Our School Direct PGCE Primary courses lead to QTS. Delivered in conjunction with Leeds Trinity University and the Yorkshire Special Education Partnership, these professionally-oriented programmes will enable you to engage with a wide range of educational issues. Our School Direct Primary PGCE is designed to develop teaching and learning through a comprehensive professional development programme, subject knowledge enhancement, and a university-led professional studies course.
Chellow Heights is the Lead school, working in partnership with Delius, High Park, Beckfoot Phoenix, Southfield, Beechcliffe and Hazelbeck. We are also working with an increasing numbers of mainstream schools.
The Leeds Trinity PGCE Primary (Early Years 3-7) QTS course is a professionally-oriented programme that enables you to engage with a wide range of educational issues. It is designed to develop the teaching and learning role through reflective practice.
The course leads to a Professional Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE with QTS, Level 6) and provides the option to achieve Masters Credits and a Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE with QTS, Level 7). At the end of the programme there is a further opportunity to gain additional Masters credits as part of continued professional development.
The course is organised into three stages which will gradually take you from the beginnings of planning and teaching to being a competent and confident, professional, reflective practitioner.
Stage 1: Planning, teaching and assessment in a mainstream Key stage 1 and EYFS school setting from September to January.
Stage 2: Individual learning needs and broadening teaching strategies in a special school setting from January to June.
Stage 3: Professionalism and Induction continued in the same special school setting.
