Course Description

This course is designed to give students with good IT skills (normally forming a significant part of your first degree) the ability to teach ICT across the 7-14 age range and, in the longer term, progress your career by giving you the subject knowledge to become an ICT co-ordinator in school, Key Stage 3 Co-ordinator, or head of department. School Experience You will spend three blocks of time in schools ? one in a primary or middle school at Key Stage 2, one in a secondary or middle school at Key Stage 3 and one in a sector of your choice. You will also study modules in Education and Professional Development, Teaching of Core subjects, the Teaching and Subject Development of ICT and Subject Leadership and Co-ordination. You will be introduced to a range of exciting and innovative strategies through which new technologies are being used in school to enhance learning quality. The PGCE Key Stage 23 course gives you experience in both primary and secondary schools, so you can use this experience to decide where to progress your career after completing the course. You will also be taught about the use of ICT across the curriculum, and how ICT can be integrated into other subject areas. ICT is a shortage subject, particularly at secondary level and a vital part of the curriculum. Consequently teachers specialising in ICT are often very sought after by headteachers. The employment record from this course is normally high. A PGCE is an intensive course and at Newman we have a great deal of experience training students to be excellent teachers. Teaching Methods and Assessment A combination of lectures and tutorials are used alongside support from individual tutors, in well-resourced IT rooms. Assessment is primarily through individual and group coursework. ?Students, particularly those at Key Stage 2 demonstrated excellent capability in using interactive whiteboards to support teaching and learning, making lessons active and motivating.?
