The Secondary Teaching Pathway is ideal if you intend to qualify as a Secondary school teacher (11-16 with post 16 enhancement). This route into teaching is very flexible – you won’t have to take your interview for a place on the PGCE if you change your mind in three years time. Education (Secondary Teaching Pathway) has to be studied as part of a combined course. You'll study Education (Secondary Teaching Pathway) alongside your specialist subject. This course covers all the core aspects of biology, while allowing you to develop expertise in specialist areas. Biology has a strong practical element and you’ll have plenty of opportunities to study plants and animals in the wild as well as in our laboratories. There is also a strong human biology thread in our degree programme. As well as scheduled practical sessions, day trips and residential field trips provide the opportunity to study topics in greater depth.
