Goldsmiths' operating principles for 2022-23 have not yet been finalised but should changes be required to teaching in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, we will publish these as early as possible for prospective students wishing to start their programme in September 2022.
This teacher training programme offers a balance of theory and practice to give you a thorough grounding in all aspects of the National Curriculum for English, including post-16 teaching.
Why Study PGCE (Secondary) English at Goldsmiths?
- As well as learning how to plan and evaluate lessons and assess your students, you'll also develop knowledge specific to english teaching. This includes learning a wide range of teaching approaches that you can draw on - including drama, voice and media studies.
- You'll look at how to meet different needs and interests in mixed experience classrooms including working with bilingual pupils, and those with special educational needs.
- You'll have practical workshop sessions and seminars with trained professionals, and you'll undertake placements in schools.
It is also possible to study this course via our School Direct programme. Please visit our School Direct page to see which schools offer this subject.
