You can access the PGCE programme Welcome Pages here...

If you scroll down to 'Information about your subject specialism'

you'll see there are four tasks to complete:

Pre course introductory reading

The pre-course introductory reading task is one all PGCE students do, regardless of subject specialism. You're asked to read the two chapters provided and complete a piece of writing entitled 'How can the main aims of the secondary curriculum be met through the teaching and learning in your subject?'

This writing won't be assessed (you can't fail the task!) However you will receive feedback and hopefully you will find it a useful 'way in' to writing

The introduction to the task invites you to refer to a third, subject-specific reading: Your Subject tutor will also suggest one relevant subject-based reading that might be useful for you to use for this task. This reading will help you to make useful connections with the pre course reading and task, and your first assignment, later on.

For this you should read Section One of the Hickman book (left)

Subject audit

If you didn't complete this before your interview you should find it useful to read - no need to submit.
