Acquisition of Science Subject Knowledge and Pedagogy in Initial Teacher Training
Published by the Wellcome Trust in October 201, this report looks at how one-year postgraduate Initial Teacher Training (ITT) courses in England and Wales support trainees’ acquisition of subject knowledge and topic specific pedagogy across the sciences.
The study, which was the first of its kind to look into the acquisition of subject knowledge and pedagogy in secondary ITT, presents its findings in four main sections:
*The qualifications of trainees and Higher Education Institution (HEI) course intentions
*The extent to which subject knowledge and topic-specific pedagogy are addressed on one-year science ITT courses
*The ways in which trainees acquire and use subject knowledge and topic specific pedagogy
*The extent to which the subject specific course elements meet trainees’perceived needs for the Newly Qualified Teacher (NQT) year.
