About

The aim of a PGCE is to prepare the student to become a competent teacher. This is achieved through a variety of teaching and learning methods which are summarised below:

Lectures

  • Tutorials: group or individually designed to advise in the preparation for school experience, curriculum projects and/or school based investigations.
  • Practicals: involving simulations, role-play, practical activities and school experience.
  • Workshops: designed primarily to allow students to examine the relationship between theoretical perspectives introduced in lectures and their main subject specialism.

Assessment

Performance on the course will be assessed through coursework and school experience.

Attendance

PGCE is a full time course. It is 36 weeks in length with the exception of PGCE Technology and Design which is 42 weeks and includes a six week workshop practice in Belfast.

Monday to Friday 9.30 to 17.00. Induction for the PGCE takes the form of a two day residential programme at Bushmills Education Centre during the last week in August.

Career options

The course prepares the student to teach their chosen subject in a post-primary school or college. Successful completion of this course qualifies the graduate to seek registration with the General Teaching Council of Northern Ireland.
