Secondary English Education with QTS at Edge Hill University - UCAS

Course summary

Course Content Prepare to teach everything from Shakespeare to the Romantic age to modernist literature as you study one of the core subjects of the national curriculum. Experience life working in schools and gain recommendation for Qualified Teacher Status when you graduate. What’s the relationship between the curriculum and children’s development? Here at Edge Hill, you won’t just develop your knowledge of English. You’ll learn to think about your role as a teacher. You’ll explore different perspectives. And evaluate the principles that underpin education today. As well as in-depth modules where you’ll study everything from Shelley to sociolinguistics, you’ll spend lots of time in schools. You’ll help with classes and see how the theory you’ve learned applies in real-life settings. Gaining inspiration from your mentors, you’ll start to develop your own teaching style and form your own ideas about the role of education. Intensive Training and Practice You will also undertake Intensive Training and Practice (ITAP) as a specific and focused element of our teacher training curriculum. This is designed to consolidate your knowledge of effective teaching, and enable you to rehearse and obtain feedback from experts on your practice. Our ITAPs are designed to utilise the latest research and technology as well as draw on the outstanding mentors, tutors, and teacher expertise from across our partnership. Over the course of your training, you will have the opportunity to participate in several days of Intensive Practice focusing on aspects of pivotal practice such as; behaviour management, scaffolding, professional behaviours and questioning. During periods of ITAP, your timetable may differ and you may be required to attend campus and/or a placement on days outside of the usual pattern. Lead Mentors The Edge Hill lead mentors and mentor leadership team play an important part in your teacher training as experts in their field. They have a deep knowledge of the trainee curriculum and support trainees and mentors to make progress providing guidance and support on aspects of the curriculum and assessment. Successful completion of the programme leads to recommendation for Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).
