You will be supported by a passionate and caring team of experienced tutors, who strive for excellence in the theory and practice of teaching. By studying with us, you will also have access to fantastic resources and support systems which will be available to you throughout your PGCE.
KEY COURSE FEATURES
Gain Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) on completion of the programme.
Our primary initial teacher education courses are judged by Ofsted as ‘outstanding’ - the highest grade attainable in an Ofsted inspection.
Students will be taught in lectures by experienced, expert practitioners in the field of education.
There are many educational enrichment opportunities available for students to get involved with e.g. the certification of SAK4A (Sainsbury’s Active Kids for All).
Students will have the opportunity to undertake a work placement as part of their studies, allowing them to spend time in a particular educational setting of their choice and explore their own particular interests.
Please be advised that the start date for the Primary PGCE is 31st August (TBC).
ASSESSMENT & TEACHING
Students will get to teach and learn alongside creative, reflective and dynamic practitioners who are passionate about teaching children. The programme encourages you to increase your understanding of teaching and learning processes in order to develop and maintain the high levels of enthusiasm, ability and passion necessary within the teaching profession.
Teaching will take place in interactive sessions. Tutors model good practice in the use of ICT and use lectures, seminars and group activities to stimulate and give you the confidence to be professional teachers. Assessments are used to ensure that you understand and can apply the knowledge you have gained whilst on the course - both in schools and on campus. This is done through a range of methods:
Audit of Subject Knowledge for Maths, English and Science
Graduates are very successful in securing teaching appointments at the end of their studies. Many take up employment in one of our partnership schools and go on to inspire and mentor students.
GCSE Grade C in English, Maths and Science. (equivalency tests acceptable and available). An undergraduate degree (minimum 2:2). A satisfactory DBS and a successful completion of physical and mental fitness to teach.
This is the overall rating calculated by averaging all live reviews for this uni on Whatuni.
