Secondary Education (English)
This course leads to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). Approximately 20 weeks of the course spent on placement.
Candidates must hold a 2.1 Honours degree in English-based subject; GCSE grade C or equivalent in English and mathematics; experience of observation in a mainstream state secondary school. It is a government requirement that applicants take the numeracy and literacy skills tests as part of the application process. Students must ensure they have passed them both before the start of the course. Candidates may be invited for an interview as part of the application. If invited for interview, all candidates will undertake a short literacy test. Any offer of a place on the programme is made conditional on satisfactory enhanced disclosure from the Disclosure and Barring Service and a satisfactory fitness to teach declaration. School experience is desirable, but not essential; applicants would need to demonstrate some awareness of current school practices and curricula.
Part 1: initial skills assessment; part 2: training plan; part 3: synoptic assessment; part 4: assignments subject to final assessment by external examiner.
