We have designed our PGCert Education – Working with Children with Literacy Difficulties in collaboration with the Oxfordshire Local Authority.

This course is for those who want to lead on work with children with literacy difficulties in primary and secondary schools. It is ideal for experienced teachers and graduate teaching assistants.

You will have the opportunity to:

  • network with other practitioners
  • access information about local jobs specialising in work in the sector.

Our School of Education combines high quality teaching, significant research and consultancy activity. We teach in collaboration with the Oxfordshire Local Authority. This reflects a long standing, ongoing partnership with the Authority and local practitioners.

The course meets the criteria for the taught elements of Associate Membership to the British Dyslexia Association (AMBDA). You can apply for full AMBDA status by completing additional observed and mentored practice with a qualified AMBDA practitioner. You can organise this through the course for an additional fee.

Learning and teaching

Our teaching methods support both the theoretical and practical elements of the course, such as the practical projects in modules 2 and 3. They include:

  • lectures
  • seminars
  • workshops.

For each module, the course contact time is typically:

  • one whole day and five evenings (approx. 24 hours contact time)
  • two online discussions (approx. six hours of contact time).

Assessment

Each module is assessed with a 4000 word essay or report. Assignment schedules are timed to meet your needs as a busy practitioner. Your assignments will be based on the work in your own professional context. For example, case studies of the assessment and intervention of two children.

Research

The School of Education is a thriving centre for educational research and teacher professional development.

Course Leader, Georgina Glenny, currently runs a project investigating the use of text-to-speech software to support reluctant writers in local primary and secondary schools. Students of this course have been involved with this study. Rachael Falkner, co-tutor on the course, is researching children's perspectives on assessment.

We hold two major research conferences each year - the School of Education Research Conference and the EdD Colloquium. All students are invited to attend our annual Research

Seminar Series (which attracts both internal and external speakers).

The School’s six research groups exist to encourage engagement in research, publication, conference presentations, seminars and workshops:

  • Inclusion and Wellbeing
  • Policy, Partnership and Leadership
  • STEAM pedagogy and learning
  • Humanistic Perspectives on Education
  • Early Years
  • Applied Linguistics

Career prospects

The course is organised by Oxford Brookes in partnership with Oxfordshire Local Authority and meets the criteria for the taught elements of Associate Membership to the British Dyslexia Association (AMBDA).

The PGCert enables teachers to assess people for exam concessions and the AMBDA qualification is the leading quality standard for specialist work in the field.
