As a provider we are accredited to award QTS (Qualified Teacher Status), therefore we work with The University of Hull to give you the opportunity to complete an optional PGCE (Post Graduate Certificate in Education) qualification whilst you train with us.
By completing the PGCE alongside your QTS and studying at masters level, this gives you the opportunity to study education theory in more depth, therefore impacting positively on your classroom practice. The PGCE option runs concurrently with the QTS programme; they are aligned and synchronised for the benefit of our trainees.
All training takes place in Lincoln and you do not need to travel to Hull for these training sessions; all lecturers travel to our training locations.
You will be fully supported by The University of Hull staff and have access to their resources.
As the PGCE is Level 7 (masters level) trainees are expected to undertake an independent research approach, being proactive and motivated throughout their studies. The University of Hull will provide inputs to support assignments, and trainees will have access to a wealth of online resources, support networks and journals for independent study.
If you complete the QTS only course, you will submit one 5,000 word assignment to EoETT. If you choose to complete the QTS and PGCE course you will instead be expected to write two 5,000 word assignments, which will be submitted to The University of Hull.
Do I have to travel to Hull?
No - all training takes place in Lincoln and you do not need to travel to Hull for these training sessions; all lecturers travel to our training locations.
Do I just need to complete 1 extra assignment for the PGCE?
Yes, if you choose to complete the QTS and PGCE course you will be expected to write two 5,000 word assignments, instead of one for the QTS only course. These are marked at Level 7 (Masters).
Why would I need a PGCE?
A PGCE qualification is essential if you wish to teach abroad, as QTS is only recognised in England and Wales.
You will also gain enough credits for a third of a Masters, so if you want to complete a full Masters in the future this is a cost effective way to gain the credits.
The research completed during your PGCE will ensure you have a deeper understanding of aspects that will benefit you in the classroom
