New programme launched to get engineers into teaching physics
UEA is one of only six providers selected by DfE.
The University of East Anglia (UEA) has been selected by the Department for Education (DfE) to run a new course aimed at getting people from an engineering or material sciences background into teaching Physics at secondary schools. The School of Education and Lifelong Learning at UEA is one of only six nationwide training providers to have been selected to offer the programme in a drive to improve the recruitment of great physics teachers.
Starting in September 2022, the programme is open to engineers who are considering a new career or undergraduates with an engineering or material sciences background. The course is designed to utilise the practical experience and knowledge that engineers have and inspire a future generation into understanding and improving the world around them.
