This full-time, one-year course is designed to train you to apply your knowledge flexibly to a variety of contexts and to model good practice while teaching. You will focus on teaching and learning across the curriculum in primary schools. The course runs from September to July and you’ll spend most of this time (at least 24 weeks) on placement in schools.
The course enables you to develop your skills of critical analysis and engage with educational research at the same time as developing practical classroom skills through school experience. It is taught at master’s level which will allow you to gain up to 60 credits towards a master’s qualification in the future. By the end of the course, you’ll be a reflective practitioner equipped to continue your professional learning throughout your career.
Teaching and Assessment
In order to qualify for the award of Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) with Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), you must pass all school experiences and pass a 12,000-word portfolio at master’s level.
The portfolio consists of several tasks that you will complete during the year and share with your Academic Adviser, a member of university staff who will support you throughout the year. They will provide feedback on your work and support you to achieve. Each of the tasks is designed to support your development as a primary teacher and is directly relevant to your practice in the classroom.
School experiences are assessed against the Teachers’ Standards – you will be regularly observed by your mentor and link tutor and will collect evidence of your progress.
Where this can take you
This programme will enable you to achieve Qualified Teacher Status and work as a primary class teacher. While most graduates choose to work in a primary school, in previous years, some students have been employed in secondary schools, special schools or the wider education sector. Many of our previous students have progressed in their careers and now hold senior posts in their schools.
Students must hold an honours degree or equivalent qualification. Most successful applicants will have a 2:2 or above degree but we do accept applicants with a lower classification but an otherwise strong application. All applicants must have GCSE passes in English, mathematics and science at grade C/4 or above. We will consider applicants who are taking the relevant GCSEs whilst applying.
The University of Chichester has two campuses: one in the centre of Chichester, a charming and historic town, and the other close to the sea in Bognor Regis.
