Course Information

All secondary trainees receive 2 hours of subject training per week, led by a highly experienced subject leader, who has a strong track-record of outstanding results in schools in the GORSE Academies Trust. You will develop and deepen your English subject knowledge. The sessions are interactive and evidence-informed where we will explore key elements of secondary English teaching. You will develop as a reflective teacher of English and will be required to explore the latest research and developments in the teaching of English whilst also practically implementing your knowledge and understanding of this research within the lessons you plan and deliver.

The English subject knowledge sessions are designed to complement the central training you receive from the GORSE SCITT. During our subject sessions, we will work towards embedding your knowledge of key pedagogical areas such as cognitive science, retention, metacognition and behaviour management but we will explore these through the lens of the practical teaching of English.
