Course content

This programme will help students develop the skills needed to teach their own subject in the post 16 sector.

The post-compulsory teacher education programmes at the UCL Institute of Education (IOE) are designed to meet the training needs and qualification requirements of people who are working or would like to work in the post-compulsory sector.

Our post-compulsory PGCE qualifications are recognised by the post compulsory sector and provide a basis for higher level qualifications, such as Master’s degrees and professional doctorates.

Following their most recent OFSTED inspection in November 2013, our post-compulsory programmes were deemed outstanding and given a Grade 1 (the highest possible grade).

Assessment

The programme is delivered via taught sessions, (including lectures, presentations, discussions, and classroom group tasks), and a practical teaching element based in a partner-provider organisation, usually a further education college or adult education institute. You are also required to read widely and to carry out written assignments in your own time. The programme is assessed through written assignments, module tasks and formal and informal observations of practical teaching skills.
