In the modern world, science is essential for everyone. Physics is key to our understanding of the structure and dynamics of the universe.
At UWTSD you will be based in the IQ building where you will learn alongside your fellow students in the field of Science and Technology. This course will prepare you to teach science to Y7 and Y8 pupils and to specialise in teaching Physics up to A-Level.
Delivered in the Environmental Lab in the IQ Building, our secondary physics programme supports you in using your passion and expertise for physics to inspire young people and complement their natural curiosity.
If you are trained as an engineer (for example mechanical, electrical and others) you can use your knowledge and practical experiences to inspire the next generation of engineers and help address the UK’s growing need for engineering talent. A child’s first insight into engineering could well be in the physics classroom and that is where talented teachers such as YOU can make a difference! If you prefer more practical opportunities, you could look at our course, PGCE Secondary Design and Technology with QTS.
For Maths graduates who want an alternative to teaching Maths why not consider teaching Physics? If you like being hands-on, we promise you’ll have so much fun teaching a practical subject. You will also be working alongside computer scientists in the Science and Technology area of learning.
Physics teaching is diverse and uses every skill you have to give. Schools need more specialist physics teachers than ever before therefore employability in your chosen location and promotional prospects are excellent.
