University of Sussex
Those enrolled on any initial teacher education course learn to teach within schools in East and West Sussex and Brighton and Hove. School-led teacher education is provided by experienced mentors and professional tutors and is supported by University tutors throughout the year.
A 1st- or 2nd-Class undergraduate Honours degree and normally at least 3 years' experience of work in education or a related area. We also offer an entry route via Accreditation of Prior Learning. Applicants submit a portfolio of continuing-professional-development activities conducted at work, which contributes to their 1st 30-credit course. This entry route is particularly useful for teachers who have recently completed an NQT, threshold or other professional-development portfolio. The credits can be used towards the MA, PGDip or PGCert in Education Studies.
All teachers are prepared to meet, and are regularly assessed against, a set of national professional standards, achievement of which is recognised by the award of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). In preparation for QTS, teachers prepare a portfolio of evidence of achievement, which charts progress over the academic year and includes evidence of lesson observations, engagement with professional development and self-designed teaching and learning materials. As an academic award, the PGCE also provides opportunities to acquire up to 90 Masters-level credits through assignments, including the presentation of a professional portfolio in a viva at the end of the course.
