This course provides a route into teaching in the post-compulsory education and training (PCET) sector, which includes vocational training, sixth form colleges and adult education.

Course overview

The PGCE (PCET) is a professional teacher education programme that will qualify you to teach in the post-compulsory education and training sector which includes sixth form colleges, further education colleges, vocational training and adult education.

The PGCE (PCET) is popular with graduates whose degree subjects are not widely taught in secondary schools, such as sports science, health and social care, psychology and dance. Our course equips you to educate adults and young people, sharing your knowledge and helping others fulfil their potential.

The full-time pre-service PGCE (PCET) is a robust, stable and popular provision with a great reputation. The programme benefits from its direct link to SUNCETT, one of the only 10 Centres for Excellence in this Sector. The programme is directly informed by both the national and international education research and development work of the team.

This pre-service course is for graduates who don’t have previous experience of teaching. If you are already employed in the PCET sector, we also offer an in-service part-time PGCE (PCET). The University, through its dedicated Placement Office, will help to arrange a minimum of 100-hours teaching practice placement in the Learning and Skills sector. This is a valuable opportunity to design, deliver, assess and evaluate teaching and learning in the sector, under the guidance of a mentor in your subject specialist area.

Please note you will be expected to pay travel and subsistence costs relating to placements.

According to the 2015 Ofsted inspection, “the training of good-quality Further Education and skills teachers enables them to make a valued contribution to the colleges and settings in which they work”.

Ofsted has recognised key strengths of the programme:
-Retention, completion and achievement rates are consistently high
-Trainees and NQTs work with confidence and expertise to plan and teach lively, interesting and challenging lessons that enable learners to make progress and achieve
-Trainees and NQTs improve their learners’ English and mathematics skills
-Trainees and NQTs ensure that learners recognise the impact of the values of tolerance, respect for the law, democracy and equality on their day-to-day life and work

In addition, there is a specialist pathway for graduates wanting to teach English to adults. It would prepare you to teach English at a range of levels to learners in diverse settings such as Further Education colleges, adult and community education and offender learning. For some English-pathway students, bursaries may be available. Bursaries are reviewed by the government on an annual basis.

School Direct is a route into teaching which involves schools working in partnership with accredited teacher training institutions, such as the University of Greenwich, to devise a training programme. The programme is a combination of school based training and university-based courses. This route allows candidates to apply to a lead school with an expectation of employment in either the school in which they trained or within the School Direct provision on successful completion.

School Direct offers two types of training places; the School Direct Training programme and the School Direct Training programme (Salaried). The School Direct Training programme places are open to all graduates and funded by tuition fees paid by the trainee. Home and EU students may be eligible for a tuition fee loan to cover the cost of tuition fees charged available through Student Finance England. In addition, a bursary may be available from the National College for Teaching and Leadership (NCTL).

The School Direct Training Programme (salaried) is open to graduates with three or more years' career experience. Trainees will be employed as an unqualified teacher with a salary subsidised by the National College for Teaching and Leadership. This programme replaces the Graduate Teacher Programme (GTP).

School Direct places are offered by a school or group of schools in partnership with an accredited teacher training institution.

The University of Greenwich is currently working in partnership with the following schools for primary School Direct training places: Bensham Manor School; Heronsgate Primary School; Saint Mary Magdalene Church of England Primary School.

All School Direct places will lead to recommendation for qualified teacher status (QTS) and in the case of the School Direct Training programme a PGCE.

For more details visit http://www.education.gov.uk/teachschooldirect.

The aims of the programme are:

- To train you to teach in two consecutive phases, i.e. FS/KS1 or KS1/KS2 or KS2. NB: KS2 is comprised of two consecutive age phases (Years 3-4 and Years 5-6)

- To develop the practical knowledge and theoretical understanding you will need to work with primary school children

- To give you an understanding of the National Curriculum and the learning needs of children

School Direct is a school-based approach to teacher training, which in many ways mirrors the life of a ‘real’ teacher, as you are based in school from the very start of the training and for the majority of the course. The School Direct training at Newman runs alongside existing PGCE and undergraduate programmes. When you successfully complete the course, you are awarded a postgraduate certificate in education (PGCE with QTS) with the opportunity to attain additional Masters’ credits.

Newman University continues to provide high quality School Direct primary and secondary places, working in partnership with a number of schools across the region. As one of the main School Direct providers in the West Midlands, Newman University has secured a significant number of places with school partners for September 2017.

Schools work in partnership with Newman University to recruit trainees and train them according to an agreed programme. For most trainees this will involve undertaking training at both their School and the University on occasions throughout the year.
School Direct is also a way of growing schools’ own teachers and future leaders; it can make a key contribution to school improvement strategy and help the continuing professional development of staff.

How does it work?

The programme lasts for one year, during which time the trainee is based mainly in school. Schools are at the heart of the School Direct process and agree with the University about how the training programme delivered. Some schools prefer Newman University to deliver all aspects of pedagogical training, while some schools choose to deliver aspects of this programme themselves. The majority of our partner schools work in partnership with other schools; these clusters vary in size and some might cover both primary and secondary phases. Each cluster of schools has a ‘lead school’ that manages and leads the programme. Once you have completed the year and training, schools might offer employment within the school or partnership.

Salaried and Training Routes

There are two types of programmes available across both primary and secondary phases. Schools will have already indicated which types of places they are offering. Both programmes are for one academic year and are full-time. Salaries and bursaries are available to support you and your training – but these depend upon the places offered by the school and the phases/subjects. Individual schools decide whether they are offering salaried or training places. Further information is available on the ‘Eligibility and Funding’ section.

1. School Direct - Salaried Route
Aimed at those with three or more years’ career experience. This experience will normally have been gained since leaving university and does not have to be from an educational setting, although it could be. Primarily, the salaried route is designed to career changers.
You are employed as a member of staff in school, as an unqualified teacher and paid a salary (between £15,976 and £25,267).

2. School Direct - Training route
Open to all graduates who meet the minimum entry requirements. You are strongly advised to check the entry requirements prior to application. If in doubt, contact our admissions department for clarification.

Funded by tuition fees (£9,250 - 2017 entry: paid by the trainee directly. You will be eligible for the standard student support package, including training bursaries, tuition fee loans and scholarships where applicable.

Overview

The Faculty of Natural Sciences offers a range of MSc programmes in Scientific Research Training which includes an option to undertake an international placement at a institute/industry in which an extensive 8 month research project is undertaken.
Masters in Research Training with International Placement are available in a range of disciplines;

Keele University has developed collaborative relationships with a number of international research institutes and industries which has enabled well qualified students to develop their scientific training and employment skills within an international context. We believe that this will help to develop future employees with an international outlook, competent in at least one international language in addition to English. For all students the course offers an opportunity to carry out a project within Keele University under the supervision of international experts in their appropriate discipline. International students thus have an opportunity to receive extensive training in English.

All students will spend the first part of the course at Keele, and either remain at Keele to undertake their approximately eight month research project or will undertake a placement in an international research institute/industry as laboratory research assistants, working on projects in the host institution and pursuing a programme of research training. Financial support for example through the EU ERASMUS Scheme may be available to support students undertaking their project/placement outside the UK in Europe. International students may opt to undertake their placement within the UK or at Keele University.

See the website https://www.keele.ac.uk/pgtcourses/scientificresearchtrainingwithinternationalplacement/

Within these courses training is available in a range of Research areas for example in the MSc in Biosciences Research Training: Immunology, Fisheries, Entomology, Parasitology, Medical Sciences. Please consult Prof Dave Hoole for further information.

Applicants who are not fluent in English are expected to have attained the equivalent of an IELTS score of at least 6.5. Candidates who do not meet these criteria, but can evidence appropriate, alternative professional qualifications and/or experience will be considered.

Course Aims

The aim of the courses is to enhance the employment prospects of science graduates within their chosen research discipline by developing and improving their scientific, laboratory and language skills. The courses will also provide basic skills in vocational and education training through the students’ work programmes. At the end of the training period students will:

- Have systematic understanding of knowledge, and a critical awareness of current problems and/or new insights, much of which is at, or informed by, the forefront of the subject of their chosen discipline

- Have conceptual understanding to evaluate critically current research and advanced scholarship in their discipline

- Be able to evaluate methodologies and develop critiques of them and, where appropriate, to propose new hypotheses

- Have developed scientific skills and knowledge, and transferable skills, in a international workplace setting

- Have comprehensive understanding of techniques applicable to their own research

- Be able to record and reflect on skills and learning from the research laboratory experience through the ‘Realise’ career development scheme.

- Be conversant with the running of a modern research laboratory.

- Have developed skills in an appropriate international language, including scientific vocabulary.

- Have developed organisational and commercial awareness.

For those students undertaking a placement/research project in Europe the work and achievement on the programme will be documented in the EU Europass, a record of achievement signed by all parties. All students are required to pursue a self reflecting activity which enables them to identify their personal and professional skills and development needs

Teaching & Assessment

Students must complete formal assessment on all modules. During the placement this will include keeping an extensive record of the training attended and skills obtained, with a reflective report (for the research training portfolio), as well as a dissertation on the project undertaken during the placement.

Additional Costs

Although students who under a placement project within another EU member state may be entitled to an ERASMUS scholarship there may be additional costs required to meet living expenses and insurances within the host country. The amount required will be dependent on the cost of living in each country.

Distinctive Keele Curriculum

MSc programmes at Keele offers the added value of the Distinctive Keele Curriculum (DKC), which develops students' intellectual, personal and professional capabilities (Keele Graduate Attributes) through both subject-specific and generic workshops and activities.

Scholarships

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 Primary teacher training programmes are currently working across a broad range of areas. Some are working as classroom teachers and mentors to PGCE students, while others have jobs as deputy and assistant headteachers. Graduates in this area can also be found working as headteachers and educational consultants.

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.

Why study this degree at UCL?

The UCL Institute of Education (IOE) has been providing first-class teaching training, in partnership with schools and colleges for over 100 years and all of their initial teacher training programmes have been rated as outstanding. Founded in 1902, as a teacher training college in London, the IOE is a world-class research and teaching institute. IOE graduates are highly sought after in schools and colleges throughout London and the UK. The central location in historic Bloomsbury means that you are in the heart of London.

There are over 40 schools and colleges in the Greater London area and beyond participating in the School Direct (Salaried) programme.

Each of these offer student-teacher places in two key stages to gain a broad experience of teaching across primary age phases. Your training will focus on the delivery of the mathematics curriculum, on which you will spend 50% of your teaching time. The remaining 50% of your time will be teaching core subjects (English, science and computer science). Your training and teaching practice will focus on early mathematics, but it will be necessary for you to demonstrate competence in phonics delivery, inclusion and behaviour management.

The training students receive from one of the participating schools offering their chosen Primary Mathematics specialism, will enable them to become a skilled and confident teacher.

You develop an individual learning portfolio which holistically tracks your development over the programme with specific reference to your academic and teaching skills.

Typically you are assessed by a combination of written assessments, reflective teaching journals, teaching portfolios, and observations of your teaching practice.

At the end of the year there is a compulsory (assessed) student conference where you work with fellow subject specialists. If you are already in employment you must make arrangements to attend.

Employability

You must complete a minimum of 100 hours of teaching practice in an appropriate teaching environment. If studying part time these practice hours are split into 40 hours in Year 1 and 60 hours in Year 2.

At your teaching practice a placement mentor supports you with orientation with the school/college and beginning your teaching ideas. This mentor also helps you transfer your knowledge from theory to practice, observes your practice and gives you formative and summative feedback towards module outcomes.

Appropriate careers are in the full teaching role in learning and skills sector educational contexts. Our graduate employment record is very good. Students go on to work in a variety of professions including further education colleges and training organisations.

Some students gain employment in secondary schools or higher education. Other students have taken the opportunity to further their studies on relevant continuing professional development or masters’ courses at the University.

Careers

Graduates of UCL Institute of Education's English teacher training programmes are currently working across a broad range of areas. Some are working as English teachers and heads of English departments and faculties in schools, while others have jobs as mentors of English teacher training students. Graduates in this area can also be found working as senior leaders in schools.

Employability
Most of the student teachers trained through this route are employed by the training school or within the cluster after completing 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.

Why study this degree at UCL?

The UCL Institute of Education (IOE) has been providing first-class teaching training, in partnership with schools and colleges for over 100 years and all of their initial teacher training programmes have been rated as outstanding. Founded in 1902, as a teacher training college in London, the IOE is a world-class research and teaching institute. IOE graduates are highly sought after in schools and colleges throughout London and the UK. The central location in historic Bloomsbury means that you are in the heart of London.

There are over 40 schools and colleges in the Greater London area and beyond participating in the School Direct (Salaried) programme.

Each of these offer student-teacher places in at least one national curriculum subject area and many of them have places across a broad range of subjects.

The training students receive from one of the participating schools offering their chosen English specialism, will enable them to become a skilled and confident teacher.

The MA in Anthropological Research Methods (MaRes) may be taken either as a free standing MA or as the first part of a PhD [e.g. as a 1 + 3 research training program]. Read more
The MA in Anthropological Research Methods (MaRes) may be taken either as a free standing MA or as the first part of a PhD [e.g. as a 1 + 3 research training program]. In either case, the student completes a program of research training that includes the Ethnographic Research Methods, Statistical Analysis and the Research Training Seminar as well as a language option. All MaRes students are assigned a supervisor at the start of the year, who will help the student choose other relevant course options. Candidates must also submit a number of research related assignments which, taken together with the dissertation, are equivalent to approximately 30,000 words of assessed work. All students write an MA dissertation, but for students progressing on to a PhD, the MA dissertation will take the form of a research report that will constitute the first part of the upgrade document for the PhD programme.

The MaRes is recognised by the ESRC.

Visit the website http://www.soas.ac.uk/anthropology/programmes/maanthresmethods/

Aims and Outcomes

The MA is designed to train students in research skills to the level prescribed by the ESRC’s research training guidelines. It is intended for students with a good first degree (minimum of a 2.1) in social anthropology and/or a taught Masters degree in social anthropology. Most students would be expected to progress to PhD registration at the end of the degree. By the end of the program students will:

- Have achieved practical competence in a range of qualitative and quantitative research methods and tools;
- Have the ability to understand key issues of method and theory, and to understand the epistemological issues involved in using different methods.

In addition to key issues of research design, students will be introduced to a range of specific research methods and tools including:

- Interviewing, collection and analysis of oral sources, analysis and use of documents, participatory research methods, issues of triangulation research validity and reliability, writing and analysing field notes, and ethnographic writing.

- Social statistics techniques relevant for fieldwork and ethnographic data analysis (including chi-square tests, the T-test, F-test, and the rank correlation test).

Discipline specific training in anthropology includes:

- Ethnographic methods and participant observation;
- Ethical and legal issues in anthropological research;
- The logistics of long-term fieldwork;
- Familiarisation with appropriate regional and theoretical literatures;
- Writing-up (in the field and producing ethnography) and communicating research results; and
- Language training.

The Training Programme

In addition to optional courses that may be taken (see below), the student must successfully complete the following core course:

- Research Methods in Anthropology (15 PAN C011).

This full unit course is composed of Ethnographic Research Methods (15 PAN H002, a 0.5 unit course) and Introduction to Quantitative Methods in Social Research (15PPOH035, a 0.5 unit course hosted by Department of Politics and International Studies).

MA Anthropological Research Methods students and first year MPhil/PhD are also required to attend the Research Training Seminar which provides training in the use of bibliographic/online resources, ethical and legal issues, communication and team-working skills, career development, etc. The focus of the Research Training Seminar is the development and presentation of the thesis topic which takes the form of a PhD-level research proposal.

Dissertation

MA/MPhil Students meet regularly with their supervisor to produce a systematic review of the secondary and regional literature that forms an integral part of their dissertation/research proposal. The dissertation, Dissertation in Anthropology and Sociology (15 PAN C998), is approximately 15,000 words and demonstrates the extent to which students have achieved the key learning outcomes during the first year of research training. The dissertation takes the form of an extended research proposal that includes:

- A review of the relevant theoretical and ethnographic literature;
- An outline of the specific questions to be addressed, methods to be employed, and the expected contribution of the study to anthropology;
- A discussion of the practical, political and ethical issues likely to affect the research; and
- A presentation of the schedule for the proposed research together with an estimated budget.

The MA dissertation is submitted no later than mid-September of the student’s final year of registration. Two soft-bound copies of the dissertation, typed or word-processed, should be submitted to the Faculty of Arts and Humanities Office by 16:00 and on Moodle by 23:59 on the appropriate day.

Exemption from Training

Only those students who have clearly demonstrated their knowledge of research methods by completing a comparable program of study in qualitative and quantitative methods will be considered for a possible exemption from the taught courses. All students, regardless of prior training, are required to participate in the Research Training Seminar.

Programme Specification 2013/2014 (msword; 128kb) - http://www.soas.ac.uk/anthropology/programmes/maanthresmethods/file39765.docx

Teaching & Learning

This MA is designed to be a shortcut into the PhD in that two of its components (the Research Methods Course and the Research Training Seminar, which supports the writing of the dissertation) are part of the taught elements of the MPhil year. Students on this course are also assigned a supervisor with whom they meet fortnightly as do the MPhil students. The other two elements of the course are unique to each student: and might include doing one of the core courses from the other Masters degrees (Social Anthropology, Anthropology of Development, Medical Anthropology, Anthropology of Media, Migration and Diaspora, or Anthropology of Food), as well as any options that will build analytical skills and regional knowledge, including language training. The MaRes can also be used to build regional expertise or to fill gaps in particular areas such as migration or development theory.

The dissertation for the MaRes will normally be assessed by two readers in October of the following year (that is, after the September 15th due date). Students who proceed onto the MPhil course from the MA will then have the first term of the MPhil year to write a supplementary document that reviews the dissertation and provides a full and detailed Fieldwork Proposal. This, along with research report material from the original MA dissertation, is examined in a viva voce as early as November of the first term of the MPhil year by the same examiners who have read the dissertation. Successful students can then be upgraded to the PhD in term 1 and leave for fieldwork in term 2 of the first year of the MPhil/PhD programme. This programme is currently recognised by the ESRC and therefore interested students who are eligible for ESRC funding can apply under the 1+3 rubric. (ESRC)

Destinations

Students of the Masters in Anthropological Research Methods develop a wide range of transferable skills such as research, analysis, oral and written communication skills.

The communication skills of anthropologists transfer well to areas such as information and technology, the media and tourism. Other recent SOAS career choices have included commerce and banking, government service, the police and prison service, social services and health service administration. Opportunities for graduates with trained awareness of the socio-cultural norms of minority communities also arise in education, local government, libraries and museums.
