This course is suitable for applicants with subject experience from a wide variety of areas and industries. It leads to a teaching qualification in the post-compulsory education sector, which may also be used to teach in schools. Those holding a degree in the subject they wish to teach will take the PGCE or ProfGCE, and those with vocational qualifications and/or experience will take the Cert Ed.

The awards meet the national professional standards, determined by the Learning Skills Improvement Service (LSIS) and allow you to apply for Qualified Teacher Learning and Skills status (QTLS) when you have completed your course. QTLS has been recognised as equivalent to QTS allowing holders to work in secondary schools.

We equip students with the knowledge and skills necessary for the demanding role of teacher / lecturer. The course is endorsed within the national framework for the sector and constitutes the University's equivalent of the Diploma in Education and Training.

These four awards are also offered with subject specialist pathways in Mathematics and Numeracy, and English and Literacy. You may be eligible for a training bursary if you study one of these specialist pathways.

What will I study?

The aims of the course are to prepare students to plan, implement and evaluate teaching and learning activities in the post-compulsory education sector and to help students to develop appropriate knowledge, skills and attitudes. It equips students with an ability to reflect upon and learn from their professional practice and build students' confidence in their ability to perform their professional roles whilst creating a sound foundation for further professional and career development.

The teaching experience in partner colleges / centres is central to the course. You will be supported throughout the experience by a mentor who specialises in your subject area, giving you the confidence to take your industry experience into the classroom.

All students follow a course of study and research which covers an introduction to post-compulsory education; curriculum issues, particularly around inclusive practice; enterprise and quality; principles of learning and the characteristics of the post-14 learner; planning for learning and methods of teaching and assessment. Fully integrated into this course is a structured and supervised practical teaching component in one of our partner institutions.

The course consists of four modules:

1. Learning and Teaching: in Post-Compulsory Education and Training
2. Learning and Teaching: the Professional Tutor
3. Learning and Teaching: the Subject Specialist and Wider Context
4. Independent Study: Post-Compulsory Education and Training.

On the part-time pre-service programme, two modules are completed in Year One and two in Year Two.

What will I teach?

This course equips you with the skills required to teach, but not subject-specific knowledge. Schools and colleges have a wide curriculum and as long as we can find you an appropriate placement, we can accept you to train for any subject you have the relevant experience to teach.

However, two specialist study pathways are also available, with generous government bursaries to support your study:

1. English and Literacy
2. Mathematics and Numeracy.

You apply for the generic PGCE Post-Compulsory Education and Training course and can choose to specialise once you start the course if you have the appropriate subject background.

Teaching experience

We will only accept students if we believe we can provide a relevant placement opportunity, or if you have an appropriate agreed placement arranged prior to applying.

Full-time study

There are two full-time blocks of teaching practice - six weeks in the second half of the autumn term and ten weeks in the spring / summer terms. In addition, course students will spend one day a week in their host college early in the autumn term, and two days a week in January and February. During their time in the host college students are supported by a mentor - a member of staff from that college who is a specialist in the student's subject area.

Part-time study

Teaching practice is undertaken one day a week over the duration of the programme. During their time in the host college/centre students are supported by a mentor - a member of staff from that centre who is a specialist in the student's subject area. University sessions are held one day a week, in the morning, with directed private study activities being planned for the afternoon. This path is ideal for students who wish to work or have other commitments whilst on the course.

Assessment

Students are assessed on both course work and their teaching practice. The focus of assignments is determined by students own practice and subject specialism.

The course allows you to investigate a range of issues impacting on education in general and your own field in particular. We want you to challenge your thinking.

Each module has an assignment attached to it that is linked to your own experience, applying theory and practice and ensuring that your own working practices gain practical benefits from your study.

Specialist pathways

Choose from four pathways:

MA Education
MA Educational Leadership and Management
MA Special and Inclusive Education
MA Teaching and Learning

How will I learn?

You will study five modules. Research Skills and Education Policy and Practice are taught in a classroom environment. The other three modules are based around supported tutorials with tutors and peers. You will have an initial tutorial to discuss your direction and aims within the module. Further tutorials are available dependent on mutual need.

All modules, except for Reflection on Continuing Professional Development Experience, are research projects based on your area of professional interest. You will discuss your research proposal during your tutorials with your named supervisor and then be expected to study independently for around 300 hours over that 16 week module. Your final dissertation takes place over a longer period.

Taught sessions and tutorials are at our Clifton campus. The course can on occasion be undertaken in your own institution by prior arrangement. A part-time study mode is also available.

Qualifications

The award of PGCE is offered at three levels:
1. Professional Graduate Certificate in Education
2. Postgraduate Certificate in Education (where 60 Masters-level credits can be gained)

All of these are recognised teaching qualifications, but the postgraduate awards will allow fast-track entry to Masters courses. The choice of which qualification to take will be made while on the course. Successful completion of the course will lead to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).

What will I study?

A distinctive feature of our course is the curriculum breadth we offer. We provide modules in Teaching Primary English, Teaching Primary Mathematics, Teaching Primary Science and Teaching the Wider Curriculum. The Wider Curriculum module encompasses an introduction to the full range of foundation subjects along with RE and ICT. We also offer an introduction to the teaching of primary modern foreign languages for all trainees.

The Applied Studies in Education module provides an opportunity to engage critically with a wide range of educational issues, themes and thinking, as well as a very practically oriented preparation for periods of school based training. As part of this module, all trainees develop their subject specialism for the primary classroom in preparation for the future responsibility of subject leadership.

Developing an understanding of the primary curriculum, you will develop your subject knowledge as well as your understanding of curriculum purposes and progression. You will learn how to plan and resource your teaching in ways that engage and inspire young learners. In developing practical teaching and organisational skills, you will learn how to plan, teach and assess effectively. Understanding progression in learning, according to the diversity of needs and abilities of all pupils, will enable you to create an effective teaching environment that promotes and supports children’s learning. You will gain knowledge and understanding of the professional requirements for teachers along with an appreciation of the need for continued professional development throughout their career.

Assessment

The taught part of the course involves interactive lectures and seminars. There are no exams as coursework and teaching experience are assessed. Trainees undertake focused preparation in the core subjects (mathematics, english and science) and the full range of foundation subjects (history, geography, art, design and technology and physical education).

Students will also receive an induction into citizenship and the teaching of primary modern foreign languages. Creative cross-curricular approaches to teaching are developed and trainees are supported in strengthening their understanding of their specialist subject as it relates to the primary curriculum.

Placements

Approximately two-thirds of your year will be spent in primary schools. There are three periods of School-based Training: an initial placement in school during the autumn term, followed by two major block placements (a nine week period in the autumn and spring terms and a nine week block at the end of the course). There is also a ten day enhancement opportunity in the spring term, which will broaden your experience and will be organised based on each individual's needs and interests.

The school based training may be in city centre, suburban or semi-rural locations. This variety provides opportunities for a wide range of teaching experiences and lays a good foundation for your professional development. Course members are encouraged to develop increasing levels of self-reliance, independence, enterprise and capability to manage their own learning.

Qualifications

The award is offered at three levels. All are recognised teaching qualifications, but the postgraduate awards will allow fast-track entry to Masters courses:

1. Professional Graduate Certificate in Education
2. Postgraduate Certificate in Education

The choice of which qualification to take will be made while on the course, successful completion of which will lead to recommendation for Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).

What will I study?

The course aims to develop an understanding of the specialist subject in the context of the National Curriculum. In particular, the principles involved in the teaching and learning of the subject across the full age and ability range and the professional values and practice, subject knowledge and understanding commensurate with the particular subject specialism. This includes how children learn and how they develop cognitively, socially and physically and the understanding, skills and personal qualities necessary for managing the learning environment.

All trainees undertake a module concerned with the wider context of schools and education. This develops the knowledge, skills and attitudes required for your first teaching post in a secondary school. It also builds a foundation for further professional development. Elements of this module include both whole cohort keynote lectures and seminars, many of which are led by mixed groups of trainees supported by tutors. This allows you to meet the Teacher Standards by making secure connections between issues in school and your own professional practice.

Assessment

University-based modules: Learning and Teaching in the Subject, and Learning and Teaching in the Wider Context, are assessed at the end of the modules with reflection against the Teacher Standards. You will also conduct a piece of research-based, professional enquiry within the classroom, which is assessed by a formal written report and presentation of findings. A separate, formal assessment also takes place in practical teaching.

Placements

School or college experience is central to the course and at least 24 weeks are spent on placement in at least two different secondary schools or colleges. During the first phase, two days of school or college experience each week for three weeks are spent in school leading up to a six-week block placement. Trainee teachers are gradually given more responsibility and increase their contribution in both the classroom and to the corporate life of the school.

The second phase begins with a two day, weekly attachment for the first three weeks of the spring term, leading up to the final assessed 13-week block placement. In both placements the training programme is planned by mentors to allow progressive acquisition of the skills, knowledge and understanding students need to be recommended for the award of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).

Students are formally observed on a regular basis by their subject mentor as well as receiving a number of visits from the University, to monitor their progress, support their development and undertake their assessment.

This course provides graduates with the knowledge, skills and experience necessary to teach English at secondary level.

Qualifications

The award is offered at three levels. All are recognised teaching qualifications, but the postgraduate awards will allow fast-track entry to Masters courses:
1. Professional Graduate Certificate in Education
2. Postgraduate Certificate in Education

The choice of which qualification to take will be made while on the course, successful completion of which will lead to recommendation for Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).

What will I study?

The course aims to develop an understanding of the specialist subject in the context of the National Curriculum, the principles involved in the teaching and learning of the subject across the full age and ability range and the professional values and practice, subject knowledge and understanding commensurate with the particular subject specialism. This includes how children learn and how they develop cognitively, socially and physically and the understanding, skills and personal qualities necessary for managing the learning environment.

All trainees undertake a module concerned with the wider context of schools and education. This develops the knowledge, skills and attitudes required for your first teaching post in a secondary school. It also builds a foundation for further professional development. Elements of this module include both whole cohort keynote lectures and seminars, many of which are led by mixed groups of trainees supported by tutors. This allows you to meet the Teacher Standards by making secure connections between issues in school and your own professional practice.

Assessment

University-based modules: Learning and Teaching in the Subject, and Learning and Teaching in the Wider Context, are assessed at the end of the modules with reflection against the Teacher Standards. You will also conduct a piece of research-based, professional enquiry within the classroom, which is assessed by a formal written report and presentation of findings. A separate, formal assessment also takes place in practical teaching.

Placements

School / college experience is central to the course and at least 24 weeks are spent on placement in at least two different secondary schools or colleges. During the first phase, two days of school / college experience each week for three weeks are spent in school leading up to a six-week block placement. Trainee teachers are gradually given more responsibility and increase their contribution in both the classroom and to the corporate life of the school.

The second phase begins with a two day, weekly attachment for the first three weeks of the spring term, leading up to the final assessed 13-week block placement. In both placements the training programme is planned by mentors to allow progressive acquisition of the skills, knowledge and understanding students need to be recommended for the award of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).

Students are formally observed on a regular basis by their subject mentor as well as receiving a number of visits from the University, to monitor their progress, support their development and undertake their assessment.

The School Direct course is a flexible approach to teacher training. The majority of your time will be spent in the school, training in the classroom and supported by experienced teachers and mentors. You will also spend time studying at the University.

School Direct places are offered by a school or group of schools in partnership with NTU. The schools involved have an excellent history of involvement in teacher training and a long history of supporting trainees to become confident and effective teachers.

You can apply to more than one school with School Direct and you apply directly through UCAS. Interview and selection will be conducted by both staff from NTU’s School of Education and from the school.

At the University you will study for the same award as other postgraduate teacher trainees except that the delivery will have more emphasis on being trained within a school environment and will involve more staff from schools:

1. PGCE: Postgraduate Certificate in Education (with 60 credit points at Masters level)

Successful completion of the course leads to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and a postgraduate qualification.

You will be a registered student with NTU and your qualification will be an NTU award. This means that NTU has responsibility for the quality of your training and you will benefit from the combined expertise of the University and lead placement school. The exact form of the delivery of the year will depend on the school to which you apply.

Placements

You will work within the school or group of schools to which you applied. You may also be expected to spend time in a range of other key stages, or schools to observe best practice and expand your practical experience.

Places available

We are working with a large number of schools in the East Midlands area. Check our website, or the UCAS Teacher Training site for all the schools and teaching subjects available.
