History (11-16) (AE31)
On successful completion of the course students are awarded QTS, PGCE, comprising 60 credits at Master Level 6.
Students are placed in two highly performing schools, mentored by good and outstanding teachers.
They will experience all aspects of school life which is invaluable when applying for future teaching positions.
Students will spend more than 120 days in schools on placement.
We arrange for students visit provision to increase their awareness of where children transition from and to (pre and post secondary), providing a holistic understanding of pupil’s progression.
Students will also have the opportunity to view best practice for SEN and EAL children.
Students will spend the vast majority of their time at Horizon Community College. After February half term students will spend 4 weeks in an alternative placement school.
Built around collaboration and support, the History Department at Horizon provides a fantastic environment in which to train.
Our aim is to equip our students with powerful historical knowledge whilst challenging them to grapple with history’s contradictions and controversies. To do this, we embed research-based pedagogy with the contemporary thinking of professional historians in our teaching.
We provide opportunities for students to visit historical sites in both Britain and Europe and embrace the chance to engage with providers such as the Holocaust Education Trust.
We have an excellent track record for supporting and developing Early Career Teachers, so if you have the skills, enthusiasm and resilience needed to develop the next generation of historians, we need you!
