  • be able to plan and prepare for lessons and set pupils’ learning objectives
  • have strong classroom management skills, such as knowing how to promote good behaviour and minimise disruption
  • know how to teach pupils with special educational needs and disabilities
  • be able to assess pupils effectively

The course we offer is 1 year, full time, with a PGCE awarded.
