University-led Learning (PGCE)
We are committed to attracting the highest calibre of candidates into the profession who share a passion for life-long learning, both for themselves and the children they teach. We also believe that educational research plays a significant contribution in the development of pedagogical knowledge and understanding. Ensuring our trainees have access to the latest thinking and educational developments enables them to plan and deliver lessons of the highest quality, leading to outstanding outcomes for both trainees and pupils.
From September 2019, we will be working with the Buckingham Partnership SCITT, in collaboration with the University of Buckingham, to deliver a PGCE route into teaching.
During the course of the year, trainees will complete a range of modules, including three written assignments. These modules will closely support trainees' progress towards the Teachers' Standards and are aimed at developing classroom practice through research-led learning and reflective thinking. Trainees will be supported in their academic study through which they gain 70 credits towards a Masters.
