Pre-Trained Teacher: An important feature of this programme is the field work component carried out in local secondary schools that enables pre-trained teachers to get initial teaching experience by first working in pairs in their second year, and then individually by full immersion in their final year for 64 and 106 weeks respectively. For the field work components they are required to plan and deliver aspects of secondary schools’ science curricula under the supervision of their UWI supervisors and the cooperating teachers in the schools assigned. Efforts are made to expose them to teaching at both lower and upper secondary levels in more than one type of secondary institution in the two years. During their final year students complete a lesson study where they plan, implement and evaluate a specific lesson they have taught while on field work. Trained Teachers: Trained teachers take the same courses pursued by the pre-trained teachers in their second and third years but the focus is on professional development. As such, a strong emphasis is placed on reflective practice and on identifying areas of their teaching that need to be strengthened. The trained teachers get an opportunity to revisit teaching through their field work experience. Here they are required to use action research as a means of planning, implementing and evaluating specific interventions used to teach topics from the CSEC curriculum over a 6 weeks period in secondary schools. N.B. Candidates who have completed the New Double Option Science diploma programmes from The MICO University College or Church Teachers College (with a GPA ≥ 2.5) may) may be exempt from Level 1 Chemistry courses.
