Course Description

What is a PGCE? The PGCE is the Postgraduate or Professional Certificate in Education, which you can take at any time after completing your first degree. It is a one-year full-time course after which you become a Newly Qualified Teacher (NQT) and are recommended for Qualified Teacher Status. The Postgraduate Certificate includes modules at Master?s level which may count towards a further Master?s award. We agree your award whilst you train with us. Our PGCE programmes are designed to develop your subject specialist knowledge alongside your hands-on classroom experience. Subject knowledge is only a part of teaching finding creative ways to interpret your knowledge into a language a child can understand is the key. We prepare you for the classroom, allowing you to develop your own thinking, teaching and knowledge base to a level which can be trialled in your placement. All our secondary PGCE courses meet the requirements for the professional standards for Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), which you need to teach in a school. Design Technology This is an exciting subject and an exciting time to be a member of a school design and technology team. This course is your opportunity to equip young people to understand and enjoy technologies that don?t even exist yet and also enjoy those that are fast developing. We specialise in Materials Technology which is the designing and making of products in metal, plastic and wood. Wherever possible we use project-based Design and Technology teaching, reflecting real identified needs and following the format of a design process. Due to the hands-on nature of this course, your degree should include a significant element of design and technology, such as product design or engineering, and your skills should be adaptable. The course includes specialised topics tailored to your needs and you will be able to broaden your skills and knowledge base to become a competent and confident design and technology teacher. Enhancement and booster course If your degree does not have sufficient subject content, you can take additional training before your initial teacher training. There is currently a funded short booster course and longer enhancement course available locally and nationally for Design and Technology.
