Course content

This PGCE programme combines the very best of school and university training.

It lasts one year and is full-time. It provides trainees with an intellectually stimulating course that challenges their assumptions, while providing them with an in-depth practical experience of the classroom environment.

The course offers a range of opportunities for study in differing schools. Most importantly, it creates the opportunity to work full-time within a school environment and to be part of a school community.

The major aim of the course is to prepare trainee teachers effectively as specialists in their chosen subject and to produce teachers who are confident and competent in the craft of teaching, as well as being able to contribute within an active school environment.

The course also aims to facilitate trainee teachers in their development of critical inquiry, and to engage trainee teachers in the application of educational theory and current research. These latter elements contribute to the PGCE qualification awarded to trainees along with the QTS Certificate.
