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: plenary sessions on educational theory for all PGCE students.
  • 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.

Work placement / study abroad

Students nominate three secondary schools and three grammar schools for the teaching practice placements. Every effort is made to accommodate student preferences.

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.

Jurisdiction

The PGCE is a recognized teaching qualification in the UK. For those applicants wishing to teach in other jurisdictions we recommend that you contact the relevant authorities there to discuss their requirements for recognised teacher status.
