Subjects you can specialise in include: English, Geography, History, Mathematics, Modern Languages, Science, Society, Health and Development

Your time in schools will include:
- a period of 'school experience', performing a variety of tasks and observations, and beginning to teach your subject specialism
- a thirteen-week period of teaching practice during which you will teach up to two thirds of a conventional teaching load
- a 'school-based inquiry' - which is an opportunity to reflect upon and develop skills and insights gained during the course

At the University you will attend lectures and seminars addressing:
- the specifics of teaching your chosen 'main method' - that is, your subject specialism

- school improvement and school effectiveness

The flexible PGCE course is a part-time route which allows you to take up to 3 years to complete the course and will qualify you to teach mathematics, modern languages or science in secondary schools.If you have had prior experience of working in schools or relevant study you may be exempted from certain aspects of the course.

This is largely a web-based course so regular access to the internet is essential.

In addition, flexible route students are invited to attend the full-time PGCE course lectures and subject method sessions if they wish to do so.
