COURSE OVERVIEW
The aim of the PGCE in Secondary Education: Design and Technology (Food, Textiles and Product Design) course at Birmingham City University is to develop capable and articulate teachers who can inspire children to combine designing and practical skills with knowledge and understanding.

The course seeks to develop committed, confident and dynamic teachers with a passion for their subject in an environment that offers top quality facilities, including modern food preparation areas and textile amenities.

We believe that Design and Technology is an exciting subject that allows pupils to be innovative and creative if they are taught by teachers who can motivate.

KEY FACTS
This is a professional teacher training course that leads to Qualified Teacher Status and it is available at both Level 6 (H) and Level 7 (M).

The National College for Teaching and Leadership bursaries are available for trainees on eligible postgraduate courses in England who are not employed as a teacher. Bursary amounts will vary depending on teaching subject and degree class.

Our facilities are second-to-none and include a new, dedicated teaching suite for food and textiles and a specialist room for design and technology teaching and independent work.

In the latest Newly Qualified Teacher (NQT) Survey (2011-13 aggregated data) 95 per cent of Birmingham City University trained newly qualified secondary teachers rated the quality of their training good or very good.

All students are guaranteed outstanding support from both their tutors at the University – all of whom have been exceptional classroom teachers themselves - and from the partnership secondary schools, of which there are more than 200 across the Midlands.

Two thirds of the course takes place in school and we ensure that students are offered a number of placements in a wide range of educational establishments - at least two different schools, plus visits to other schools, including a primary school - so valuable experience is gained in a variety of settings.

ENTRY REQUIREMENTS
You will need to have a good degree (minimum 2:2 but 2:1 or 1st preferred) from a UK higher education institution or equivalent, at least 50 per cent of which is in a food or textiles-related subject.

You must have a GCSE grade C or above (or equivalent) in both English language and mathematics prior to application and if you are offered an interview you will take a written test to assess your standard of English.

For entry onto a teaching course in September 2014 you will also be required to pass the Skills Tests in Literacy and Numeracy. Please visit the Department for Education website for further information.

There is an expectation that you will have had some general experience of working with secondary age students in a school setting. In preparation for the selection interview you are required to engage in a teaching episode, observed by an experienced qualified teacher.

As part of the selection procedure, the interview panel will expect you to demonstrate your knowledge of design and technology and will also assess personal qualities such as the potential to relate well to secondary age students, enthusiasm, sensitivity, communication skills and robustness and resilience for teaching.

Applicants must also meet The National College for Teaching and Leadership requirements for Initial Teacher Training, which means being medically fit and successfully completing an enhanced disclosure via the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).

COURSE STRUCTURE
This is an intensive and demanding course, which offers superb preparation for anyone who is committed to educating young people. Central to the curriculum is the study of education, pedagogy and professional practice from both generic and subject-specific perspectives, which is delivered using a combination of workshops, lectures, seminar groups and individual study.

To complement this is a programme of subject knowledge and enhancement that supports the development of subject pedagogy. Specialist subject knowledge is updated throughout the course to ensure trainee teachers are fully conversant with curriculum requirements.

ASSESSMENT
Modules are assessed through a range of directed tasks and targeted assignments. Trainee teachers are also required to complete a profile of evidence towards the achievement of the standards required by the National College for Teaching and Leadership for the award of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). Evidence for the Professional Development Profile is verified by mentors.

FURTHER STUDY
Our MA Education and Masters in Teaching and Learning (MTL) programmes are designed to serve the continuing professional development (CPD) needs of teachers. Birmingham City University trained teachers with PGCE credits at level 7 benefit from advanced standing on these programmes.

EMPLOYABILITY
This is an “11-16” course with post-16 enhancement, offering graduates maximum flexibility when looking for a teaching post. Employment prospects are excellent based on consistently high employability scores and demand for Birmingham City University trained D&T teachers.
