What does the PGCE (SCITTS) entail?

Students on the PGCE working with the University of Hull will be asked to complete two academic pieces of work each of which, if successfully completed, will gain them 60 credits at Level 7 (Master's Level). These will give then the award of a post-graduate certificate in education.

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:

Pre-Start. Prelimiary reading around general concepts of pedagogy and learning and teacher identity.
Session 1 Introduction to M level working, academic research, models of reflection.
Focus on Assignment #1 (Learning and Teaching) with links to core strategies & planning.
Session 2 Focus on Assignment #1 (Learning and Teaching) - tutorials and support
  Virtual Support and Tutorials
Session 3 Feedback / Feedforward, lessons from Assignment #1
Focus on Assignment #2 (Assessment) with with links to core strategies & planning.
