Project Objectives

  • To quantify the game demands of elite hurling using GPS technology.
  • To identify the physical and physiological characteristics of elite hurling players.
  • To quantify the training load demands of elite hurling.
  • To compare the elite and sub elite hurling demands.

Methodology proposed

  • Participants will be required to wear GPS technology during all training and games throughout the season.
  • Participants will be required to submit training load metrics via a simple questionnaire alongside GPS data collection.
  • Anthropometric and physiological measurements will be measure at distinct time points throughout.

Expected outcomes: (e.g. deliverables & strategic impacts)

The use of technology such as GPS & training load metrics has become widespread amongst elite inter county hurling teams. Despite this there is distinct paucity of published research to identify the game requirements. Similarly there are increasing demands on intercounty athletes with no published research quantifying this. This research will provide benchmarks for physical and physiological profiles of elite hurling athletes. Secondly the demands of intercounty hurling measured using GPS will allow those currently using the technology to make comparisons and refine training methods. Additionally identifying the demands on intercounty athletes would be particularly informative to the national governing body.

Project Objectives

To design an instrument capable of providing enhanced positional accuracy within 15 minutes of first reading for stationary systems.

Methodology proposed

  • Currently about ±3m (in X and Y) is the accuracy from a GPS signal. Due to limitations imposed from the positions of the “visible” satellites the error in the z-axis is ~100m.
  • We propose to use the new European GNSS system in conjunction with advanced statistical analysis for mitigation systematic and random errors.
  • Typical field applications require readings no faster than 15- minutes. Position systems are stationary, therefore we can take multiple readings for statistical analysis. Through the use of multi-frequency readings (GPS provides 2) and well understood atmospheric models we can minimise systematic errors.
  • Firstly we will investigate designs for multi-receiver systems. The known relative positions of each additional receiver in will allow us to combine data for further enhancement. Optimal design of this formation will be key.
  • The second area of investigation will be the use of the GNSS and GPS in tandem. The aim will be the further reduction of systematic errors.

Expected outcomes: (e.g. deliverables & strategic impacts)

A portable instrument capable enhanced position measurement, within 15 minutes of first r eading, for stationary systems. Dissemination will be achieved through peer reviewed journal publications, presentations and conference proceedings. This research has the potential to attract external funding from sources such as SFI, EI, and EU funding schemes.

This programme aims to develop all the skills, knowledge and understanding you’ll need to become a responsible and effective secondary school teacher in your chosen subject. Find out about the programmes: 

Why train with Goldsmiths?

We have a strong and longstanding partnership with a range of schools in London and south-east England and work closely with them to plan and implement our PGCE (Secondary) programmes. 

In 2015, 98% of students who were recommended for QTS with Goldsmiths were employed in schools. This figure is higher than the national average. 

Our recent Ofsted inspection found that: 

Schools and NQTs testify that the course provides trainees with a solid pedagogical understanding of teaching in their subject area. They rightly believe this is due to an effective balance between practice and pedagogy. School Direct trainees are able to attend the same academic sessions at the university as trainees on the traditional PGCE courses.

All trainees feel these sessions equip them with a range of teaching strategies. They comment that they are encouraged to develop their reflective skills and this further enhances the quality of their teaching over time. 

School Direct

It is also possible to study this course via our School Direct programme. Please visit our School Direct page to see which schools offer this subject.

Additional costs

As well as your your PGCE fees, you will have to cover your travel costs to your school placements.

We produce reading packs electronically and in hard copy format. There’s a small charge for the hard copy reading packs. You may also be asked to contribute towards trips and some materials for your modules.

Structure

Autumn Term

The first four weeks of the Autumn Term are usually College-based, although you may begin regular visits to your first teaching experience school from the fourth week onwards.

In College, you spend most of your time in a subject group with your subject tutor, who has overall responsibility for your professional development. These sessions introduce you to the basic principles and approaches to teaching and learning in your subject.

There is also a block lecture programme, General Professional Studies (GPS), which explores issues common to all teachers. Within GPS you have an opportunity to study an option in more depth.

From around the fifth or sixth week until the end of the term, you are based for four days a week in a school, working largely within your specialist subject department.

Your school-based tutor is responsible for a programme in school that enables you to relate what you have learned in College to the context of the particular school, and to gradually build up your confidence and expertise in teaching.

Throughout the term, you continue to come into College on Fridays to work with your subject tutor and group to reflect on your experience in school and develop particular areas of expertise.

Spring and Summer terms

The first two weeks of the Spring Term are usually based in College, where you build on the experiences of the Autumn Term to develop your expertise further so that you will be ready to undertake an extended block of teaching.

From around the third week of term until the spring half-term holiday, you spend four days a week in your second school, coming into College on Fridays to reflect on your experiences and develop your expertise with your subject tutor and fellow students. Between the spring and summer half-term holidays you are based full-time in the school.

In effect you work as a full member of a school team, with responsibility for all aspects of planning, teaching and assessing the learning of a number of classes. During this period, you have the opportunity to investigate in greater depth one of the areas introduced in the Autumn Term lecture programme, and to relate it to the specific context of the school in which you are based.

The three or four weeks at the end of the Summer Term are used flexibly for both school and College activities to ensure that all aspects of your professional development have been addressed.

Learning & teaching

A range of teaching methods are employed across the PGCE programmes, including:

  • Taught subject sessions
  • Taught General Professional Study sessions
  • Practical workshops
  • Core lectures
  • Group tutorials/seminars
  • Individual tutorials
  • Individual and group presentations
  • Supported self-study

As with the other PGCE courses, you’ll be given the opportunity to work with children in a wide range of contexts. These might include focused interventions with individuals or groups, or larger scale events for the community.

We are now pleased to add the Dermatology Postgraduate Diploma and Masters online courses to our growing range. Our Dermatology courses are offered in conjunction with our partner, the University of South Wales, who have developed a strong reputation for delivering innovative learning.

Dermatology is an increasingly popular clinical entity amongst medical trainees and nurses within the UK and also internationally. This is particularly so in primary care where skin disease is the greatest disease prompting consultation in children and the second biggest problem amongst adults. For instance, in the U.K. approximately 15% of GP consultations are due to dermatology related conditions. In consequence, the British Association of Dermatology advocate within their Standards Document that all healthcare generalists managing skin conditions are suitably qualified and should be supported in this training by employers and commissioners.

Applicants will typically be health professionals such as GPs, doctors, nurses, physicians and pharmacists. For healthcare professionals who successfully complete a qualification, career progression would likely be facilitated, as well as the direct opportunity to improve patient care.
