Develop the background subject knowledge required to help planning and teaching physics for key stage 4. It will build on your knowledge from undertaking the key stage 3 physics course.  Start your key stage 4 teaching with the tools and confidence to plan and teach effective learning for your physics classes. You will explore ways of building student understanding, taking into account misconceptions and common issues in teaching these concepts.
