    Just wondered what it is like and what sort of things you do for it. Obviously i know about the placements but what modules etc do you do at uni? Are you actually taught biology or about teaching or both?

    I'm starting my biology degree in September but then definitely want to do a PGCE. Just wanted a bit of info about it

    You won't be taught any biology subject knowledge as they assume you already have this when accepting you on the course. You get taught teaching theories, lots about the National Curriculum, current educational developments, assessment strategies and resources/activities.
