First Year undergraduates have successfully enrolled on our newest teaching route – the BA (Hons) Secondary Religious Education with QTS – a unique 3 year undergraduate route to becoming a secondary RE teacher.

A dozen eager RE students together with around 150 from other subjects  successfully enrolled over the weekend and were given a warm welcome from the Pro-Vice Chancellor for Education, Secondary Undergraduate Programme Leader Gordon Laing and Year 1 Leader Shirley Hindley.  The Freshers’ Week activities include a mix of academic and social activities before work on the modules begin.

The course includes modules on Teaching Skills, Professional Conduct and Research as well as 10 Religious Studies Modules and Teaching Practices in Each Year.  Click on the Outline above to see how it fits together.  It is hoped that all of the team will contribute to the delivery of the subject knowledge modules and Paul Smalley will lead the Course.
