What does the PGCE entail?

Students on the PGCE working with the University of Hull will be asked to complete three academic pieces of work each of which, if successfully completed, will gain them 20 credits at Level 7 (Master's Level). These will give then the award of a post-graduate certificate in education (PGCE).

The delivery of the course is via a number of face-to-face sessions the exact nature of which will depend on negotiations between the link academic tutor and the SCITT but which will have the following structure:

Session 1 Introduction to M level working, general concepts of pedagogy and learning, academic research and assignment overview
Session 2 Models of reflection - focus on Assignment #1 with links to core strategies and academic underpinning
Session 3 Teaching and Learning - focus on Assignment #2 with links to core strategies and academic underpinning
Session 4 Assessment - focus on Assignment #1 with links to core strategies and academic underpinning

The Assignments for the Primary PGCE award

  • A1: What is reflection and how does it impact on teaching and learning - through looking at an SEND or BM incident
  • A2: Reflecting on the impact on teaching and learning a sequence of lessons in either English or Mathematics
  • A3: Considering the nature of assessment in either English or Mathematics (other focus to A2)
