Education

A masters is earned after students complete an undergraduate degree program. To obtain a masters, you usually need to complete 12 to 18 college courses that often involve completing comprehensive tests and/or a thesis.

Although some education can be very informal, most mainstream education happens in a more formalized setting. This sort of education is typically divided into various stages, which include preschool, kindergarten, middle school, and high school. Higher education includes college, post graduate programs, masters degrees, and doctorates.

 

Education in the United Kingdom is a devolved matter with each of the countries of the United Kingdom having separate systems under different governments: the UK Government is responsible for England, and the Scottish Government, the Welsh Government and the Northern Ireland Executive are responsible for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, respectively.

PGCE

University of Winchester
Campus 1 - 2  September 2017 United Kingdom Winchester

Established in 1840 as a teacher training college, the University of Winchester has built on this history with high quality and innovative teacher education programmes. This PGCE Primary programme trains students to teach in the 5-11 age range. The programme experience is intensive yet intellectually stimulating - it involves high levels of active participation and personal and professional commitment, enabling the development of thoughtful and high quality entrants to the teaching profession. The PGCE Primary is a postgraduate professional programme of Initial Teacher Training (ITT) leading to the award of either Postgraduate Certificate in Education (with Masters level credits) or Professional Graduate Certificate in Education, both including the recommendation of the award of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). The programme is organised around six modules and includes school experience placements. [+]

The PGCE Primary prepares students to teach across the age ranges of 5-11 (full-time or part-time route). Students undertake studies in all elements of primary education; they extend their knowledge of learning and teaching, of the breadth and scope of the curriculum and the professional skills associated with high quality teaching. These areas of understanding and skill are then applied to classroom practice during two school experience placements. Full-time study is arranged to be consistent with the primary school year and starts with a pre-programme 15 days in school/s arranged by the student. Students are provided with a handbook to guide these pre-programme observations and activities. The part-time route involves a substantial amount of blended/e-learning, for which access to a home computer and the Internet is essential. Students arrange an additional 22 self-directed days in school during their programme. Please note, although part-time students undertake the taught elements on a part-time basis, school placements are usually undertaken on a full-time basis. Teaching placements are predominantly in Hampshire primary schools, but this geographical area often extends to Dorset, Wiltshire, Berkshire and Surrey. Students also have the opportunity to take one of their placements in East London or the Isle of Wight. Students with suitable pre-programme experience may take one placement in a Special Educational Needs (SEN) setting. All students are allocated a personal tutor to support them in their progress through the programme. Progress is tracked both academically and in terms of the Teachers' Standards (Department for Education 2012), which are... [-]
