In response to student interest, the MA will from 2015/16 include modules on leading and innovating in professional development, and analysing adult education policy and practice.

Part of the attraction of the MA is the networking among students working in education and training or human resources management, in the public and private sectors.

This PGCE programme is for those wishing to teach in the post-compulsory sector (Further Education and sixth form). It is not a school teaching qualification but there are now employment opportunities in some schools for post-16 teachers, particularly for teachers of vocational subjects. Applicants who do not have a degree should enrol on the Certificate in Education programme (see separate information).

The aim of the PGCE (PC) programme is to prepare students to plan, implement, assess and evaluate teaching within post-16 education and undertake a full teaching role. All course work is related to the actual teaching practice situation, and this balance between theory and application underpins the programme. It is taught in 13 Partner Colleges across the North West and covers all the requirements of a DTLLS qualification (Diploma in Teaching in the Lifelong Learning Sector).

The PGCE course leads to an essential qualification for teachers, trainers and tutors in the Lifelong Learning Sector (post-compulsory education). The certificate is designed for those who intend to take on a full teaching role, having responsibility for learners throughout the learning process and engaging in teaching at a range of academic levels within their subject specialism. The programme will introduce students to planning and principles of learning, learning media, methods of teaching, learning and assessment, and the underpinning educational theory to support their teaching practice.
Every student has a subject specialist mentor who provides support and guidance in the teaching of their curriculum subject.

A popular feature of this course is the opportunity to undertake some action research in your own teaching environment and to implement and evaluate change. Some trainees' projects are published in an annual journal so that other teachers and trainees can benefit from their findings

This course in detail

This course consists of three modules:

- Professionalism in the Lifelong Learning Sector
You will have the opportunity to examine in depth the context of professional practice in the Lifelong Learning Sector and to relate it to your own values and experience. You will consider the historical backgrounds of the sector and how these, along with recent initiatives, have shaped current understandings of professional identity and practice. You will examine the pressures for professional status and recognition for teachers in the sector, the drives for regulation and subsequent deregulation.

You will be encouraged to engage with a range of critical theoretical perspectives which will enable you to interrogate ideologies which operate through the discourse of 'professionalism' and to develop your own viewpoint.

The module comes together around two interlinked questions:
1. What is a professional identity?
2. How is this related to practice and the disciplinary regimes which shape the activity and subjectivity of the practitioner?

- Pedagogy in the Lifelong Learning Sector
You will focus on pedagogy in the FE context with the aim of expanding the repertoire of approaches to teaching and learning for FE professionals. This is informed by a range of theories of learning and models of teaching. You will explore key issues and challenges raised by the complex and fast changing environment of FE.

For example:
- Definitions of pedagogy and its role in effective teaching and learning with comparisons of different international approaches to pedagogical approaches.
- The importance of 'knowledge' in pedagogical practice
- A critical analysis of the way that theories of learning - behaviorist, cognitivist, constructivist and humanist inform pedagogical choice and practice.
- A critical analysis of a range of models of learning and their appropriateness to the FE context including experiential, inductive and problem based.
- Consideration of the theory of analogy and its place in FE teaching and learning.
- The role of technology in changing pedagogical approaches.
- The academic divide, vocational pedagogy and communities of practice and changing localities for pedagogy.

- Investigating practice
You will have an opportunity to develop an inquiry related to your own practice which can be assessed through either a report or a portfolio of work. This might include the development of pedagogical approaches or curriculum materials, or investigations into the achievement levels or opportunities provided for particular groups of learners. It could also include the development of professional practice through shadowing others or engaging in collaborative work across organisations. The syllabus will be determined by the focus of the inquiries selected by yourself adopting a 'learning set' approach.

How this course helps you develop

The PG Certificate aims to develop reflective practitioners at master's level. You will learn from other students with a wide range of experience working in various careers in the FE and lifelong learning sector.

The Further Education and Teaching PGCE provides a formal teaching qualification for people working, or wishing to work, in the further education sector. This could include a college of further education, a sixth form college or an organisation such as a private training company.

The programme has an excellent reputation and in 2007 we became the first post-compulsory teacher education provider in the country to be awarded an Ofsted Grade 1.

The programme is delivered through a partnership stretching across East and West Sussex that includes full-time courses at the University of Brighton (Falmer campus) and Northbrook Metropolitan College, and part-time courses at Brighton Metropolitan College, Sussex Downs College in Lewes and Eastbourne and Sussex Coast College in Hastings.

If you already hold a degree, it is anticipated that you will graduate with a Professional Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE), and there may also be an opportunity to gain masters-level credits. Applicants without a first degree will graduate with a Certificate in Education.

Course structure

Students who opt for the part-time route must be working in the post-16 sector, and are normally expected to continue teaching for at least 50 hours per academic year for the duration of the course.

For the part-time in-service route you will be required to attend one half-day session per week during college term times, in addition to your regular teaching commitments. The full-time route is aimed at those who are not currently teaching and is a combination of taught sessions at the university and a teaching placement at an appropriate institution.

The full-time route is taught on our Falmer campus. The part-time route takes place at our partner colleges; Sussex Coast College Hastings, Sussex Downs College (Lewes and Eastbourne) and Brighton Metropolitan College.

Areas of study

The programme is delivered through seven modules on generic teaching and learning issues relevant to the post-compulsory sector, and reflecting the key areas identified in the new standards. It is endorsed under the Equipping our Teachers regulations 2007 originally managed by the Standards Verification UK (SVUK) but now under the control of the Institute for Learning (IfL). It meets the new Professional Standards for Teachers, Trainers and Tutors in the Lifelong Learning (post-compulsory) sector.
