As a partnership we have ensured that our student teachers have the best possible foundations to become outstanding teachers. The key philosophy behind our programme is its flexibility for students to study general Primary (mainstream), SEND or both.
You will be allocated at least two placements in contrasting schools where you will have expert support from one of our Lead Mentors in addition to your day-to-day expert classroom support.
In the second phase of training, there is an exciting opportunity to spend a period of time in one of our European placement partners.
From the beginning, you will work alongside experts in centre-based training to develop your understanding of the National Curriculum, professional practices and pedagogy. Your placements will give you opportunity to apply this knowledge and understand how to utilise the most current research to classroom practice to improve outcomes for pupils.
At Tor View, you will be working towards your PGCE modules of Building Professional Understanding and High Quality Learning & Teaching with a Senior Lecturer from the University of Cumbria. You will have an assignment to submit for each module in order to complete the course.
In addition, you will receive centre-based training in English, Maths, Science, and all of the Foundation subjects. Our close partnerships with SEN experts means you will also undertake additional specialist training in SEND. These fall broadly into Mainstream/SEN categories, although you are encouraged to select options which appeal, irrespective of which of our programmes you have chosen.
