Teaching and assessment
for Primary Education PGDE
We provide you with short recorded online tutorials, followed up with more hands-on workshops. This gives you a rich learning experience and also means you can access materials online whenever it suits you most, including when you are on placements. You will also learn through group tutorials, peer learning, individual study and placements.
The two on-campus modules last for approximately 15 weeks in total, spread out across the academic year. The three school placements last for six weeks each. You start with time on-campus, followed by two study weeks and then your first placement. This format of campus time then placement is repeated twice more.
Each campus-based module is assessed by a written assignment.
Each of your three professional practice placements are assessed by both University staff and school partners, based on your performance throughout the placement and tutor observation.
We're testing a new way of showing modules on the website
This list should give you a good idea of which modules you can take, however it may change before you begin your course, and may not show all available modules.
These modules are an essential part of your course.
