The course is rooted in an appreciation of the fact that it is almost impossible to understand society without first understanding the place of sport. As our Chancellor, James Nesbitt, noted at a recent honorary degree ceremony for Sir Alex Ferguson, "sport matters". For example, sport plays a central role in identity construction and it is a socially constructed phenomenon that is embedded in the very fabric of cultures. It is also increasingly associated with issues like poverty, labor migration, crime, development, gender and social inequalities as well as being seen increasingly as a tool to address these.

“The Northern Ireland Curriculum aims to empower young people to achieve their potential and to make informed and responsible decisions throughout their lives.” The overall aim of our PGCE programme at Ulster is to support this aim and to foster the development of pedagogical competences in the following three areas: Professional Values and Practice; Professional Knowledge and Understanding and Professional Skills and Application. To achieve these aims the PGCE post-primary programme at Ulster University prepares student teachers to be competent in the following:

- the ability to plan, teach and assess worthwhile learning activities in their subject area(s) in post-primary schools in Northern Ireland for the 11-18 age group;

- the acquisition of the knowledge, understanding and skills that are essential for the promotion of learning among pupils;

- to assume responsibility for developing as competent reflective practitioners, able to monitor and evaluate their teaching performance;

- to realise a commitment to on-going personal and professional development in pursuit of sustained pupil learning and school improvement.

- Teaching and learning assessment -

a) Formal lectures are a core activity in teaching the Professional Studies generic component of all modules being the most effective way of teaching large classes. Interactive delivery of lectures is promoted through the use of presentation software. Videos, tape recordings and the use of emerging technologies are also used to illustrate lectures. Access is provided to lecture notes which are posted on the PGCE's Virtual Learning Environment site.

b) Practical classes are fundamental to the study of pedagogy and the delivery of taught material in the main subject area. As outlined in the module descriptors, students engage in a diverse range of practical classes including work done in ICT labs. All practical classes are designed to develop core teaching skills and to link subject pedagogy to research and professional development. Health and Safety procedures in the classroom are emphasised in practical classes.

c) Seminars are used not only to extend the lecture topics but also equip students with the skills to seek relevant research material and to present the material as a lucid exposition and argument within a given time frame. With the increasing amount of information available on the internet, the knowledge and skills to select appropriate, educationally sound material are vital to all potential teachers.

Assignments include structured essays, literature reviews, case studies, word-limited reports, poster presentations and the practical ICT Portfolio. It is expected that all students should be able to write a fully referenced educational/curriculum studies paper as evidenced by the School- Based Projects at Master’s level.

Career options

Course detail

- Description -

The ethos behind this programme is the development of person-centred cultures, using a professional practice-based learning model that embraces practitioner inquiry and practitioner research, thereby contributing to the development of knowledgeable and dynamic person-centred practitioners who are sensitive to the needs of people who use healthcare services. The programme values knowledge gained through critical reflection on practice experience used in conjunction with the range of knowledge sources. The delivery of person-centred practice (McCormack and McCance 2010) requires practitioners to know and understand self in the context of their practice. Critical reflection is one means to achieve this. Consequently, within the DPHC the focus is on the practitioner learning from practice, understanding the theory underpinning their professional practice-based learning through critical reflection, applying this learning to practice and finally providing evidence in the form of learning and development in practice in an academic portfolio mapped to learning outcomes.

- Course format and assessment -

Although some elements of the programme are taught or delivered online, most of the learning is achieved in and from practice, where the practitioner works with a practice based facilitator (who is a recognised teacher with the Ulster University) and completes a portfolio of their learning. Practice based facilitators enable the practitioner to select the most appropriate modules to match their needs and to meet the requirements of the award.

Methods used include: facilitation in practice, critical reflection, portfolio development, workshops, lectures, seminars/discussions, e-learning, guided reading, teacher and peer observation, presentation, creative methods and debate. Multi-media and other material may be used to support this.

Self, peer and teacher/facilitator assessment will be used throughout the course to assess the achievement of learning outcomes and will require students to demonstrate the blending of theory with practice through participation, critical reflection and by production of coursework, an assignment or portfolio of evidence. Students are also required to complete a Post Feedback Action Plan reflecting on the feedback received from summative coursework, what can be improved on and how they plan to achieve this

Career options

Students within the programme come to us with an existing employment background within health and social care. On completion of this programme we expect students to continue their employment in health and social care organisations with an enhanced range of transferable knowledge and skills to benefit their communities, individual patients/families and their carers and employer. We also expect graduates to achieve a higher professional and personal profile within their organisation, enhancing their prospects of promotion. Additionally, we expect a number of postgraduate students to progress to undertaking research studies within the Institute of Nursing and Health Research at the Ulster University and other institutions.
