The PGCE Psychology (14-19)is a nine month innovative, intensive and unique course preparing graduates for the demands of teaching the 14-­19 age range in both the secondary and lifelong learning sectors.

Your PGCE in psychology will allow you to become an outstanding, inspiring educator who thinks critically about what this entails. You will be awarded a PGCE and recommended for Qualified Teacher Status, enabling you to teach in schools and to provide a strong foundation for working in the lifelong learning sector, especially further education.

The course is organised in partnership with schools and further education colleges where you spend 24 out of the 36 weeks teaching.

Course detail

On your PGCE 14-19 course here at Canterbury Christ Church University you will study three University-based modules Curriculum Studies, Professional Studies and Enhanced Studies and one placement-based module Professional Practice.

• Professional Studies
Professional Studies sessions aim to inform you about aspects of professional practice which are central to your work, whatever your subject, including how do we learn, how do we include all children, how is teaching a professional activity, how can education be organised and how can learning be assessed.

• Curriculum Studies
This module involves work in studying key concepts that underpin the various curricula and syllabi for your subject. The sessions allow discussion of different pedagogies and allow reflection on differing school approaches to the subject.

• Enhanced Studies
The module enables you to choose an area of personal interest to you to study this in more depth through a research project based in a school.

Suitability

Our students join the PGCE in psychology with a first or higher degree in psychology, criminology or social sciences or a related degree with work experience.

We welcome applicants who have newly graduated and those with experience in public sector working, business and industry, particularly where this work has enhanced your knowledge, skills and understanding in psychology.

The course is uniquely set up for postgraduates to gain experience teaching, learning and assessment both in a school setting and in college or sixth form environments.

Format

Your university-based sessions are taught through a series of workshops and subject input with an emphasis placed upon informed discussion, debate and knowledge exchange.

You will be prepared in designing and developing subject based materials to support and complement your placement based experience and practice. There is a practical focus on the skills and abilities required for teaching: for example, presentations, planning and assessment strategies. There is pair, group work, discussions and micro-teaching alongside an individual, personalised approach to developing as a professional teacher.

Assessment

Your assessment on PGCE 14-19 course here at Canterbury Christ Church University is through formative methods with a final grading completed at the end of the PGCE.

Each of your three University-based modules (Curriculum, Professional and Enhanced Studies) are assessed through a 4,000 word small-scale research piece and with each of these modules offering you the opportunity to gain 20 Masters level credits it is possible to gain a total of 60 Masters level credits through these three modules.

Both your two Professional Practice placements are formatively and then summatively assessed through the teaching files you have created, your reflective Learning Journal, regular lesson observations by the teachers/lecturers you work with on a day to day basis, your Curriculum Mentors in your teaching placements and your University tutor. There is also an Interim and Final report from both your teaching placements.

The Psychology PGCE programme has been designed to enable all students to demonstrate that they have met the Teachers' Standards across Key Stages 4 and 5 (14–19 age range). This programme prepares students to teach psychology in a flexible and exciting way.

Degree information

We draw on current research at the IOE and elsewhere to inform a student's psychology and social science teaching, encouraging them to engage with recent debates, literature and policy in the field. Our underlying aim is to develop students as reflective and highly skilled teachers. As a 14-19 programme, there is an explicit focus on teaching examination classes in an interactive way.

Students undertake two level 7 (Master’s-level) modules of 30 credits each, totaling 60 credits. These can be carried forward onto full Master’s programmes at the IOE.

The Secondary PGCE consists of three core modules: two Master’s-level (level 7) modules, which are assessed through written assignments, and the Professional Practice module, which is assessed by the observation of practical teaching in placement schools.

Completion of the Professional Practice module and the two level 7 (Master’s level) modules (60 credits) will result in the award of a Postgraduate Certificate of Education (PGCE). Completion of the Professional Practice module and one or two level 6 (undergraduate/Bachelor’s level) modules, will lead to the Professional Graduate Certificate of Education (PgCE). There are no optional modules for this programme.

Core modules
-Curriculum and Pedagogy
-Wider Educational Context
-Professional Practice

Placement
You will spend most of your time (120 days) in schools, working with mentors who support you through your two school placements. In our partner schools and colleges, students teach psychology at AS and possibly A level. At GCSE, most student teachers teach psychology and/or sociology. In some placements there are opportunities to contribute to relevant vocational qualifications and Key Stage 3 humanities. Your responsibilities will be equivalent to a practicing teacher but on a reduced timetable.

Teaching and learning
The programme is delivered via keynote lectures, subject lectures, seminars, workshops, tutorials and directed study days at the IOE as well as time spent in placement schools or colleges. Assessment is by practical teaching, assignments and portfolio tasks.

Students will also record their progress in a Career Entry and Development Profile statement. This will form part of an ongoing portfolio charting the student's continuing professional development.

Careers

Graduates of this programme are expected to work across a broad range of areas. Some will work as psychology teachers, while others will become heads of department and heads of year. Graduates in this area can also go on to work as senior leaders and teachers in charge of subject.

Employability
A PGCE from the UCL IOE carries considerable currency in schools, which alongside the quality of training you receive, puts you in a strong position in the employment market. We expect 100% success rate in gaining a post in a school by the end of the year.

Why study this degree at UCL?

Tutors on the Psychology PGCE are skilled classroom practitioners with extensive experience in secondary schools and colleges, in school leadership, inspection, educational research and consultancy.

At the IOE, students will participate in a range of lectures and seminars designed to enhance their development as a teacher. These interactive sessions will cover how children learn, assessment, lesson planning, behaviour management and subject-specific matters. A collaborative ethos is encouraged, with Psychology and Social Science PGCE student teachers working closely together, so that materials, resources and ideas are shared.

During their teaching practice placements, students benefit from our partnership with over 200 secondary schools and colleges in Greater London and beyond, which enables each of our students to become a skilled and confident teacher in their chosen subject specialism.

The Secondary PGCE consists of three core modules: two Master’s-level (level 7) modules, which are assessed through written assignments, and the Professional Practice module, which is assessed by the observation of practical teaching in placement schools.

Completion of the Professional Practice module and the two level 7 (Master’s level) modules (60 credits) will result in the award of a Postgraduate Certificate of Education (PGCE). Completion of the Professional Practice module and one or two level 6 (undergraduate/Bachelor’s level) modules, will lead to the Professional Graduate Certificate of Education (PgCE). There are no optional modules for this programme.

Core modules
-Secondary Geography: Developing Teaching and Learning (30 Master's-level credits)
-Secondary Geography: Learning in a Wider Context (30 Master's-level credits)
-Professional Practice

Placement
Students will spend most of their time (120 days) in schools, working with geography mentors who provide support during two school placements. We are fortunate to have a good choice of schools with whom we work, with many outstanding mentors and strong geography departments.

Teaching and learning
The programme is delivered via keynote lectures, subject lectures, seminars, workshops, tutorials and directed study days at the IOE, as well as time spent in placements. Assessment is by practical teaching, assignments and portfolio tasks.

Students will also record their progress in a Career Entry and Development Profile statement. This will form part of an ongoing portfolio charting the student's continuing professional development.

Employability
A PGCE from the IOE carries considerable currency in schools which, alongside the quality of training you receive, puts you in a strong position in the employment market. Last year, all those students who sought employment in a school were successful. We expect 100% success rate in gaining a post in a school by the end of the year.

Why study this degree at UCL?

Tutors on the Geography PGCE are skilled classroom practitioners with extensive experience in secondary schools and colleges, in school leadership, inspection, educational research and consultancy. The UCL Institute of Education's partnership with over 200 secondary schools and colleges in Greater London and beyond enables each of our students to become a skilled and confident teacher in their chosen subject specialism.

The Geography PGCE helps students to explore the purpose of teaching geography, developing their own philosophy for why a geographical education is important for young people. We believe in the practical competence of teachers being matched by a spirit of intellectual enquiry, focused on pupil acquisition of worthwhile geographical knowledge and skills. An appropriate balance of these attributes is the prerequisite of proficiency in the classroom.

The programme is designed to foster interest and expertise in geography education beyond the PGCE, and many graduates go on to complete their Geography Education MA in the first year of teaching.

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 Psychology teacher training programmes are currently working across a broad range of areas. Some are working as sociology and psychology teachers, while others have jobs as heads of department and heads of year. Graduates in this area can also be found working as senior leaders and teachers in charge of the subject.

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.

The aim of the PGCE Secondary Partnership is to enable you to develop the range of skills required to become a qualified teacher of pupils aged between 11 and 16 (with post-16 enhancement).

More specifically, you will learn how to:

Cope effectively in the classroom by developing your classroom management and control skills.
Develop a critical understanding of the curriculum and pedagogy of specialist areas.
Establish an understanding of a range of whole school issues, the values and assumptions that underpin them and their application to school and classroom practice.
Develop an understanding of pupils in school, their similarities and differences, particularly in terms of their needs, their behaviour, their motivation and levels of attainment.
You will hone these skills by undertaking subject specialist study and work on cross-curricular, focusing on school and classroom-based issues. This study, supported by the school-based work, will provide you with an integrated programme of professional training.

In addition, the PGCE Secondary Partnership can consitute the first year of the School of Education's MA Education. Successful completion of the PGCE will enable you to progress on to the part-time second year of this postgraduate degree, should you wish to do so.

Course content

Subjects available: Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Physics with Maths, English, Geography, History, Mathematics, Modern Foreign Languages, Physical Education.

The PGCE Secondary is the first phase of a career-long process of personal and professional development, which will equip you to become a secondary school teacher. The PGCE Secondary is a course in Initial Teacher Training which is accredited by the DfE, the successful completion of which will accord you Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). Our course has recently been inspected by Ofsted which resulted in an “Outstanding” grading for all aspects of our provision.

Each student teacher on the course specialises in one of the subjects listed above. Subject pedagogy is explored in curriculum groups, examining techniques for making each subject accessible and stimulating in a classroom environment.

Structure and Assessment

The course is organised as three modules:

Professional Issues in school based education
Teaching and Learning in the Curriculum
Self-directed Study

The Professional Issues in School Based Education relates to the Teacher Standards and is delivered in two parts, prior to each of the two extended teaching practices. The teaching is related to those classroom-based issues such as the psychology of learning, the law, curriculum groups, examining techniques for making each subject accessible and stimulating in a classroom environment and is followed up in subject groups and during school placements The block practices in the Autumn and Spring allow for practical opportunities for full professional development where there is a progression from observation, structured activities and group work to whole class work.

Teaching and Learning in the Curriculum and Self Directed Study are studied at Masters Level. The Teaching and Learning in the Curriculum Module draws on the international research expertise within the School of Education enabling student teachers to engage critically in issues relevant to the classroom and school, particularly those that impact on the success of children as learners. The Self Directed Study module draws on students’ experience during weekly visits to schools and their own small scale action research, and links this to critical engagement with published educational research.

These Masters modules provide an opportunity to explore, in a more theoretical way, the issues to do with teaching and learning through lectures and mixed subject and phase seminar groups taught in addition to sessions taught in a conference week usually after Christmas. In addition to covering Teacher standards these modules will enable assessment work to be carried out for the award of PGCE.

On successful completion of the course, student teachers will have 90 credits and QTS.

The Modern Foreign Languages programme will introduce you to the teaching of languages in secondary schools for young people aged 11-16. The programme lays emphasis on language as a form of communication and on the value of language learning as a way of understanding other cultures and backgrounds.

Our popular Modern Foreign Languages programme aims to:
-Empower you with the necessary knowledge, understanding and skills needed to become an effective and innovative teacher of Modern Foreign Languages.
-Extend your awareness of the range and scope of Modern Foreign Languages as a subject in schools today.
-Provide opportunities for you to experience and explore a variety of approaches for teaching.

During the practical seminars we will introduce you to how people learn languages and, correspondingly, how best to teach them in schools. You will also study the outcomes of research, theory and the application of these in the classroom and beyond

Throughout the programme, there will be three main opportunities for you to gain practical ‘hands on’ experience of the school environment: a fortnight in a primary school and two separate periods in our partnership secondary schools.

Structure

The course is organised as three modules:
-Professional Issues in school based education
-Teaching and Learning in the Curriculum
-Self-directed Study

Teaching and Learning in the Curriculum and Self Directed Study are studied at Masters Level. The Teaching and Learning in the Curriculum Module draws on the international research expertise within the School of Education enabling student teachers to engage critically in issues relevant to the classroom and school, particularly those that impact on the success of children as learners. The Self Directed Study module draws on students’ experience during weekly visits to schools and their own small scale action research, and links this to critical engagement with published educational research.

These Masters modules provide an opportunity to explore, in a more theoretical way, the issues to do with teaching and learning through lectures and mixed subject and phase seminar groups taught as a conference week usually after Christmas. In addition to covering Teacher standards these modules will enable assessment work to be carried out for the award of PGCE.

On successful completion of the course, student teachers will have 90 credits and QTS.
