Course summary

Overview

The course will give you the skills and confidence you need to become an effective teacher of literacy and ESOL. This course is aimed at graduates either currently in/or seeking to pursue a career in the wider education sector and it has been informed by the most recent developments in educational research and government policy. You will analyse the many changes currently affecting the further education sector and will develop your knowledge of various teaching approaches and techniques to become a skilled and reflective teacher.

This course focuses on developing your teaching skills, and not on the subject you intend to teach. For this reason, you are expected to have a good understanding of your chosen subject(s) before you start training. PGCE English Literacy and Language Specialists is a Level 7 (Masters Level) programme.

With the support from tutor module specialists from a range of sectors across the industry you will receive real life examples and industry contact including workshops and placements to help you understand the complex, ever-changing and exciting world of teaching. We pride ourselves on the personalised lessons and seminars where smaller classes enable students to have more interaction and support from tutors to help maximise potential.

Who the course is for

This course is aimed at graduates either currently in/or seeking to pursue a career in the wider education sector. This is a Level 7 (Masters Level) course validated by NCG and is mapped to professional standards for the sector. From 2007 all new entrants to teaching and training in further and adult education must meet these standards in order to apply for QTLS (Qualified Teacher Learning Skills Sector).

This course fully meets the future requirements for Initial Teacher Training for the post compulsory sector and leads to achievement of QTLS. Candidates with QTLS have parity of esteem with holders of secondary QTS. Graduates can also use credits gained to progress onto our Master’s degree in Education.
