Course summary

The post primary PGCE is a one year, full-time programme that prepares students for a career in teaching English, Drama and Media Studies. The aim of a PGCE is to prepare the student to become a competent teacher. This is achieved through a variety of teaching and learning methods which are summarised below: Lectures: Tutorials: group or individually designed to advise in the preparation for school experience, curriculum projects and/or school based investigations. Practicals: involving simulations, role-play, practical activities and school experience. Workshops: designed primarily to allow students to examine the relationship between theoretical perspectives introduced in lectures and their main subject specialism. The course prepares the student to teach their chosen subject in a post-primary school or college. Successful completion of this course qualifies the graduate to seek registration with the General Teaching Council of Northern Ireland.
