St Hugh’s School is a National Teaching School and the lead organisation within the Leading Learning Forward Teaching School Alliance. We have a partnership with schools across North and North East Lincolnshire schools, in all phases (primary, secondary and special) and share skills, experience, talent and capacity to help improve the learning and achievement of young people across North Lincolnshire.
Primary Education (School Direct) PGCE is a one year full-time programme based in our partnership schools. Our programmes last for one academic year (September 2019 - June 2020), during which time you will undertake high quality school placements within our Teaching School Alliance.
You will also enjoy a bespoke programme of training developed and delivered by our Alliance Schools and York St John University partners.
Our Initial Teacher Training programmes have been designed to build your confidence and subject knowledge and give you the necessary skills to become an effective classroom practitioner.
Leading Learning Forward Teaching School Alliance is looking to recruit high quality Primary Education (School Direct) PGCE candidates across our lead schools for the 2019-20 academic year.
We have 6 Primary Education (School Direct) PGCE places available to start in September 2019 in association with our HEI training provider, York St John University.
Two modules are studied at Masters Level. The first includes professional issues including child development, planning, learning teaching and assessment, behaviour management and meeting individual needs.
You will be provided with the opportunity to consider how learners from diverse cultural backgrounds can be supported within education and care settings. This aspect of education is embedded through all modules where diversity is considered in order to meet the needs of all learners in all subjects and within the Early Years.
You will study, for example, current issues pertaining to inclusion, ethnicity, English as an Additional Language (EAL), SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disability) and the way in which settings cater for children of a range of abilities. Aspects such as behaviour and classroom management, vital to the practice of the outstanding class teacher, are covered across a variety of sessions in all modules.
