The course aims to:
Participants who complete successfully all the requisite components of this programme will demonstrate:
The course focuses, during the early stages, on the acquisition of a repertoire of basic classroom management competencies to develop the confidence of trainees to work with pupils inside and outside the classroom. There is progressive introduction both to theoretical ideas that underpin professional practice and to the various dimensions of the professional debate. Trainees receive extended and focused support and tuition in their specialised subject
These sessions provide the knowledge base for trainees and address ethical issues. Theory based studies include the following: lectures, discussions, activities, seminars, discussions with professionals, assignments and tasks to ensure the link between theory, subject knowledge and/or pedagogy and school based study. Assignments require trainees to undertake subject related reading. Some of these sessions take place in schools to enable trainees to work with the pupils. One example is at our special school, where theory is linked immediately to working with the pupils.
This method of teaching and learning enables trainees to test their knowledge and skills within the school setting. These skills are developed throughout the course by the following: observations of good practice, school training, teaching, observations and feedback from school based and professional tutors, school based tasks and discussions with professional colleagues.
Trainees are actively encouraged to undertake personal study. Skills addressed include self-evaluations, working within a group and autonomy. Trainees write a Reflective Journal to develop those skills of critical reflection an attribute towards the making of an outstanding teacher. Trainees develop their own knowledge through reading and research for assignments.
By the effective combination of learning, practice and reflection, it is our aim that, by the end of the course, trainees become proficient and reflective classroom practitioners. They will have the confidence to start their teaching careers with a firm foundation for future development.
