A conceptual model

We have been thinking about the underlying nature of the PGCE course and the balance of:

  • subject knowledge in the core subjects (English, Mathematics and Science) and the foundation subjects (Art and Design, Computing, Design Technology, History, Geography, Music, Physical Education, MFL [KS2]) and Religious Education.
  • pedagogic knowlege - how these subjects are taught
  • theoretical knowlege - the underpinning conceptual and philosophical aspects of education
