We believe that training to teach is best done ‘on-the-job’ in schools, so that the knowledge you gain can be immediately applied in real lessons. Therefore, on our Secondary PGCE with QTS in Music you will be based in school all of the time (5 days a week for full-time trainees and 2.5 days a week for part-time trainees). To enable this we deliver our course online, which means that you can study with us in a location of your choice in England.
Designed and delivered by the country’s leading teachers and educators, who know what it takes to successfully teach in schools today, you will be taught through a host of online mediums which are accessible 24/7, including webinars, lectures, podcasts, videos, research and discussions. Trainees tell us that our online model is a tremendous help in managing workload, as you can choose to study at times most suitable for you. As all of the course content, curriculum and materials are online, you are able to revisit them as required, which is something our trainees also really value.
In addition, and described as “excellent” by Ofsted, our tutorial system provides you with regular online teaching and support, both 1-1 with your own personal University Tutor and in a small tutor group. Tutorials deepen your understanding of the topics we cover, and prompt you to think about what works best for you in your teaching.
As you are in school each day, you will have significant time to observe colleagues in action and to practise and develop your teaching within a planned timetable of lessons, which increase in number as your skills develop. Your own in-school Mentor manages this and aligns your training in school with the topics you are studying online and with your University Tutor.
Additional advantages of training with us are:
A competitively-priced course fee of £7500.
Multiple start dates: You can start in September, January or April and choose to train on a full-time or part-time basis.
The course carries 60 Master’s credits (one third of a full Master’s degree), and you will have the option to extend your study for a further year to gain a full Master’s degree in Education (alongside any employment you may gain).
Included in your course fee are two 2-day residential face-to-face training sessions at our campus in Silverstone.
