Course content

This programme leads to initial teaching qualifications for those who intend to teach in further education colleges, sixth-form colleges, adult education centres, art colleges, healthcare or community organisations, the public services and a wide range of commercial and voluntary organisations. The programme covers the skills needed for teaching and classroom management and helps students to explore the theory underpinning teaching and learning. The core programme takes place in a placement college. Student teachers complete a minimum of 100 hours of teaching experience during the programme. In Phase 1, you will be attached to a placement college of further education or similar institution for three days a week to observe teaching and undertake teaching in your subject area. You will be supported and assessed by a mentor as well as your tutor at the university. You will attend the university for the remaining two days of the week. You will complete between 25 and 50 hours of teaching during this phase. In Phase 2, you will attend your placement college for four days a week to complete your teaching practice and to participate fully in a range of professional activities. You will attend the university for the remaining day of the week.

The aims of the programme are:

- To enable trainees to gain awareness of a range of key theoretical and practical issues relating to the teaching of literacy in the lifelong learning sector.

- To consolidate your knowledge of how language and literacy is acquired and learned and consider issues relating to language change and empowerment in light of a range of learning theories.
