Validated by Canterbury Christ Church University, this PGCE is one of the few nationally to have been recognised by Ofsted as ‘outstanding’. You will be supported by a team of highly experienced, approachable staff in a supportive and inclusive learning environment and will undertake a professional placement within your subject area.
The six modules you will cover in your studies are designed to complement your professional practice and the academic study you undertake will inform and be informed by your practice.
You will need:
In your personal statement, you will need to indicate sound reasons for wanting to teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector and have a clear awareness and experience of the sector.
You should also have academic and/or industrial and commercial experience to demonstrate involvement with young people or adults in the community.
You will need to be assessed as fit to teach, including an occupational health and criminal records check, according to the current government requirements.
All applicants must have an interview to confirm that the course is suitable for them.
You will submit a range of assignments including reflections, essays and practical tasks and lesson observations to earn 20 credits for each one of the six modules on the programme.
You will be observed in your teaching placement on eight occasions at regular intervals during the programme, four times by your CCCU and CONEL personal tutor, and four times by your subject specific mentor in your placement. The aim of these observations is to work with you to develop your practice.
You will also be required to make regular entries in a personalised reflective journal known as the Progress Log, which will chart targets set and achieved against the professional standards.
