About the course
The programme is aimed at those who want to teach children in the 11-16 age range, that is, at Key Stages 3 and 4.
In order to be awarded Qualified Teacher Status trainees must meet the Teachers' Standards set by the Government and so the programme is designed to enable trainees to achieve this by offering a balance of school and University-based periods during the year.
The programme is one-year, full-time and its structure is closely linked to the term dates of local schools, with registration taking place in early September and the course finishing at the end of June.
You will learn through a series of in school placements (usually 2) where you will learn your teaching craft and you will also attend theory based seminars and learning at the University. You will also undertake a series of assignments as part of the PGCE qualification, taught and assessed at the university.
You are interviewed by a member of the host school's leadership team and a tutor from the University. As part of the interview process you will be expected to deliver a short 'teaching' session to a small group of students and then have a one-to-one interview with the school team member and the university tutor.
How school placements work
Trainees undertake two periods of teaching; one in the Autumn-Spring and one in the Spring-Summer term. The aim is to give every trainee a wide range of experience, encompassing pupils of different ages and schools of different size and type.
For each teaching placement, trainees are assigned a university tutor who offers support and guidance before and during the placement. This complements the role of the school mentor, who is able to monitor and assist the trainees’ development on a day-to-day basis.
University tutors and school mentors work closely in partnership with one another to ensure the best possible outcomes for all trainees.
You can select a preference for one of your training placements on your application using the relevant placement code.
