How will I study?
If you’re interested in teaching in schools, you take modules on the academic and professional study of a wide range of pedagogic, policy and philosophical issues. You’ll also spend one day a week in a local school. By the second term, you’ll contribute to teaching in English in the school where you’ve been placed.
If you’re interested in teacher education, you also gain experience of the way in which Initial Teacher Education (ITE) is delivered within the University to train new teachers. As you’ll contribute to teaching in English in schools and on ITE courses at the University, a professional qualification in teaching as well as experience of training teachers are essential for this route.
Assessment methods include essays, a presentation, a portfolio and a professional dialogue to demonstrate knowledge and engagement of pedagogy and professional issues.
Our aim is to ensure that every student who wants to study with us is able to despite financial barriers, so that we continue to attract talented and unique individuals.
