  • Trainees on the undergraduate route will be assessed at Level 3 in keeping with their progression to date and on successful completion will be awarded the BA(Hons) SD&TE .   All postgraduates will be registered on the M Level PGDE in order to instill the highest expectations and aspirations through the year. At module assessment points trainees ’ work will be assessed at both Level 3 and M Level. Trainees who miss out on achieving at M Level will then have the opportunity to re-submit at M Level or Level 3. Those trainees who gain 120 credit points at M Level (i.e. all modules at M Level) will be awarded the PGDE . Those trainees who gain 80 credit points at M Level and 40 credit points at Level 3 (i.e. who gain the Secondary Education Independent Study module and either the Learning and Teaching in the Subject or Learning and Teaching in the Wider Context modules at M Level) or who gain 60 credit points at M Level and 60 credit points at Level 3 (i.e, who gain just the Secondary Education Independent Study module or the Learning and Teaching in the Subject, Learning and Teaching in the Wider Context and Skills of Enquiry modules at M Level) will be awarded the PGCE . Those trainees who gain 20 credit points at M level and 100 credit points at Level 3 (i.e. who gain either the Learning and Teaching in the Subject or the Learning and Teaching in the Wider Context module at M Level) or who gain 120 credit points at Level 3 (i.e. no modules at M Level) will be awarded the ProfGCE .   Trainees can elect to exit before completing the full qualification. Exit awards have been designed for trainees who, for whatever reason, need to end their studies and still wish to claim an academic award. Trainees can, however, choose to transfer any credit points gained to another university and continue their study at the new institution.
  • This is found in the appendices of the PDR. Links to Section 6 of PGCE/BA Course Guide *The timing of observations is a suggestion only and may vary depending on mentor/tutor availability. Joint observations are encouraged. **Placement reports are written by the Professional Tutor on their first visit of each placement. Progress reports are written by the ITE Co-ordinator as a result of three-way meetings that involve the trainee, Subject Mentor and Professional Tutor. Since they undertake an observation visit in week 38 (beginning 15/04/13) the Professional Tutor is likely to feed into the three-way meeting rather than being present in person. The Transition to Teaching/Summative Report is written by the Professional Tutor at the end of the course.
