Teacher Training In-Service

(Lifelong Learning)

CertEd, PGCE & PGDE (part-time, in-service route)

Our part-time programme is designed for those who are currently teaching or wish to teach young people or adults. The course combines taught elements with your practical teaching.

If you want to teach or are currently teaching young people or adults this course helps you to develop your teaching skills, reflect on current ideas about education and training, and to creatively explore the professional opportunities open to you. You will gain competence in planning, teaching and learning, and in working with students.

The course is a two year, part-time programme and is assessed through written assignments and practical assessment of teaching practice. The course is structured around modules which are based on different aspects of teachers’ work such as designing learning materials, assessing students, and evaluating learning and teaching.

The course is validated by the University of Huddersfield and leads to a University of Huddersfield award. The University of Huddersfield is a Centre for Excellence in Teacher Training in the Lifelong Learning Sector.

Students with a degree have the option of taking the Postgraduate Diploma in Education (advanced PGCE). This course is worth 120 credits at Master’s level.

Skills and Knowledge Developed:

The course aims to equip you with the skills, knowledge and understanding necessary to manage a variety of learning situations and contribute to the wider activities of colleges or training organisations. Through your employment or voluntary teaching, you will gain practical experience of learning and teaching alongside other professionals. You will gain confidence in planning teaching and learning, and in working with learners and other professionals.

Assessment Methods:

You will be required to deliver a minimum 50 hours of teaching per year which will be assessed by tutors and a subject specialist mentor. Academic credit is gained by undertaking assignments and providing evidence of achievement. This allows you to explore topics that are of interest to you and are relevant to your working environment and to your career development.

The modules are as follows:

• Teaching, Learning and Assessment

• Personal and Professional Development

• Teaching a Specialist Subject

• Curriculum and Professional Issues

As part of the course, you will complete a subject specialist module. This requires two days attendance at the University in year two (two days at Easter). You will be informed of the exact dates during the first year of the course.

All awards lead to a professional qualification for teaching in Further Education colleges, Sixth Forms, adult education and a wide range of other training and educational settings.

This course also provides a route to Qualified Teacher Learning and Skills (QTLS), the full professional status for teachers in Lifelong Learning (Education and Training). Please note that the course does not confer Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) for those working or intending to work in schools, although it is currently possible for people with QTLS to obtain work in schools as a qualified teacher.

Past students have progressed to the BA in Education and Professional Development or Master’s level study.
