Course content

This programme involves three main phases. The first emphasises the teaching of key concepts and learning about planning, behaviour management, use of ICT and the development of literacy and numeracy. The second explores issues such as teaching diversity, inclusion, and the wider 16 to 19 curriculum. The third phase links the feedback from mentors, tutors and self-reflection to create a rounded practitioner. Much time will be spent on placement learning in the classroom environment.
