About

The PGCE Secondary (Design and Technology) programme at Bishop Grosseteste University  prepares you to teach Design & Technology in either the 11 to 16 (with post-16 enhancement) or 14-19 age phases.

Overview

The PGCE Secondary (Design and Technology) at Bishop Grosseteste University will equip you to become an outstanding secondary school teacher. You will be encouraged to engage creatively and critically with a wide range of practices, debates, and current issues.

The BGU ITE partnership is a close working relationship between schools, colleges, and the university. Your school-based D&T mentor will provide ongoing developmental feedback and help you to practically apply your thinking and learning about Design & Technology pedagogy.

Careers & Further Study

The teaching profession has a well-structured career pathway which moves progressively from initial teacher training through to newly qualified (NQT) status to qualified teacher. Many continue to work in our partner schools, becoming mentors to our trainee teachers, pursing further study to full Masters and Doctoral level at BGU and taking on leadership roles including Headships.

Programme Structure

How you're taught:

  • This is a very practical course where you’ll spend at least two-thirds of your time in schools, mostly working with teachers and pupils, and around one third spent on your own study with training sessions in the university or locally to your school.
  • You will consider the broader aspects of teaching, contexts for learning, the latest government initiatives and contemporary issues in teaching, learning and assessment. You will also work alongside trainee teachers of other subjects to consider cross-curricular aspects of education.

Other requirements

General requirements

  • GCSEs at grade 4 (previously C) or above (or equivalent) in English Language and Mathematics.
  • A relevant honours degree at a 2:2 classification or above. (Where the degree result is to be awarded in the year of application, we will require a predicted degree classification as part of an academic reference provided on the application)
  • Declaration of Health
  • DBS (formerly the CRB) Enhanced Disclosure

Experience in a relevant setting is useful as it will help you to make sure that you are aware of the role of a teacher in the twenty-first century. The course is intensive and demanding and you need to be aware of what a career in the teaching profession entails.

We encourage you to gain some experience in schools as this is a good starting point for you to gain an interview for the Secondary PGCE.
