The most recent Ofsted inspection (June 2014) judged Edge Hill University’s initial teacher education for further education to be Outstanding. The report commended “the exceptionally high-quality training in further education” which “develops deeply reflective trainees, guided by expert mentors who help them to attain outstanding outcomes.”

This programme carries eligibility for Qualified Teacher Learning and Skills (QTLS) status. Since April 2012, QLTS has been approved by the Department for Education as being equivalent to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) for schools and therefore there is the possibility of teaching in a school if your specialist subject is part of the curriculum for the given age range.

A PGCE in Further Education and Training will provide you with an endorsed qualification that can be used to teach or train in the Further Education / Lifelong Learning sector. It is suitable for those who are looking to enter teaching in the sector for the first time, as well as those who are already working in further education, a work-based learning setting, the voluntary sector or in public sector training such as the Police, Fire Service, Health Service and Prison Service. The programme will provide you with a wide range of practical skills and the insights to support you in becoming a confident and credible teacher or trainer of the highest quality.

What will I study?

This is a practice-focused programme which will equip you with the skills and knowledge required to become an outstanding teacher and trainer in the Further Education and Training sector.

The programme will develop your professionalism, consider what makes highly effective teachers and trainers, and explore current issues in the Lifelong Learning sector. You will gain a detailed understanding of the Professional Standards for Teachers and Trainers in Education and Training through a combination of self-evaluation, action planning and reflection.

Selecting an optional module in English/Literacy, Maths/Numeracy or Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND), you will enhance your knowledge of effective curriculum design and development, examine the impact of resources and learning technologies, and evaluate innovative and creative approaches to teaching, learning and assessment in your chosen subject area.

How will I study?

The programme is delivered through a combination of lectures, seminars, tutorials and workshops, as well as professional practice.

Attendance is typically two days per week on campus, with three days per week dedicated to professional practice. Please note, your professional practice requires a minimum of 100 hours teaching.

How will I be assessed?

Assessment is through coursework and observations of teaching and training. The assessment strategies are varied but place a significant focus on developing knowledge and skills that will be useful in practice. Portfolios of evidence, drawn from the trainee’s practice, encourage the development of innovation in teaching and learning activities.

During the programme each trainee will be observed eight times. These observations will be shared between tutors and work-based mentors. This approach offers you feedback not only on generic aspects of teaching but also the teaching of your subject specialism.

There are no formal written examinations as part of the current assessment methods on this programme.

Who will be teaching me?

You will be taught by experienced tutors and work-based mentor trainers who are specialists in their subject area.

What are my career prospects?

Successfully completing this PGCE will give you a distinct advantage as you seek employment as a teacher in further education and training.

The programme is specifically designed to allow you to demonstrate achievement of the Professional Standards for Teachers and Trainers in Education and Training. These Professional Standards, published in May 2014, stipulate the minimum professional requirement in terms of knowledge, skills and professional values. Once you have completed this programme and are active as a teacher, trainer or tutor in the sector, you will be eligible to apply for Qualified Teacher Status Learning and Skills (QTLS) as part of the professional formation process.

For those candidates who may be experienced, and even qualified, within their professional sector, e.g. police and NHS trainers, undertaking a nationally recognised qualification may offer wider employment opportunities.

Technology is increasingly a key element in effective education and training. The web, mobile devices, interactive white boards, Virtual Learning Environments, blogging, wikis and email are tools that you may be able to use in your teaching. But how effective are they at supporting learning? New pedagogical models such as massively open online courses (MOOCs), learning analytics where data is used to analyse and improve learning, and rhizomatic learning are all explained and critically examined.

If you’re a teacher, trainer or learning technologist looking to enhance your skills around the integration, research and management of technology to enhance learning, then this course could be for you. You’ll explore the use of technology in your particular field, develop technical skills, including blogs, wikis and other social media, deepen your understanding of frameworks and look at how technology can enhance and support learning. A strong interest in developing teaching using information and communication technology is key - being an IT expert is not. The course is tailored around you. Choose from a range of options to match your role, experience or organisation to help you progress as an informed, reflective and inspirational practitioner.

This course combines making a difference in your particular teaching/training context with learning about how to undertake research in a systematic and rigours manner.

Much of your work is project based with outcomes of direct relevance and benefit to your particular teaching or training setting.

A typical participant may be a lecturer in Higher or Further Education, a teacher (primary, secondary, or specialist), a trainer in the public or private sector or a learning technologist.

Titles of work undertaken by students on this course have included: 

• Investigation of the Potential of Twitter as a Learning Tool in a Sixth Form College 

• Investigating the use of iPad technology in secondary schools: Assessing its role in teaching and learning in Key Stages Three and Four

Advice from graduate Olivia Durkin

"Although I may have not followed the typical path of a marine biology graduate, I have always remained flexible in the available job opportunities and therefore gained a very varied skill set, enabling me to adapt to different roles and projects. Do what you enjoy and it’s ok if you don’t end up being the dolphin trainer you thought you might be."

ABOUT MA ACTOR TRAINING AND COACHING

The MA/MFA Actor Training and Coaching course offers specialists of appropriate disciplines – actors or other performers, movement or voice teachers, directors or emerging directors in film, theatre and television – the opportunity to diversify by following a specialised study in the education and support of professional actors.

The course joins Central’s MA Voice Studies and MA Movement Studies to create a cluster of postgraduate degrees aimed at high-level training practices for theatre and performance. Please note the course does not offer training to become an actor, but enables students to work effectively as an educator, coach or director of actors.

Students are introduced to the principles and practices behind the training, education and support of actors. The course addresses various practice and theory interfaces of contemporary acting and brings a variety of methods into creative fusion.

Students may expect to encounter work associated with, for example, Chekhov, Lecoq, Grotowski, Meisner, Stanislavski, Meyerhold, Suzuki, Viewpoints and some methodologies appropriate for acting for screen. Students will also explore ways of developing aptitude in the fundamentals of performance and relate these to a range of production contexts.

Teaching methods include tutorials, group seminars and workshops. Practical sessions are designed to enhance understanding of acting processes and skills in pedagogy, together with associated study of acting techniques and issues of performance including theatre, film and television.

Students will develop advanced interpersonal, facilitation, coaching and pedagogy skills. These include: how to research, plan and deliver courses; knowledge of a wide-range of acting methodologies and practices, as well as some movement and voice; education and support of actors; research skills – both as an individual and through group research; presentation skills; and an ability to plan, conduct and critically reflect on their own practice as an actor trainer.

Students undertake a teaching/coaching placement whilst on the course, as well as placements to engage with different acting and production contexts, with duration ranging from eight hours to three months. Placements are a vital part of the course and enable students to develop pedagogic experience and hone their skills as an educator.

ASSESSMENT

This includes practical assignments, essay, and presentation and submission of a Practitioner Portfolio addressing specialist development and understanding, or a dissertation.

The MA in Theatre Directing is a one-year course on which students learn through practice in three main areas: working as a director of historical and poetic texts with undergraduate drama students, guided by our professional directors; working with new stage writing as taught by major contemporary playwrights and in collaboration with MA students in scriptwriting; creating a philosophical and critical language to identify the common elements and skills required by the theatrical art, in relation to the genres of painting, literature, architecture and music.

The longest established such MA in the country, it was founded in 1993 in response to the Gulbenkian Report on Director Training of 1989, by Tony Gash, who has taught at RADA as well as UEA. He continues as its director, teaching alongside James Robert Carson, Opera and Theatre Director, Steve Waters and Timberlake Wertenbaker, playwrights, and Mike Bernardin, an experienced actor trainer.
