4 8 Teaching and Learning Methods A range of teaching and learning approaches are adopted on the course in order to model a variety of strategies that you might use in your own teaching. These include 1:1 and group work, presentations, direct teaching, use of technology, individual research tasks and discussion. Group work is used throughout the year to encourage the development of skills for successfully working with or collaborating with peers; it will also allow you to gain experience and confidence in presenting yourself. Tutors utilise recommended texts within the taught sessions so that you are able to engage with the texts and use them to support your own theoretical knowledge. Tutors and peers experiences, as well as your own, are drawn on during the sessions to ensure that the teaching is relevant and relatable. A seminar or conference is to be arranged as part of Module 4 at which you will present your Independent Study findings in an appropriate academic environment; this is used successfully on other courses. 9 Assessment Methods The course has a wide variety of assessment methods available; this demonstrates good practice and ensures that there is an inclusive approach to the course. Methods include written assignments, oral or visual presentations and critical self-reflection. You will have some element of choice in the formats that you use in the first and third modules. You will be required to provide and use peer feedback in the microteaches (Module 1) and poster presentations (Module 4) and this promotes good team working and collaborative skills. It will also enhance your capacity to give and receive feedback effectively which is a crucial attribute when working in Education. You will receive both formative and summative feedback whilst studying on the course from both tutors and your peers and you will be encouraged to use this feedback to improve your skills through the use of action planning. 10 Course structure and curriculum The course is structured to include both taught sessions and independent study with tutor support in the form of individual and group tutorials. Module 1: Learning and Teaching: in PCET 40 credit points This module embeds PTLLS and CTLLS and focuses on developing a basic range of learning, teaching and assessment strategies to prepare you for your placement. The content includes managing behaviour, learning about learners and policies and

5 procedures that underpin teaching roles. You will deliver a short teaching session (microteach) to peers and evaluate it; this provides you with confidence, new skills and specific areas to work on when you go in to your teaching placement; Module 2: Learning and Teaching: the professional teacher 20 credit points In this module, more theory is introduced to allow you to develop and understanding of how theory and practice are linked. You will also explore ways in which you can support your learners in developing their literacy, numeracy and ICT skills whilst on your course. This allows you to build on what you learned in Module 1 and extend the range and effectiveness of your skills in developing as a teacher. This module introduces the idea of good practice which is drawn from a range of theoretical perspectives; Module 3: Learning and Teaching: the subject specialist and wider context 20 credit points This module builds on Module 2 and explores your subject and subject courses in depth. You will learn what constitutes subject pedagogy and will carry out a case study investigation to support your understanding of curriculum design and development. There will be an Interviews and Applications session in this module to support you in looking forward to the end of the course and employment. Your experiences through this module will enhance your employability, including the opportunity to model the use of technology and develop an e-portfolio; Module 4: PCET: Independent Study 40 credits This module builds on your experience in the personal professional development and subject specialist development modules to enable you to investigate and explore a particular issue of interest. Your investigation will allow you to make recommendations to improve learner engagement, participation, achievement or inclusion in support of your own practice. You will be given the opportunity to share the findings of your investigation by presenting them to your peers, which meets our aim to foster the development of a community of practice within the module, so creating a broader awareness of educational issues and practice. In relation to practical teaching, you are required to complete a minimum of 150 teaching hours over the duration of the year, as required by the national approvals body for the course. You will have 8 teaching observations carried out by your personal tutor or your mentor. Whilst we have an expectation that students will complete the course, provision has been made where this may not be possible (Appendix Nine).

6 11 Admission to the course For current information regarding all entry requirements for this course, please see the `Applying tab on the course information web page. 12 Support for Learning From enquiry to enrolment you will be supported and advised by the experienced Course Administrator and Course Leader. They will be able to offer help and advice on options, attendance, facilities and fees, as well as study skills and support. The Course Leader will have overall responsibility for you throughout the course and will discuss any concerns you may have and be a source of referral to University support mechanisms if required. All of the teaching staff involved in the delivery of the course are experienced in Post Compulsory Education and Training and also involved in the delivery of other courses offered within the school, for example the Masters in Education Courses. Module tutors will support and guide your learning; they will negotiate your assignment areas with you and arrange tutorial support and will access your work. All students belong to a tutor group and have a Personal Tutor who is their first point of contact for any enquiries, support and advice. The role of the tutor is to: Mark assignments and give feedback; observe your teaching up to three times during the course of the year; hold tutorials to support your professional practice and course requirements; liaise with your subject specialist mentors in your placement. The subject specialist mentor is part of the subject team in placement and is the person who will support your development as a subject specialist, in relation to subject knowledge and understanding and also the teaching and assessment practices adopted (subject pedagogy). In addition, the mentor role involves: observing your professional practice on up to six occasions in the year; providing verbal and written constructive feedback on these observations with clear areas for improvement; providing ongoing feedback and advice that will support you in improving your professional practice and developing as a teacher and a subject specialist. The School of Education has excellent physical resources to support your learning and enhance your experience on the course and at the university. You will have access to the university s virtual learning environment (VLE) which holds course information and links, as well as learning materials. You will also have remote access to the university library so that you can use electronic books and journals from home. These create a flexible resource which allows you the opportunity to arrange

7 your study to suit your professional and domestic commitments. Student Support Services are able to provide you full range of specialist and professional services including counselling and financial advice should the need arise. Where additional support is required with academic work, the School of Education provides Academic Peer Mentors and skills workshops which you can choose to access if you are in this position. 13 Graduate destinations/ employability Over several years, the PCET courses have had a consistently good record in relation to positive progression and employability for students. Ofsted (May 2012) identified this as a key strength of the provision: the good outcomes for trainees, including their progression into higher education, further career development and employment. Students who achieve the Certificate in Education are able to top up their award to full graduate status at NTU through obtaining a Professional Diploma in Education Studies and then the BA (Hons) Education, which would take an additional two years in total. Some students progress to one of NTU s CPD courses and many find teaching work on leaving the course, not only in colleges of further education but also, increasingly, in schools. 14 Course standards and quality The Course fully adheres to NTU s quality assurance procedures. You will receive detailed feedback on your written assessments, highlighting areas of strength and development. Each Module leader will evaluate the module at the end of its duration and you will be encouraged to feedback on the delivery and content of the each module you study. This will then be used to inform the Course Standards and Quality Report which the Course Leader produces at the end of each academic year. Quality Assurance and Improvement specific to these PCET courses include Ofsted and annual reporting through a Self-Evaluation Document (SED). Actions from this contribute to the School quality assurance cycle. The Course has a specialist External Examiner who supports the course team and attends the final Board of Examiners; the External is also given the opportunity to see a sample of students work and take part in a joint observation of students teaching.

8 You will be given the opportunity to volunteer as a Student Representative for the Course; if selected you will represent the students on your course/in your group on the Course Committee that meets twice a year. This is a formal meeting with the Course Team to which the representative can bring feedback from the students; this is part of quality improvement and the Course Team will respond to feedback. Student Representatives are also given the opportunity to represent the course at School of Education Student Forums. 15 Assessment regulations This course is subject to the University s Common Assessment Regulations (located in its Academic Standards and Quality Handbook).

Undertake structured and appropriate investigation of the educational process and issues in Mathematics and Numeracy or English and Literacy, which allow you to perform your developing role successfully 8. Teaching and learning methods A range of teaching and learning approaches are adopted on the course in order to model a variety of strategies that you might use in your own teaching. These include 1:1 and group work, presentations, direct teaching, use of technology, individual research tasks and discussion. Group work is used throughout the year to encourage the development of skills for successfully working with or collaborating with peers; it will also allow you to gain experience and confidence in presenting yourself. Teaching for the Subject Pathways (Mathematics/Numeracy or English/Literacy) will be

18 delivered by an appropriate subject specialist Tutors utilise recommended texts within the taught sessions so that you are able to engage with the texts and use them to support your own theoretical knowledge. Tutors and peers experiences, as well as your own, are drawn on during the sessions to ensure that the teaching is relevant and relatable. A seminar or conference is to be arranged as part of Module 4 at which you will present your Independent Study findings in an appropriate academic environment; this is used successfully on other courses. 9. Assessment methods The course has a wide variety of assessment methods available; this demonstrates good practice and ensures that there is an inclusive approach to the course. Methods include written assignments, oral or visual presentations and critical self-reflection. You will have some element of choice in the formats that you use in the first and third modules. You will be required to provide and use peer feedback in the microteaches (Module 1) and poster presentations (Module 4) and this promotes good team working and collaborative skills. It will also enhance your capacity to give and receive feedback effectively which is a crucial attribute when working in Education. You will receive both formative and summative feedback whilst studying on the course from both tutors and your peers and you will be encouraged to use this feedback to improve your skills through the use of action planning. For observations of your practical teaching, all feedback is formative to support further development but tutor feedback does confirm that you have passed the practical element of the course, and so is also summative. 10. Course structure and curriculum The course is structured to include both taught sessions and independent study with tutor support in the form of individual and group tutorials. Module 1: Learning and Teaching: in PCET 40 credit points This module focuses on developing a basic range of learning, teaching and assessment strategies to prepare you for your placement. The content includes managing behaviour, learning about learners and policies and procedures that underpin teaching roles. You will deliver a short teaching session (microteach) to peers and evaluate it; this provides you with confidence, new skills and specific areas to work on when you go in to your teaching placement; Module 2: Learning and Teaching: the professional Mathematics and Numeracy teacher or the professional English and Literacy teacher 20 credit points In this module, further generic theory is explored and theory relating to your subject pathway is introduced, to allow you to develop an understanding of how theory and practice are linked. You will also identify ways in which you can support your learners in developing their literacy, numeracy and ICT skills whilst studying on your course. This allows you to build on what you learned in Module 1 and extend the range and effectiveness of your skills in developing as a subject teacher. This module introduces the idea of good practice which is drawn from a range of theoretical perspectives;

19 Module 3: Learning and Teaching: the Mathematics and Numeracy specialist or the English and Literacy specialist 20 credit points This module builds on Module 2 and explores your subject and curricula in depth. You will learn what constitutes subject pedagogy and will have the opportunity to review and reflect on your own development as a subject teacher. There will be an Interviews and Applications session in this module to support you in looking forward to the end of the course and employment. Your experiences through this module will enhance your employability, including the opportunity to model the use of technology and develop an e- portfolio; Module 4: PCET Education: Independent Study 40 credits This module builds on your experience in the personal professional development and subject specialist development modules to enable you to investigate and explore a particular issue of interest. Your investigation will allow you to make recommendations to improve learner engagement, participation, achievement or inclusion in support of your own practice. You will be given the opportunity to share the findings of your investigation by presenting them to your peers, which meets our aim to foster the development of a community of practice within the module, so creating a broader awareness of educational issues and practice. In relation to practical teaching, you are required to complete a minimum of 150 teaching hours over the duration of one year (full time course) or two years (part time course) and you will have 8 teaching observations. At least 50% of your teaching hours must be carried out in a context appropriate to your subject pathway and at least 4 of your 8 observations will be carried out by a subject specialist; the rest are usually carried out be your personal tutor. You must pass the practical element of the course to pass the course. Whilst we have an expectation that students will complete the course, provision has been made where this may not be possible (see Subject Pathway Course Structure Flowchart). The course meets the requirements of the Education and Training Foundation, the national oversight body for the sector. 11. Admission to the course For current information regarding all entry requirements for this course, please see the `Applying tab on the course information web page. 12. Support for learning From enquiry to enrolment you will be supported and advised by the experienced Central Admissions, Course Administrator and Course Leader. They will be able to offer help and advice on options, attendance, facilities and fees, as well as study skills and support. The Course Leader will have overall responsibility for you throughout the course and will discuss any concerns you may have and be a source of referral to University support mechanisms if required. All of the teaching staff involved in the delivery of the course are experienced

20 in adult learning and the post compulsory sector, and also involved in the delivery of other courses offered within the school, for example the Masters in Education Courses. Module tutors will support and guide your learning; they will negotiate your assignment areas with you and arrange tutorial support and will access your work. All students belong to a tutor group and have a Personal Tutor who is their first point of contact for any enquiries, support and advice. The role of the tutor is to: mark assignments and give feedback; observe your teaching up to three times in a year; hold tutorials to support your professional practice and course requirements; liaise with your subject specialist mentors in your placement. The subject specialist mentor is part of the subject team in placement and will support your development as a subject specialist, in relation to subject knowledge and understanding and also the teaching and assessment practices adopted (subject pedagogy). In addition, the mentor role involves: observing your professional practice on up to six occasions in the year (full time course) or twice in each year (part time course); providing verbal and written constructive feedback on these observations with clear areas for improvement; providing ongoing feedback and advice that will support you in improving your professional practice and developing as a teacher and a subject specialist. You must pass the practical element of the course to pass the course. The School of Education has excellent physical resources to support your learning and enhance your experience on the course and at the university. You will have access to the university s virtual learning environment (VLE) which holds course information and links, as well as learning materials. You will also have remote access to the university library so that you can use electronic books and journals from home. These create a flexible resource which allows you the opportunity to arrange your study to suit your professional and domestic commitments. Student Support Services are able to provide you full range of specialist and professional services including counselling and financial advice should the need arise. Where additional support is required with academic work, the School of Education provides Academic Peer Mentors and skills workshops which you can choose to access if you are in this position. 13. Graduate destinations / employability Over several years, the PCET (previously LLS) courses have had a consistently good record in relation to positive progression and employability for students. Ofsted (May 2012) identified this as a key strength of the provision: the good outcomes for trainees, including their progression into higher education, further career development and employment. Students completing the CertEd may undertake the Professional Diploma in Education Studies before going on to the BA (Hons) Education final year; others may take one of NTU s CPD courses. Many find teaching work on leaving the course, not only in colleges of further education but also, increasingly, in schools and academies. Previous students have also been able to take this qualification and teach abroad.

21 Students already employed in a teaching position have found their promotion prospects have been enhanced following achievement of their award. 14. Course standards and quality The Course fully adheres to NTU s quality assurance procedures. You will receive detailed feedback on your written assessments, highlighting areas of strength and development. Each Module leader will evaluate the module at the end of its duration and you will be encouraged to feedback on the delivery and content of the each module you study. This will then be used to inform the Course Standards and Quality Report which the Course Leader produces at the end of each academic year. Quality Assurance and Improvement specific to these PCET courses include Ofsted and annual reporting through a Self-Evaluation Document (SED). Actions from this contribute to the School quality assurance cycle. The Course has a specialist External Examiner who supports the course team and attends the final Board of Examiners; the External is also given the opportunity to see a sample of students work and take part in a joint observation of students teaching. You will be given the opportunity to volunteer as a Student Representative for the Course; if selected you will represent the students on your course/in your group on the Course Committee that meets twice a year. This is a formal meeting with the Course Team to which the representative can bring feedback from the students; this is part of quality improvement and the Course Team will respond to feedback. Student Representatives are also given the opportunity to represent the course at School of Education Student Forums. 15. Assessment regulations This course is subject to the University s Common Assessment Regulations (located in Section 16 of the Quality Handbook). Any course specific assessment features are described below: The Course adheres to the School of Education Common Assessment Regulations for HE Level 2 Awards, which is available on request. 16.
