This is an exciting partnership between the Teaching School Alliance & the UEA, where we are able to offer a full PGCE through School Direct. We have placements available based in our partnership schools which are spread throughout Norfolk. Please see schools at bottom of page.
What's the difference between a core UEA PGCE and a School Direct PGCE?
General Primary PGCE(M) at UEA information:
All students follow a general programme of professional studies as well as programmes of teaching core and non-core subjects. All students experience two main school placements in two consecutive age bands. Teaching based at the University employs a range of methods and group sizes including lectures, seminars, practical workshops and tutorials. The academic component of the course is assessed at M level and successful students will gain 60 Master’s credits. The course gives students the opportunity to develop their understanding of the principles, knowledge and skills involved in being a reflective teacher. Through both University based and school-based training, a thorough knowledge of child centred learning and how to devise a rich curriculum that is appropriate for all children will be gained. The course provides a challenging, critical introduction into how to meet the needs of young learners through principled practice.
