Hi all,

Just wondering if anyone knows of any undergraduate degree's that offer a qts integrated? As I want to become a computing teacher but don't want to spend an extra year at uni studying a PGCE.

So far I have:

https://www.wlv.ac.uk/courses/bsc-ho...education-qts/

https://www.port.ac.uk/study/courses...mputer-science

I thought University of Hull offered this too but cannot find it on their page. So maybe the course has been removed?

I am from West Yorkshire near Leeds. So the closer the better.

Thanks for the recommendation TJPBrewer

Hi mrITguy

Our BSc (Hons) Computing with QTS is a fast-track route into teaching, taking just three years to be a fully qualified teacher.

The course combines a thorough understanding of computer science with education theory and practice.

You'll study software engineering and programming languages, computer systems, computer architecture and data structures. Through regular placements in schools, you'll graduate ready to take up a teaching career in computer science at secondary or college level.

You can also choose to specialise in another STEM subject, giving you the unique ability to teach across two STEM disciplines.
This degree awards Qualified Teacher Status, which means that when you graduate you’ll be qualified to teach in any state-maintained school in England and Wales.

We have an online Open Day event coming up in August where you can chat with the academics, support staff and current students if you would like to find out more. I can also look into putting you in touch with the academics sooner if you would like to chat with them direct?


Let me know if you need any more information

Hi.

Just wondering, if I took that extra STEM subject too would that increase the course length?

Thank you.

No, you would choose a 2nd discipline pretty early on in the course so the course length would remain the same

That's perfect, thank you!

One last quick one. I saw online that it's assessed through essays, projects and observed placements. Does that mean no exams? Undoubtably the best exams in Secondary were the coursework ones

Best thing I've heard all week.

Is the overall qualification going to be more like 'Computing with QTS (also with *added STEM discipline*) or more like 'Computing and *STEM discipline* with QTS?

Great! Is there a option not to take a second STEM subject? If so what happens, do the students study more computer science modules?
