Course summary

COURSE OVERVIEW

Welcome to the Swansea University Schools’ Partnership (SUSP/PYPA), an innovative collaboration of school and university-based staff working together to ensure that ‘Tomorrow’s Teachers’ have the skills and experience to make a difference to pupils in Wales.

Well-qualified English teachers are in high demand across the UK. SUSP has developed an innovative Secondary English PGCE programme that is designed to provide new entrants to the teaching profession with confidence in their subject knowledge and in their understanding of how to teach it. This programme will prepare you to make a positive contribution to the learning communities you will be joining. SUSP’s Secondary English PGCE programme is underpinned by regional, national and international research. You will learn how to make English meaningful, interesting and fun and also how to analyse your own and your pupils’ development.

SUSP’s integrated and rigorous PGCE programme will challenge you academically and professionally. The PGCE English programme aims to develop critical understanding of the nature of English and its position in the school curriculum. You will be encouraged to research and test your own approaches to English pedagogy to find those techniques that work best for you and for the pupils you teach. SUSP is committed to developing research-informed reflective practitioners who can demonstrate creativity and flexibility in their teaching so that learners develop their subject competence in an environment that cultivates enjoyment.

PGCE EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES

Successful completion of the SUSP PGCE will lead to recommendation to the Education Workforce Council for Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and provides opportunities for employment as a Newly Qualified Teacher (NQT) in schools.

Our career support services include:

  • Employability workshops, employers’ talks, bespoke events and careers fairs
  • Individual advice and guidance from professionally qualified Careers Advisers
  • Help with finding jobs, internships, work placements and volunteering opportunities
  • Access to information resources on a wide range of career management topics
