New degree tackles science teacher shortage

Ruth Peterson | July 10, 2019

A new Secondary Science with PE teaching course is being launched by Bradford College University Centre in a bid to tackle teacher shortages.

The one-year, full-time course, which starts in September, is designed for graduates who are looking to teach at secondary school level and is the only course of its type in Yorkshire offering the subject area combination of science and physical education.

Because of a shortage of science teachers in England, a generous bursary is available for the course. Students will take classes at the University Centre and complete placements in schools.

What do you need to apply?

In order to apply for the course, budding teachers will need to have GCSE English and Maths at grade C, or 4, or above and a relevant degree with a minimum classification of 2:2. A relevant A Level or Level 3 Science qualification would also be an advantage.

Any applicants who may not have the specific academic qualifications but have relevant work experience or otherwise show promise are invited to take a short subject knowledge enhancement course first, for which there is also a weekly bursary on offer.
