The Primary PGCE with English is designed to support trainees in developing the skills, values, knowledge and understanding required to meet the Teachers’ Standards. The programme will do this in the context of east London schools where it is paramount that teachers have the ability to support learning in a multicultural, multilingual urban environment. The Primary PGCE with English aims to equip trainees with additional expertise in supporting learning and teaching in English and with the confidence and competence to take on a leadership role in this field in the future.
In order to fulfil these aims you will:
• develop your knowledge, skills and understanding of what it means to be a professional in school; • engage in practical and theoretical enquiry as a key element in your development as a teacher; • reflect on and take responsibility for your own professional development; • have the necessary experiences to meet the Teachers’ Standards; • acquire the skills, knowledge and understanding to develop additional expertise in supporting learning and teaching in English; • be able to respond proactively and positively to change and thus enabled to make informed contributions to education; • develop your ability to read and write critically at Masters Level.
Primary PGCE at UEL:
The Primary PGCE with English is a partnership programme, written and developed in collaboration with schools. Much of your time will be spent in schools, observing learning and teaching, exploring the interface between theory and practice and working with pupils in a range of classroom settings. You will be an active participant in a diverse community of students. Inclusion, personalisation, and pupil voice are some of the key themes and values underpinning the programme. You will engage with research at Masters level.
