Hope Teacher' vision and values.
Teaching is a profession that will require you to 'use your head' and engage as a highly-skilled professional. The course will similarly be intellectually and creatively demanding; while the National Curriculum indicates much of what you teach, it is you who will determine how you actually do this. You will guide and mould the developing young people in your care by focusing on their academic learning and development. Such a responsibility requires you to carefully plan your own preparation for the profession and our well-structured PGCE is designed to support you in this process of formation.
