This is an ideal course for students who want to go into teaching with a responsibility for RE and History in the primary sector, or as RE or History specialists in secondary schools and FE colleges. Whilst students focus on one subject for a secondary PGCE, the ability to offer another curriculum subject is a strength when applying for teaching posts.
The skills, competencies and knowledge you learn through this degree are also directly relevant to a wide variety of careers. Information work, librarianship, archive management, museum administration and heritage management are professions that actively employ our graduates. Similarly, the course provides the key analytical and digitally literate skills that are much sought after in the fields of local government, the civil service, the media and a wide range of business and commercial activities.
