Course description

Our graduates make great teachers. It’s that simple. The Initial Teacher Education (ITE) course helps you develop an understanding of research, policies and practice relating to education in general and secondary education in particular. You’ll analyse and reflect on what you learn to connect research with the classroom.

We teach an approach to your work that will stay with you throughout your career. Our graduates are dedicated to lifelong learning, developing their professional practice, and using classroom-based research. You’ll learn everything the qualified teacher needs to know about planning, teaching, learning, assessing, policies and processes.

Routes offered

We offer a provider-led route plus School Direct with a choice of four different clusters of schools.

The routes are all quite similar, but the main differences for the School Direct routes are:

  • You’ll have your two school placements in the schools within the cluster that you are attached to, rather than in any school across the partnership.
  • The schools in your cluster will have a greater input into the PGDE programme throughout the year.
  • There will be a strong possibility of securing employment within the cluster of schools that you are attached to, subject to availability and suitability.

Age range

Secondary (11–19).

Masters credits

As well as a PGDE qualification and Qualified Teacher Status, you’ll gain 120 credits at masters level if you successfully complete the course. You can put these towards study for an MA Applied Professional Studies in Education.

Teaching

You’ll learn through seminars, group work, tutorials, individual consultations, practical activities. You’ll spend 24 of the 36 weeks in schools.
