Placed 6th worldwide in the 2017 Financial Times Master in Management rankings, the ESCP Europe MIM is a life-changing option for any career-focused student searching for both a European Identity and a Global Perspective.

This two-year, full-time general management Master programme provides the opportunity to study in up to four countries, with options ranging from ESCP Europe's own six European campuses to our 70 partners worldwide. Designed for students with Bachelor degrees (or equivalent) in any field of study (Master programme) or those without who have previously completed at least two years of university education (Pre-Master programme in preparation for the two-year MIM), it features more than 35 specialisations in Finance, International Business, Marketing, Entrepreneurship and many more.

The integrated programme curriculum, taught across our six ESCP Europe campuses, offers the possibility to obtain up to four national degrees in ESCP Europe campus countries (Germany, UK, Spain, France, Italy and Poland) - plus the option of dual degrees with our academic partners across the globe.

Because we value practical experience as an essential asset, Master in Management graduates leave with a minimum of 40weeks of professional experience. This ensures that you leave the programme with not only a world-class academic qualification, but also the invaluable intercultural practical experience top recruiters are looking for.

In addition to the study-internship structure, we also offer the possibility of following an apprenticeship study track, allowing for systematic structured periods at the School whilst also working in a firm for an extended learning experience.

If you are looking for international exposure, professional experience and a curriculum recognised as one of the best in the world, look no further than ESCP Europe's Master in Management.

  • Get practical experience and create your own network through case studies, field projects and internships.
  • Prepare to take on major responsibilities in tomorrow's economic environment by developing a European identity with a global perspective on today's economy.

The first year is focused on advanced learning within the different fields of intercultural management through core modules.

Further to this, students can choose from the rich catalogue of electives to further customise their learning experience and plan their professional career paths.

All School Direct routes lead to the award of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), which will allow you to teach either primary or secondary age groups in England and Wales. Read more
All School Direct routes lead to the award of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), which will allow you to teach either primary or secondary age groups in England and Wales.

With the School Direct Tuition and School Direct Salaried programmes, you work at a school and attend training at the university. Over the course of the year you will have experience of teaching in two of the many schools with whom we have established partnerships.

School Direct allows schools to recruit and select trainees, with the expectation that they may then go on to work within the school or group of schools in which they were trained.

You will be mentored by a successful teaching team with an outstanding national reputation and comprehensive research profile that informs course content.

The University of Brighton is an outstanding provider of teacher training. We offer both School Direct Tuition and School Direct Salaried programmes in primary and secondary age phases.

Course structure

To train as a teacher through the School Direct programme you need to apply direct to a school for a School Direct training place. If the school you apply to is one of our School Direct partner schools, then we will provide the academic education to support you during your training.

Our School Direct routes offer two types of training programmes: School Direct Training and School Direct Salaried Training.

• School Direct Training Programme:

The School Direct Training Programme is open to all graduates and funded by tuition fees paid by the trainee, who may be eligible to receive a bursary from the Teaching Agency (TA).

Scholarships may also be available for candidates who wish to teach priority subjects, and these are awarded by the relevant subject associations through a competitive application process. Those following this School Direct Training Programme will be registered for and can gain a PGCE award from the University of Brighton.

• School Direct Salaried Training Programme:

The School Direct Salaried Training Programme is an employment based route into teaching for high quality graduates with three or more years' career experience. The trainee is employed as an unqualified teacher by the school. The School Direct Salaried Training Programme replaced the Graduate Teacher Programme (GTP). We offer a one year part-time Evidence Informed Practice PGCE for those studying this route into teaching.

If you are training to teach in a secondary school, the subjects you can train to teach through School Direct are:

• High priority: physics, maths, computer science*, chemistry, modern languages
• Other priority: biology, design and technology, English, geography, primary - FS/KS1, primary – general.
• Other subjects: art and design, combined science, dance, PE, religious education.

*School Direct Salaried only

Areas of study

We offer programmes in both primary and secondary age phases.

The secondary subjects we offer are:

• art and design
• biology
• chemistry
• computer science*
• dance
• design and technology
• english
• geography
• mathematics
• modern foreign languages
• physical education (closed for 2016 entry)
• physics
• religious education.

*School Direct Salaried only

Careers and employability

Career prospects are very good. School Direct aims to give schools the opportunity to recruit and select the trainees that best meet their needs, with the expectation that those teachers may go on to work in the school or group of schools in which they trained.

If you are considering whether a career in teaching is for you, and you are a UK resident, the Department for Education’s School Experience Programme (SEP) offers 1 to 10 days’ classroom experience in a secondary school. For details, please check: http://www.education.gov.uk/get-into-teaching/school-experience.aspx

  • The qualification gained is a PGCE which is recognised internationally and you will also get a recommendation for Qualified Teacher Status. Successful completion will give you 60 Masters level credits, which can be carried forward to further study.

What is School Direct?

School Direct is a government-led initiative that seeks to place schools at the centre of Initial Teacher Education (ITE). Working with University of Roehampton, our partner schools take a leading role in recruiting trainee teachers and in designing and delivering the training programme. 

There are two possible routes if you are thinking of training via School Direct:

School Direct Training Programme (salaried)

This is open to high quality graduates. Applications are made on UCAS to individual schools or alliances of schools. The schools pay a salary based on that of an unqualified teacher but there is no government bursary. Trainees carry out training at Roehampton and within their school alliance.

School Direct Training Programme (tuition fee)

This route is open to all high quality graduates. The trainee can receive a bursary from the government at a level determined by the subject/phase of training and the trainee's degree class. Trainees carry out training at Roehampton and within their school alliance.

Structure

Both routes lead to a PGCE with 60 Masters credits on successful completion. There will be three assignments across the year, each leading to 20 Masters level credits. You will spend at least 120 days in school over the year long programme, and will also attend classes at Roehampton. Your main placement will be in the school that you have applied to and there will also be a shorter placement in another school which will add breadth to the experience.

You will be visited in school by a university tutor, and you will have a mentor in school. The training at Roehampton will enable you to reflect upon your practice within the broad context of educational theory so that you will feel equipped to teach in any school.

As a motivating and engaging primary school teacher, you will have the opportunity to make a positive impact on a child's life.

School Direct is a route into teaching which involves schools working in partnership with accredited teacher training institutions, such as ours, to devise a training programme. We have a successful track record of working with schools to offer School Direct training routes to Qualified Teacher Status. Collectively, we are committed to the development of outstanding teachers who have a transformative impact on learners' lives.

The key focus of our School Direct programmes is to equip you with the knowledge and skills to teach across the primary age phase (electing to specialise within either the 3–7, 5–11 or 7–11 age range). During your training, you will develop an understanding of the National Curriculum and the learning needs of children. You will also develop the professional values and practice that you will require to meet the broad demands of teaching.

The quality of teacher training in primary education was rated as 'Outstanding' in Ofsted's report on our initial teacher education provision in 2016. "The high employment rates on both core and School Direct routes which support local needs" was identified by Ofsted as a key strength.

Routes into teaching

We are delighted to work with a number of schools, alliances and multi-academy trusts in London and the South East to offer two School Direct routes into teaching:

School Direct salaried programme

School Direct programme

Both of our programmes include a combination of school-based training and university-based courses. Our programmes harness the knowledge, experience and expertise of our school colleagues within the partnership in the delivery of both programmes.

We have a long history of teacher training, going back over 100 years at Avery Hill Campus. Employment rates are consistently above national and London averages. Training is delivered by highly effective teachers from both our partner schools and the university.

School Direct salaried programme

Our School Direct salaried programme is open to graduates with three or more years' career experience. This does not necessarily need to have been in a school or education setting.

Trainees will be employed as an unqualified teacher with a salary subsidised by the National College for Teaching and Leadership. This programme leads to the recommendation of the award of Qualified Teacher Status.

School Direct programme

Our School Direct programme is open to all graduates and funded by tuition fees paid by the trainee. Trainees will study for a Professional Graduate Certificate of Education (PGCE) as well as the recommendation of the award of Qualified Teacher Status.

Home and EU students may be eligible for a tuition fee loan available through Student Finance England. In addition, a bursary may be available from the National College for Teaching and Leadership (NCTL). For more details on funding, visit the Department for Education website.

  • Professional Development (15 credits).

You will have the option to study both the Children's Learning and Development course and the Creativity in Learning and Teaching course at Master's level, earning 60 Master's-level credits.

The School Direct salaried programme is an employment-based route into teaching and will lead to the recommendation for Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).

The majority of training will take place within schools. The training programme will be personalised to the individual's professional needs but will include training in a range of areas. For example, teaching and learning, curriculum, assessment, working with parents and the community.

All training is closely aligned to support the trainee achieve the Teachers' Standards. In addition to this, taught input will also be provided by the University of Greenwich.

Both programmes are 1 year full-time.

Manchester Metropolitan University has a national reputation for initial teacher education which has been established over 100 years. Read more
Manchester Metropolitan University has a national reputation for initial teacher education which has been established over 100 years. Our Department of Primary Teacher Education has a team of over 40 primary teaching staff who between them have expertise in all primary curriculum subjects, enabling us to offer a wide range of specialisms. The majority of teaching staff are actively involved in research, linked to our Education and Social Research Institute, one of the leading UK centres for educational research. We have an Initial Teacher Education Partnership with over 500 primary schools and strong community links across the North West region, ensuring we can offer our trainees a diverse range of placement experiences.

Our aim is to train confident teachers and reflective practitioners who will have strong prospects for employment and career progression. Trainees have access to Manchester Met's dedicated Careers and Employability Service and within the PGCE programme are supported in securing their first teaching appointment.

After graduation we continue to provide support and advice to our Newly Qualified Teachers (NQTs), including online resources, conferences and peer networking.

Our full-time PGCE Primary Education provides intensive training leading to Qualified Teacher Status ('QTS') for early years establishments and primary schools in the 3-7, 7-11 or 5-11 age range.

School-based training is combined with taught sessions at university and independent study. Applicants can choose our University-led ('Core') PGCE training route, or one of our School-led ('School Direct') routes, both of which lead to QTS. We work in partnership with 18 school alliances in the North West of England to offer School Direct places (salaried and non-salaried).

University-led ('Core') route

Trainees typically spend around 12 weeks in university during the year, including a block at the start of the course, combined with at least 120 days of school-based training, in at least two different schools. Manchester Met organises placements.

School-led ('School Direct') route

Trainees are attached to a lead school within an alliance of schools - Manchester Met works in partnership with 18 school alliances across the North West region. Depending on the term times of the school(s) involved they will typically spend around 30 weeks in school and around four weeks in university for taught sessions. Placements are organised by the lead school.

On both routes trainees will experience school-based training in at least two different schools, and have the opportunity to undertake an inclusion placement with a focus on Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND). The School-led also includes a visit to a Key Stage 3 setting. Throughout the PGCE trainees are supported by a personal tutor, experienced teaching staff and mentors in university and at school.

Candidates can apply for both School Direct and University PGCE routes; both have the same entry requirements. Successful completion of either route includes 60 Masters level credits.

Early Years route (Manchester only)

This route mirrors the PGCE Primary Education programme, with an Early Years focus. Completing this course will enable practitioners to teach in both the Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1.

Applications for PGCE routes starting in September 2017 should be made online via UCAS Teacher Training which is expected to open in late October this year. Early application is recommended as places are limited. Please check our entry requirements before applying.

Assessment Only Route to QTS in Primary sector

Experienced, but unqualified graduate teachers, wishing to complete a formal qualification to gain Qualified Teacher Status may be eligible for this route. It will suit those who have taught in at least two schools or colleges, and who have substantial experience in two consecutive age ranges. It is not sufficient for candidates only to have experience of two schools.

Important information

Manchester Metropolitan University has been undertaking a review of the long-term future of academic provision at its Cheshire campus. It has now been confirmed that the University will withdraw from the Cheshire campus. This means that we expect the campus to close in the summer of 2019.

As the withdrawal from the campus will be a phased process we are still pleased to receive applications for one year full time postgraduate taught courses starting in 2017 on the Cheshire campus. We also continue to welcome applications for part time postgraduate courses of two years in duration in the Exercise and Sport Science department starting in 2017. Applications for courses that are expected to take longer than two years to complete are currently on hold.

Features and benefits of the course

-Choice of location - Manchester or Cheshire* for PGCE Primary Education. Early Years route also available at Manchester
-Choice of University led or School Direct routes
-Strong mentor and tutor support for trainees' personal, academic and professional needs (identified as a key strength by Ofsted in their 2015 inspection)
-Varied placement opportunities, including opportunity to do an inclusion placement with SEND focus
-Research-led teaching
-NQT support and opportunities for continuing professional development at Manchester Met
-Assessment Only route to QTS available for experienced, but unqualified teachers

Placement options

Manchester Met organises placements for trainees on our University-led ('Core') PGCE route through our extensive Initial Teacher Education Partnership. Our Partnership vision is to train 'outstanding, critically-literate professional teachers who will challenge and inspire their learners'.

The schools we work with share our commitment to aspiration and excellence, with a focus on strong mentor training and support for trainees. There is also an emphasis on national priorities, including behaviour management, literacy and numeracy.

Our partner schools cover a wide geographical area and diversity of social, economic and cultural backgrounds, ranging across inner city, suburban and rural settings, enabling us to offer our trainees a broad range of placement opportunities.

We organise placements starting with the trainee's term-time postcode and matching this with placement offers from schools. Trainees are expected to travel up to 90 minutes each way from where they live and to arrive in school 45 minutes before the school day commences. We take into consideration special circumstances, such as disabilities, cultural requirements and medical conditions. In addition, we match carefully to ensure a breadth of experience across different key stages.

Trainees spend at least 120 days on contrasting placements in two schools related to the two age phases of their particular route through the course, with time spent in each key stage/phase. They are attached to each school for a substantial period of time and expected to engage in the full life of the school.

In their first placement trainees gain experience across the full age range of the school and teach in one class for an extended period, taking increased responsibility for that class.

They then begin to teach a range of curriculum areas, as well as gaining an understanding of cross-curricular themes.
The second placement focuses on the whole curriculum and extended management of the classroom in order to meet the requirements for the Teachers' Standards.

Trainees are required to pass both periods of school-based training.

School Direct trainees will undertake teaching practice at their lead school and other schools within the alliance. Placements are organised by the lead school.

All trainees are supported in various ways whilst on placement:
-Every trainee has a personal tutor - this is the tutor who knows the trainee best at university and will usually teach them for some aspects of their studies. Personal tutors write trainee references for employment. For School-led routes the school writes a reference.
-Every trainee is allocated a visiting tutor whilst on placement. This tutor supports the school when assessing the trainee's progress and do do this observes each trainee teaching.
-Every trainee has a school mentor, this may be their class teacher or someone in the school who oversees placements
-Often there are multiple trainees on placement in each school, providing an inbuilt support network

This initial teacher training programme enables lead schools to choose the provider they want to work with. These schools play a key role in recruiting and selecting trainees and they work with the University to provide a high-quality training programme which leads to the award of the Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) with Qualified Teacher Status at Primary level. Applicants apply direct to a lead school and undertake their placements within the lead school’s partnership. Partnerships may include a mix of primary and special.

Following successful completion of the 60 (level 7) credit PGCE (QTS) year, students may then opt to progress onto the Postgraduate Diploma in Teaching Studies and then the MA in Teaching Studies with the University of Birmingham.

Students who have completed the 120 credit PGDipEd (QTS) year may progress directly onto the MA in Teaching Studies. 

There are two routes currently being offered:

  • School Direct students pay a tuition fee to the University of Birmingham and may be eligible for a bursary or scholarship. 
  • School Direct (salaried) is normally for graduates with at least three years’ work experience. Students are employees of their schools and are paid a salary. The University does not charge fees for this route. 

Course details

Students on School Direct primary routes at schools partnered with the University of Birmingham will normally undertake a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (School Direct) with Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) which will provide 60 credits contributing to Master's level.

Subjects offered

Currently, School Direct with the University of Birmingham’s PGCE (School Direct) is available in the following phases / subjects where an agreement has been put in place with a School Direct school:   

Primary

  • Primary 5-11 General Primary
  • Primary SEN 

Learning and teaching

The primary course is designed in conjunction with our partnership of schools, is founded on our long-standing expertise in teacher education and combines the phase, curriculum and learning and teaching expertise of specialist tutors and seconded teachers at the University with the expertise of school-based colleagues. School Direct combines the best of these elements while developing analytic and reflective practitioners.

The course combines school based learning coordinated by the School Direct ‘Lead School’ with lectures, seminars, workshops, tutorials and practical sessions at the university. Study at the University is largely within the School of Education’s dedicated building which includes specialist facilities, a specialist Education Library, student study areas and online learning support.

Employability

School Direct students enter their training with an expectation that, if they are successful in their training and achieve QTS, they are likely to be employed within the schools in the School Direct training alliance in which they have trained.

School Direct students studying with the University of Birmingham and its School Direct partner schools can expect to be highly employable. Success in finding first teaching posts for students on the university’s postgraduate programmes is very high – and substantially above national averages. In addition to this, teachers educated with University of Birmingham partnerships typically remain in the profession and build excellent careers in teaching with progression on to leadership and management roles in schools where that is their desire. A significant number who follow our postgraduate programmes take up the opportunity to complete Masters study at some point after their induction year, further enhancing their career development. Employability rates for University of Birmingham postgraduate trained teachers are among the highest in the country.

School Direct (Salaried) students will be engaged as unqualified teachers within their School Direct school and therefore are specifically employable in that they have been trained via an ‘employment-based route’.

Many of those who have trained to teach with the University of Birmingham are now in headteacher, head of department and similar roles across the West Midlands, nationally and beyond – and many give up time and expertise to contribute to our programmes.
