Design and Technology
This award is designed to allow graduates with an appropriate Honours degree to train at post-graduate level to become a secondary school design and technology teacher. You will leave this teacher training course with a PGCE qualification. This can be awarded at 3 levels dependent upon performance during the training year, either 30 (professional) or 60 or 90 (postgraduate) M level credits, in addition to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), the required qualification to teach in England. The course aims to develop your professional competencies in the creation and delivery of programmes in secondary education, and to develop the wider professional knowledge and skills expected of a qualified teacher. This is a 36 week course. The equivalent of 24 weeks (120 days) is spent in 2 carefully selected placement schools and 12 weeks in the university.
To apply for the course you will need a minimum 2.2 Honours degree, at least 50% in an appropriate subject. Mathematics and English GCSE grade C qualifications. You will also need to demonstrate a good understanding of the education system gained from work or placement in schools or experience of working with secondary school aged pupils. You will be required to successfully complete a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) application and be certified fit to teach. You must be ICT literate. We recommend you submit a well considered personal statement on the GTTR application form as this is a key part of the short listing process.
The blend of practical experience and university study will be evidenced by the compilation of portfolios and the production of short written academic papers.
