Course overview

This initial teacher training course equips you to share your passion in a creative subject and inspire young people to fulfil their potential. D and T is a core subject in the National Curriculum at Key Stage 3 and there will always be a need for good D and T teachers.

Currently (2015) there is a national shortage of D and T teachers, so this provision fills an essential gap in the shortage of training providers across the country. PGCE Design and Technology is a 36-week Post-graduate programme which prepares trainees to teach in an 11-18 education environment. Recent developments in the past year have resulted in an innovative programme which is at the cutting edge of ITE.

This programme is also offered as part of our School Direct route.

University-based subject academics have extensive experience in school and have published and exhibited their work internationally and had influence in developments in the subject both on a national and international level.

The course has two strands. The first strand is based at the University and provides a solid grounding in theory and practical issues. The second strand is based in partnership schools.

The trainees spend a TDA specified minimum of 120 days on placement in partnership institutions. Theory informs practice and pedagogical knowledge is developed alongside subject specialisms. The Teaching Experience(s) with an emphasis upon a Partnership between the University course and the school further develops the concept of putting theory into practice whilst gaining confidence through increased contact with the school environment and facilitates progression towards the ITT professional standards. Many partnership schools employ trainees after successful placements.

It is expected that trainees, on being awarded QTS should offer at least one specialist field of knowledge to key stage 5 and a second specialist field of knowledge to key stage 3. All trainees are specialists in ‘Core’ design, regardless of their specialist field of knowledge. Fields of knowledge include Textiles, Food, Resistant materials and Electronics with Graphics throughout each area.
D and T at Sunderland adhere to the Design and Technology Association (DATA) subject related guidelines. As the professional body of Design and Technology, their requirements and benchmark statements are strictly adhered to within our programme and practical teaching experience is gained.

The University of Sunderland has a heritage of teacher training which dates back to 1908 so you can be confident that our courses are excellent preparation for a teaching career in which you can inspire young people to realise their potential.

The School Direct Programme (Salaried) is a new route into teaching at both primary and secondary levels. Participating schools, or clusters of schools that join together, are allocated a set number of student-teacher places which can be applied for. Students will earn a salary while they train.

Degree information

Students will be part of a school team from the start and will receive intensive support from experienced teachers in the classroom. Opportunities will exist to build networks with fellow trainees. This route leads to the award of QTS (Qualified Teacher Status).

There are two compulsory school placements. Students are expected to complete the associated tasks, and to build a portfolio of evidence during the academic year to demonstrate they have met national teaching standards.

Students do not undertake academic credits on this programme. However, all components will need to be assessed to gain QTS.

Where student teachers opt to gain the additional PGCE pathway, and less than 60 credits are achieved at level 7, but are successfully passed at level 6, a Professional Graduate Certificate of Education (PgCE) will be awarded.

Trainees may apply for an additional PGCE pathway during the programme (tuition fees apply). Students who gain 60 credits at level 7 (Master’s level) receive a PGCE; where 60 credits are passed at level 6 (undergraduate level) a Professional Graduate Certificate of Education (PgCE) is awarded.

Core modules
-Subject Studies (30 Master's-level credits)
-Wider Educational Studies (30 Master's-level credits)
-Professional Practice

Placement
As part of the programme students will spend time in placement at a school or college, during which time their teaching practice will be supported by a school subject tutor and mentor. For this programme students will spend the majority of the programme in school, employed as an unqualified teacher.

Teaching and learning
The programme is delivered via a series of lectures and workshop at the UCL Institute of Education for 15 days (10 days' Professional Studies and five days subject-specific training) spread over the autumn and spring terms. The placement schools are responsible for providing an additional 45 days of training activities, alongside the practical teaching experience. Students are assessed on their practical teaching and their progress in achieving the standards for Qualified Teacher Status by gathering evidence in the form of a portfolio.

Careers

Graduates of UCL Institute of Education's Design and Technology teacher training programmes are currently working across a broad range of areas. Some are working as teachers and heads of design and technology departments in schools and colleges, while others have jobs as education officers in museums. Graduates in this area can also be found working as lecturers on design and technology foundation courses.

Employability
Most of the student teachers trained through this route are employed by the training school or within the cluster after completing the programme. The nature of this route to Qualified Teacher Status is for schools to train student teachers who are committed to the values and ethos of the school or academy and wish to develop their teaching career within the school or cluster which invested in their training.

Why study this degree at UCL?

The UCL Institute of Education (IOE) has been providing first-class teaching training, in partnership with schools and colleges for over 100 years and all of their initial teacher training programmes have been rated as outstanding. Founded in 1902, as a teacher training college in London, the IOE is a world-class research and teaching institute. IOE graduates are highly sought after in schools and colleges throughout London and the UK. The central location in historic Bloomsbury means that you are in the heart of London.

There are over 40 schools and colleges in the Greater London area and beyond participating in the School Direct (Salaried) programme.

Each of these offer student-teacher places in at least one national curriculum subject area and many of them have places across a broad range of subjects.

The training students receive from one of the participating schools offering their chosen Design and Technology specialism, will enable them to become a skilled and confident teacher.

The Secondary Postgraduate Certificate in Education is designed for graduates who wish to qualify to teach design and technology in secondary schools.This course will equip you to become a confident, knowledgeable and innovative secondary design and technology teacher.

During the course, a variety of learning and teaching methods are used to simulate the secondary classroom experience, including demonstration, discussion, collaboration, microteaching, problem solving and presenting. These experiences will help you develop your communication skills which are vital to classroom success and effective learning and teaching.

Central to the course is your personal professional development. You will be actively engaged in reflection on practice during school placement and beyond as you seek employment and prepare for Newly Qualified Teacher Induction and Early Professional Development.

The course is taught in English but fluent Welsh speakers who decide to study at the University of South Wales may opt to undertake their school experience in Welsh-medium schools.

What you will study

The course is organised into two distinct areas:

- University based study
During these twelve weeks you will concentrate on the study of design and technology in relation to the school curriculum.

Opportunities for further skills development will be provided in a workshop context paying significant attention to health and safety considerations. Practical applications in your specialist subject will be developed in line with school practice and policy. You will also be introduced to a wide range of current issues, including Inclusion and Education for Sustainable Development and Global Citizenship, which complement the main curriculum.

Significant attention will be given to child welfare issues, including child protection, and related school policies and procedures. In addition, you will engage with research at Masters Level.

- School based experience
22 weeks of the course are spent on block school experience in two partnership secondary schools where you will gain experience at key stages 3 and 4. Prior to each stage of school focused activity, you will undertake directed observation tasks which will support your knowledge of school policies and practice.

School mentors work in partnership with university tutors to ensure that you gain a developing knowledge and understanding of assessment for learning, and behaviour for learning strategies to help motivate learners and support your learning.

In Wales, you do not have to take the National Skills tests to be recommended for the award of QTS.

To enhance employability, you will also have the opportunity to take the Health and Hygiene Certificate and the Workshop Health and Safety Certificate. These will develop ICT study skills, and accreditation in school based ICT packages, including ProDesktop, Art Cam, SpeedStep and Electronics in schools.

Learning and teaching methods

Normally, student teachers either attend university or are on school placement five days a week.

Assessment methods

Assessment is based on written assignments and project work as well as practical teaching competence. Assignments will be directly related to work in schools, wherever possible, with opportunities for you to develop your own particular interests within your subject specialism. This will be pursued significantly as part of the research project.

Employment Prospects

There is a high demand for teachers with the PGCE qualification. On qualification, you may apply for teaching posts, both within and outside Wales.
