Cornwall School Centred Initial Teacher Training offers an outstanding training partnership of 16 local secondary schools, a special school, pupil referral units and a tertiary college offering training for the 11-16 age range with post 16 enhancements and training for the 14-19 age range with additional Key Stage 3 experience for selected subjects.
Our comprehensive programmes are delivered by committed, expereinced and supportive staff and offer opportunties to develop your subject knowledge and learn the skills you need to teach effectively, from the basics of structuring and planning lessons through to developing personal skills and confidence in front of a class.
A distinctive feature of this school-led training is that the course is focused on carefully staged and appropriately supervised practical classroom experience within at least two partener institutions, which is further supported by academic study via central training.
This course is full time for one academic year (September to July) and on successful completion you are awarded Qualified Teacher Status together with a PGCE validated by the University of Cumbria. www.cumbria.ac.uk
To reflect national changes to academic qualifications across all universities in the UK, the PGCE qualification, formerly called the Postgraduate Certificate in Education, changed in September 2007 to the Professional Graduate Certificate in Education – or PGCE!
Cornwall SCITT is offering the POST GRADUATE CERTIFICATE IN EDUCATION at Level 7 with 60 Masters credits and the PROFESSIONAL GRADUATE CERTIFICATE IN EDUCATION at Level 6.
