Course summary

This programme will help students develop the skills needed to teach their own subject in the post 16 sector. Through taught sessions and mentored teaching practice in the workplace you will learn about employment in the sector, how to plan lessons in your subject, how to teach, engage and assess learners, how to manage the learning environment, and how to understand and use theory and research to broaden and improve your professional knowledge and expertise in teaching.

Careers

Graduates of this programme are currently working for a diverse range of employers. They typically gain employment as lecturers, classroom teachers and/or managers in FE colleges, sixth form colleges, independent training providers, adult education services and prisons. The programme can also serve as route towards higher level qualifications.

Employability

As well as learning improved subject-specialist knowledge and expertise in pedagogy and assessment, you will gain a wide range of highly transferable ‘people skills’ which are essential for teachers: including empathy, patience, listening, cultural awareness and sensitivity. Through your teaching practice placement, you will also gain awareness of aspects of workplace life and the norms of professional behaviour, around respect for others, equality and diversity, health and safety, rights at work, line-management and appraisal, inspection and quality assurance procedures, etc.

Accreditation

The programme leads to an award of a PGCE (post-compulsory) at level 7 (Master’s level). Following successful completion of the programme, students may apply through the Society for Educational and Training for the QTLS licence to practice in the sector. NB: QTLS is not part of the IOE programme.
