Post Compulsory Education and Training Professional Graduate Certificate of Education
COURSE INFORMATION (2013 ENTRY)
2 years part-timeHealth and Life Sciences
Coach Lane Campus
This is a two year, part-time programme for those working in the Post Compulsory Sector (work-based learning, education community and voluntary sector, wider workforce), who are either teaching literacy or embedding literacy into their teaching. A programme of subject specific professional studies is offered by a range of highly professional and experienced lecturers; their aim is to develop students understanding of educational policy and procedures, teaching and learning theory and practice and planning, assessment and evaluation procedures with literacy specific emphasis.. Through a highly successful timetable of workshops, students expand their subject knowledge and address any skills gaps that they may initially have.
The programme reflects the national structure, which identifies two exit points. The first is the successful completion of the first module, which confers Threshold Status, as required by LLUK. The second is the successful completion of the programme.
The requirements of the National Standards for Teachers/Trainers/Tutors have been embedded into this fully endorsed (by SVUK) programme and will lead to QTLS. The team’s strong focus on inclusion and meeting the needs of students and their learners has been applauded by OFSTED.
As the University is the lead partner in the Centre for Excellence in Inclusive Learning, all of our programmes, including the PGCE, benefit from innovative teaching and learning strategies which are gained fro sharing practice with other CETT partners. These partners include FE and specialist colleges, Adult & Community learning, work-based learning, secure estates and the voluntary sector.
LEARNING AND TEACHING METHODS
There are six modules each of 20 credit value, across the two years of the programme. Assessment is carried out through written assignments, observations of teaching practice, presentations and portfolio.
The programme incorporates threshold status and is equivalent to the SVUK Diploma (Level 6).
The programme supports those already working in the post compulsory sector to gain qualified status. It will support career development and progression within the sector
