Course Content The PME course is designed to prepare high quality teachers for today’s second level schools. Students undertake a study of the principles of teaching and learning, develop practical teaching skills, and engage in a supervised teaching placement in at least two second-level schools.
Subjects Taught Course Structure
In the first year, school placement is carried out on two full days a week in a second level school. Students spend about 65 days per year in a school. In addition students undertake taught modules on campus at Maynooth University, providing the student with a repertoire of pedagogical skills and a professional, self-analytical and reflective approach to classroom practice.
