Manchester Metropolitan University
Our PGCE Religious Education offers an exciting and demanding curriculum area where pupils reflect on their own beliefs and values and develop critical thinking skills to enable positive action in their communities. Trainees will encounter cultural diversity through visits to places of worship from the six major religions in Manchester and engage in dialogue with people from other faiths and cultural backgrounds. There is an emphasis on both practical and theoretical teaching skills. Trainees gain 60 Masters Level credits (1/3 of a Masters Degree) which can be used for progression to higher academic and professional awards. Applicants have the choice of university-based or school direct routes.
Applicants require a relevant undergraduate honours degree (in theology, religious studies or equivalent) normally at 2.1 or above, or equivalent; at least 2 weeks of experience in relevant school setting(s); GCSE English language and mathematics grades C or above; a pass in the Professional Skills tests in numeracy and literacy; a Disclosure and Barring Service check and a DfE Fitness to Teach test.
Core units: practice credit 1 (induction phase); practice credit 2 (teaching placement block a: formation of personal practice); practice credit 3 (teaching placement block b: development of personal practice); practice credit 4 (enrichment phase); professional practice; subject pedagogy (religious education).
There are 2 elements of assessment: teaching, incorporating school experience files, that capture evidence of the range of your experiences, this element will be assessed by mentors and judged against the Standards for Qualified Teacher Status; written assignments, this element builds on the teaching experience and integrates theory with practice and observation. In addition, there are several course completion requirements: the record of professional development (a portfolio of evidence of personal and professional development); the career entry profile (completed at the point of becoming a newly qualified teacher and taken with students into their 1st post); satisfactory attendance and professional engagement with the course requirements.
