Trainees will complete their PGCE with QTS at the University of Warwick Centre for Professional Education. Four days a week will be spent in the host school with the other day spent at the University of Warwick engaging in reflective practice, preparation for Masters level research and developing professional understanding. Subject knowledge development will be developed through school based practice and University support. All trainees will also complete a second placement at a complementary school. Successful completion of Masters Assignments will give candidates 90 CATS towards an MA in Educational Innovation.

Entry Requirements (in-line with the University of Warwick requirements)

DfE Professional Skills tests in literacy and numeracy will also need to be completed before the course commences. We recommend that candidates consider completing the Skills Tests as close to application as possible.

We expect candidates to have had some experience of mainstream UK schools to become familiar with the atmosphere and demands of the age phase they are applying for.
