Gain the qualification you need to teach in the area of special educational needs in Post-16 and Further Education, previously known as Post-Compulsory Education and Training (PCET), and including 14-19 provision. Read more

Gain the qualification you need to teach in the area of special educational needs in Post-16 and Further Education, previously known as Post-Compulsory Education and Training (PCET), and including 14-19 provision.

It is suitable whether you are new to teaching and need us to find you a placement, or if you are already working as a teacher or trainer within the SEN context and want to become qualified.

The course maps to the national framework for teaching qualifications in Post-16 and Further Education, the new Diploma in Education and Training for Disabled Learners (DET, previously DTLLS). The course is recognised by the professional body, currently the Institute for Learning (IfL) and sector body the Education and Training Foundation (EtF). It enables you to apply for Qualified Teacher Learning and Skills (QTLS) status for Post-16 and Further Education, which is equivalent to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) in schools. QTLS is currently awarded by IfL who charge a fee for membership and QTLS registration. An employer may be willing to pay the fee for you.

On the course, you

  • develop as a teacher in special educational needs
  • develop your knowledge and understanding of educational ideas and theories
  • engage with the latest developments for special educational needs in the Post-16 and Further Education context

You apply the course theory through your teaching practice. This consists of at least 120 hours teaching over either one year or two. During the course, University staff and your placement or workplace mentor assess your teaching practice eight times.

Key areas covered include • planning and preparing to teach • assessment for learning • teaching methods • behaviour for learning • using technology in teaching and learning • progression against the professional standards • understanding your wider professional context.

Settings of Post-16 and Further Education and Training include • further education colleges • school sixth forms • higher education institutions • adult and community learning providers • private training companies • public services • 14-19 educational providers.

After successfully completing the course, you gain a level 7 qualification equivalent to DTLLS or the new Diploma in Education and Training, but at masters level, and you can use these 60 credits towards a masters course.

We have partnerships with a range of settings across the Post-16 and Further Education sector, who provide you with a wide range of placement opportunities.

If you do not have an undergraduate degree or equivalent and need an initial teaching qualification, you can study our CertEd Post-16 Education and Training. This route is not available with the special educational needs specialism.

Further information

This course is suitable for lecturers teaching in FE, Adult Education or for those training adults in industry or the public sector. Once you have completed the Postgraduate Certificate you can continue your studies to complete a master's degree in Education.

See the website http://www.brookes.ac.uk/courses/postgraduate/pgcert-education-further-education/

Why choose this course?

You will:

- Explore key issues and challenges raised by the complex and fast changing environment of FE.

- Have the opportunity to develop an inquiry related to your own practice.

This course in detail

This course consists of three modules:

- Professionalism in the Lifelong Learning Sector
You will have the opportunity to examine in depth the context of professional practice in the Lifelong Learning Sector and to relate it to your own values and experience. You will consider the historical backgrounds of the sector and how these, along with recent initiatives, have shaped current understandings of professional identity and practice. You will examine the pressures for professional status and recognition for teachers in the sector, the drives for regulation and subsequent deregulation.

You will be encouraged to engage with a range of critical theoretical perspectives which will enable you to interrogate ideologies which operate through the discourse of 'professionalism' and to develop your own viewpoint.

The module comes together around two interlinked questions:
1. What is a professional identity?
2. How is this related to practice and the disciplinary regimes which shape the activity and subjectivity of the practitioner?

- Pedagogy in the Lifelong Learning Sector
You will focus on pedagogy in the FE context with the aim of expanding the repertoire of approaches to teaching and learning for FE professionals. This is informed by a range of theories of learning and models of teaching. You will explore key issues and challenges raised by the complex and fast changing environment of FE.

For example:
- Definitions of pedagogy and its role in effective teaching and learning with comparisons of different international approaches to pedagogical approaches.
- The importance of 'knowledge' in pedagogical practice
- A critical analysis of the way that theories of learning - behaviorist, cognitivist, constructivist and humanist inform pedagogical choice and practice.
- A critical analysis of a range of models of learning and their appropriateness to the FE context including experiential, inductive and problem based.
- Consideration of the theory of analogy and its place in FE teaching and learning.
- The role of technology in changing pedagogical approaches.
- The academic divide, vocational pedagogy and communities of practice and changing localities for pedagogy.

- Investigating practice
You will have an opportunity to develop an inquiry related to your own practice which can be assessed through either a report or a portfolio of work. This might include the development of pedagogical approaches or curriculum materials, or investigations into the achievement levels or opportunities provided for particular groups of learners. It could also include the development of professional practice through shadowing others or engaging in collaborative work across organisations. The syllabus will be determined by the focus of the inquiries selected by yourself adopting a 'learning set' approach.

How this course helps you develop

The PG Certificate aims to develop reflective practitioners at master's level. You will learn from other students with a wide range of experience working in various careers in the FE and lifelong learning sector.

Careers

Your learning on the course may lead to better prospects for career advancement. Completion of the course shows a commitment to professional development and can be used as a credit to build towards a full MA Education.

Free language courses for students - the Open Module

Free language courses are available to full-time undergraduate and postgraduate students on many of our courses, and can be taken as a credit on some courses.

About the course

This Professional Graduate Certificate in Education is a nationally recognised and established teaching qualification for the sector. It will equip you to teach in a variety of environments such as FE colleges, academies and schools (post-14), adult and community education, work based learning, training providers, prisons, and public services.

The course is designed to develop your teaching skills. We’ll help you to reflect on your practice and develop as a teacher. You will also have the opportunity to complete an optional module that suits your own needs and preferences.

In April 2012, Ofsted awarded our initial teacher training FE and skills provision a grade 1 (‘outstanding’) for training and assessment of its trainees. The inspectors reported on our: ‘outstanding training and assessment which results in trainees being highly reflective of their practice and possessing a good understanding of their own professional development needs.’ You will also be taught by an experienced team who have published books and articles relating to teaching in the sector.

What you'll study

During the first semester, you will study two full days a week at the University and will be on teaching placement for two days. This early integration into teaching will help you to apply the theory and skills you’re acquiring in practice. It will also give you a sound grounding in the ethos of working within the sector. You will be assigned a subject mentor on your placement and a teacher training mentor from the University who will guide and advise you throughout the course.

During the second semester you will undertake a six-week block placement to experience the wider role of the teacher and establish and enhance your knowledge and skills from the initial placement. You will also complete a week in a different setting. This is a popular activity and was recognised by Ofsted: ‘A particularly successful and productive feature of the provision is the alternative placement during which trainees visit and observe in an unfamiliar setting.’

Ofsted rated Grade 2. Good in 2010, this nationally-recognised award is endorsed by Standards Verification UK (SVUK), and provides teacher education geared towards the post-compulsory sector (16+). Read more
Ofsted rated Grade 2: Good in 2010, this nationally-recognised award is endorsed by Standards Verification UK (SVUK), and provides teacher education geared towards the post-compulsory sector (16+).

It helps you develop the knowledge, skills and attributes identified within the LLUK Standards for Teaching and Supporting Learning.

This is a full-time pathway for graduates or applicants with an equivalent professional qualification. It is designed for applicants who wish to teach Adult Basic Skills, Numeracy. We expect you to have a relevant Level 3 qualification, e.g. ‘A’ level Maths. Some experience of Basic Skills teaching in further education, normally gained by visiting your local FE college and a relevant degree would also be ideal.

It offers initial teacher education for those who wish to be employed in a variety of post-16 educational and training establishments and will eventually enable the holder to submit evidence for Professional Formation and QTLS status once registered with the Institute For Learning (IfL). It is not therefore an appropriate training course for applicants who wish to teach in primary or secondary schools. It does not confer qualified teacher status (QTS) and does not provide the participant with a DFES number.

INSPIRE (the Innovative Scheme for Postgraduates In Research and Education) is for people with a strong research background who want to qualify as teachers. It's an intensive 10-month PGCE, designed to bridge the gap between STEM research and school science and mathematics by recruiting able researchers who are good communicators, and to develop the relationship between schools and Imperial College London.

As well as gaining a PGCE teaching qualification, participants are involved in INSPIRE activities which they develop with support from academic supervisors at Imperial College London. These activities allow schoolchildren to experience university level research activities, to participate in workshops, clubs and competitions, and to see cutting edge STEM in action with the aim of inspiring them to take their science and mathematics education to the next level.

With very competitive benefits this course will allow you to qualify as a teacher, and begin to address the shortages of science specialists. As a participant, you'll engage with Master’s level research in educational theory and policy. This opens up your potential to go on to hugely influence the educational system within the UK and beyond by linking universities, schools and government bodies in understanding the role science education can play in our society.
