This is an innovative course and the first of its kind in the UK. You learn about occupational therapy while on placement in the workplace, supported by one or two days a week of academic learning delivered at Sheffield Hallam University. Successfully completing this course makes you eligible to apply for registration with the UK Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). Registering with the HCPC enables you to work as an occupational therapist anywhere in the UK.

You learn from a highly respected team who will lead your learning in the core theories and principles of occupational therapy.

You take four periods of practice in occupational therapy health and social care settings and study nine academic modules. Modules you study include:
-Introduction to professional practice.
-Foundations for occupation based practice.
-Leadership and management in occupational therapy.
-Occupational therapy project (practice-based research dissertation).

Your academic modules guide you in developing relevant knowledge and theory that underpins occupational therapy practice, and are assessed through coursework. Throughout the taught modules we use your placement experiences in group discussions to relate theory to practice and enhance critical thinking skills.

You also spend a significant amount of your time in practice-based learning. In the first year, after a six week full-time induction period, you are placed in two different occupational therapy practice placements, each for 13 weeks from February to May and from September to November. You are on placement in these services from Monday to Wednesday, attend the university on Thursdays and normally have some personal study time on Fridays. Your practice in the service is assessed to meet professional requirements.

In the second year, you are on placement part-time for 12 weeks from February to May in a service where they may be no direct occupational therapy involvement but where there is potential for occupational therapy. This may be in the voluntary, independent or private sector. Again your academic study features alongside your practice-based learning. The remainder of the academic year is spent in full-time study and research and you usually attend university for one or two days a week.

Finally you complete a ten-week full-time placement in the early part of your third year as you finish the course. The course team are aware of the commitment that international students make to enable them to study away from their home country and the course is designed to allow sufficient time to have a break to travel.

This course develops your enthusiasm, confidence, knowledge and skills in teaching modern languages. You achieve qualified teacher status (QTS) equipping you to teach National Curriculum modern languages at Key Stages 3, 4 and post-16. The current shortage of modern-language teachers makes this a great choice of subject to teach at secondary-school level and beyond. Modern languages are a priority subject, so having the skills to enthuse and motivate others in French, German or Spanish will make it easier for you to find a job when you graduate. You may also be eligible for a tax-free bursary of up to £25,000.

During the course you:
-Deepen your subject knowledge and skills.
-Learn to use relevant literature, research and educational theories relating to teaching modern languages and the wider curriculum.
-Become a successful teacher of pupils at all levels of ability.
-Develop a wide range of interactive, engaging and tailorable teaching strategies.
-Develop your classroom management and behaviour management skills.
-Use a variety of techniques for monitoring pupils' progress.
-Learn about the wider role of teachers in school.

-Apply your skills and knowledge in a school context.
-Develop your evaluation and critical reflection skills.
-Meet the teacher's standards for personal development.

Specialist speakers are invited in throughout the year to enhance the learning experience.

Our modern language teacher-training students train to teach in one or more of the three main languages of French, Spanish and German. However, placements and employment prospects are greatly enhanced for those with more than one language to offer, so if you are a single linguist then we may make your place conditional on completing a National College for Teaching and Leadership funded French, Spanish or German extension course in the summer before the course starts.

With our PGCE you complete two contrasting placements in 11–16 or 11–18 settings. This allows you to experience the full progression from Key Stages 3 to post-16. In total you spend around 120 days on placement. While on placement you benefit from excellent support and mentoring from a university-trained mentor. We have placement links with over 600 schools and other institutions, and a third of our students end up being offered teaching jobs where they did a placement.

During the course, you’ll be able to choose to complete either the PGCE or the professional graduate certificate in education (ProfGCE). Both qualifications will earn you QTS status, but the PGCE also gives you 60 credits towards a masters degree.

School Direct

Through School Direct, the school or partnership of schools that you've applied to will be much more involved in your selection, recruitment and professional development as there is the expectation that you will be employed by them once qualified.

The aim of the course is to prepare you to be a qualified citizenship teacher who is passionately committed to the subject and able to progress to teach it confidently, meaningfully and creatively to 11-18 year olds in both secondary school and college settings. Read more
The aim of the course is to prepare you to be a qualified citizenship teacher who is passionately committed to the subject and able to progress to teach it confidently, meaningfully and creatively to 11-18 year olds in both secondary school and college settings. Your teaching and support is shared between the university its partner schools across the Yorkshire, Derbyshire and Humberside region.

You access a programme of university based subject training days focused on teaching citizenship, and led by specialist experienced citizenship practitioners. These are spread over the year, but 'front-loaded' to prepare you for your teaching placements. Most subject sessions take place on a Friday. Additionally, a smaller number of days will be focused on the teaching of subjects in the humanities - RE, Geography, and History - which help broaden your skills and knowledge, and prepare you for a wider range of teaching in schools.

Subject sessions in the university, and access to the university’s library resources, offer the necessary support for when you go onto produce the two required academic assignments for the award of QTS. During the course you can choose to complete either the PGCE or the professional graduate certificate in education (ProfGCE). Both qualifications achieve QTS but the PGCE also gives you 60 masters level credits, which you can use towards a full masters degree (180 credits).

Subject sessions are also very practically based – introducing you to a variety of resources, ideas and teaching techniques appropriate to the citizenship classroom in Key Stages 3, 4 and post 16. Working with other trainees in the university setting provides opportunities to share and explore other teaching ideas and strategies throughout the year. As a subject group we build a shared bank of ideas and resources for teaching pupils of different ages and abilities, which can be trialled in the classroom on placement and stored for future use.

School placements are central to the course. We have strong partnerships with secondary schools and colleges in the Yorkshire, Derbyshire and Humberside area. You complete two teaching placements, one in the autumn term between October and December and the second longer placement from January to June. During this time you are supported by a University-trained mentor in school, helping you develop your classroom pedagogy through advice on planning, regular classroom observation, and regular meetings to discuss progress and next steps.

School-based mentors also support you in completing a range of school-based tasks known as 'professional studies tasks', and an online tracking document known as the 'professional development portfolio' (PDP). By the end of the two placements you will be able to provide a range of evidence showing how you meet the qualified teacher status standards that are required by this course.

Your course tutor also visits you on both placements to observe you and discuss your progress, keeping in touch with your school-based mentor throughout.

In summary, on the PGCE Citizenship course you will learn how to:
-Plan and teach citizenship across Key Stages 3 and 4 in the active and creative ways needed to motivate pupils.
-Recognise and plan for progression in subject specific knowledge, skills and concepts - both in individual lessons and across sequences of lessons.
-Assess student learning and progress in individual lessons and over time.
-Appreciate and critically evaluate different approaches to teaching and learning, behaviour management, assessment, differentiation to meet the needs of different students, etc.
-Plan to meet the requirements of the current KS3 National Curriculum and current GCSE syllabi, with guidance on teaching post 16.
-Prepare to meet some of the wider aspects of the role of teachers in school.

If you are studying for a PGCE you may be entitled to a tax-free bursary. For further information about financial support see the funding pages on the National College for Teaching and Leadership website.

Learn how to share your enthusiasm for computing to inspire the next generation of students. This course enables you to gain qualified teacher status (QTS) with a subject specialism in secondary computing, enabling you to teach in secondary schools and post-16 colleges.

Computing teachers are in high demand, so the job prospects on qualification are excellent. As computing is a priority subject, you could be eligible for a tax free bursary of up to £25,000.

On the course you develop the skills, knowledge and understanding to teach pupils of all abilities by:
-Enhancing your subject knowledge and skills.
-Developing an understanding of the different pedagogical methods required to be an effective computing teacher.
-Learning to use relevant literature, research and educational theories relating to teaching computing and the wider curriculum.
-Using a variety of techniques to assess and monitor pupil progress.
-Learning about the ways schools and the education system function.
-Understanding different techniques and approaches to classroom and behaviour management.
-Learning how to plan effective lessons and develop resources which will enable all students to engage with your lessons.
-Learning about the wider role of teachers in school.
-Applying your skills and knowledge in a school setting.
-Developing your evaluation and reflection skills.
-Meeting QTS standard for teaching.

You complete two periods of school-based training in 11–16 or 11–18 settings. This allows you to experience the full progression through at least two key stages. In total you spend around 120 days on school-based training.

While on placement you benefit from excellent support and mentoring from a university-trained mentor as well as continued support from your university based tutor. Many students also manage to secure positions in the schools they have trained in.

All of our practical sessions take place in a purpose built computing classroom, which replicates the teaching environment typically found in schools.

During the course, you complete either the PGCE or the professional graduate certificate in education (ProfGCE). Both qualifications will earn you QTS but the PGCE also gives you 60 masters level credits, which you can use towards a masters degree.

By the end of the placements you are able to show how you meet the qualified teacher status standards that are required by this course.

Many of the mentors at our partnership schools have strong connections with the University, a number of them having studied here themselves. Many are also active in the local community of computing teachers to which all students on the course are invited, thus boosting opportunities for networking and understanding current issues in computer teaching.

Learn how to share your enthusiasm for physics and inspire the next generation of children and young people. Good physics teachers are in great demand and there are lots of opportunities for newly qualified physics teacher. Physics is now considered a priority subject, which means you may be eligible for a tax-free bursary of up to £30,000.

This course enables you to achieve qualified teacher status (QTS). It equips you to teach National Curriculum Science at Key Stages 3 and 4 and to teach physics at a higher level at Key Stage 4 and at post-16.

During the course you develop the skills, knowledge and understanding to teach pupils of all abilities by:
-Enhancing your subject knowledge and skills.
-Learning to use relevant literature, research and educational theories relating to teaching science and the wider curriculum.
-Building your confidence and enthusiasm to become a successful teacher of pupils at all levels of ability.
-Developing a wide range of interactive and engaging teaching strategies.
-Developing your classroom management and behaviour management skills.
-Using a variety of techniques for monitoring pupils' progress.
-Learning about the wider role of teachers in school.
-Learning about the way schools and the education system function.
-Understanding how to apply your skills and knowledge in a school setting.
-Developing your evaluation and critical reflection skills.
-Meeting the QTS standards for teachers.

With our PGCE you complete two periods of school-based training in 11–16, 11–18 or post-16 settings. This allows you to experience the full progression through at least two key stages. In total you spend around 120 days on school-based training.

While on placement you benefit from excellent support and mentoring from a university-trained mentor. We have placement links with over 600 schools and other institutions, we are also involved with a variety of lead schools on the School Direct programme, and many of our students end up being offered teaching jobs in the schools that they train in.

All of our practical sessions take place in purpose-built labs, which replicate the teaching areas typically found in schools.
During the course, you’ll be able to choose to complete either the PGCE or the professional graduate certificate in education (ProfGCE). Both qualifications earn you QTS status, but the PGCE also gives you 60 credits towards a masters degree.
