Information about the PGCE
The School of Education and Professional Development is pleased to offer an opportunity for Kirklees and Calderdale SCITT trainees to study two M level modules during their training year, leading to the award of Postgraduate Certificate Education.
Module 1 – Evidence Based Practice (30 Credits)
This module will focus on the development of trainees’ practice in relation to behaviour management. Assessment is based on a portfolio of evidence of your work in the classroom and a written reflection of the development of their practice in this area.
Module 2 – Curriculum Development (30 Credits)
This module provides a structured opportunity for trainees to develop innovative and original curriculum resources. It develops and extends trainees’ understanding of progression, and their ability to plan teaching and learning in relation to either subject matter, use of technology or a particular teaching strategy related to either subject matter, use of technology or a particular teaching strategy related to current educational initiatives. Assessment is based on the development and evaluation of a unit of work undertaken with pupils in the placement school.
It would be possible to continue your studies further to a full Masters of 180 credits during and beyond your NQT year. We aim to support your academic work as much as we possibly can; each module will involve 3 days of taught input, trainees will be enrolled as a part-time student and will, therefore be eligible to use all student services, library facilities and electronic resources. As well as group and personal tutorials, we provide writing frames for all modules as well as supporting materials on Unilearn, our virtual learning environment.
