School Direct (unsalaried) UEA Full PGCE
This is an exciting new partnership between St Michael’s VA Junior School and Clover Hill VA Infant and Nursery School & the UEA, where we are able to offer a full PGCE through School Direct. We have additional placements available based in our local partnership schools which are all close to the University.
What’s the difference between a core UEA PGCE and a School Direct PGCE?
- Same Qualification
- Same time / lectures at the UEA
- School Direct has no paired placement
- School Direct trainees spend longer in one school allowing deeper relationships to develop
- With School Direct you know your school and mentor before the course begins
- Further professional development in the Lead School (to include P.E., RE, Computing, Maths & Special Needs)
General Primary PGCE(M) at UEA information:
All students follow a general programme of professional studies as well as programmes of teaching core and non-core subjects. All students experience two main school placements in two consecutive age bands. Teaching based at the University employs a range of methods and group sizes including lectures, seminars, practical workshops and tutorials. The academic component of the course is assessed at M level and successful students will gain 60 Master’s credits. The course gives students the opportunity to develop their understanding of the principles, knowledge and skills involved in being a reflective teacher. Through both University based and school-based training, a thorough knowledge of child centred learning and how to devise a rich curriculum that is appropriate for all children will be gained. The course provides a challenging, critical introduction into how to meet the needs of young learners through principled practice.
