Module 1-3
Modules include an introduction to teaching and learning with a focus on planning and delivering effective learning. Module 2 looks at Assessment methods and strategies that can be employed flexibly to support individual students and module 3 explores theory and its application to practice.
Module 4-6
These modules are an extension of module 1-3 and aims to develop teaching skills and knowledge. The focus is on the profession as a whole, rather than the individual. Prospective students must have passed module 3. The successful completion of module 4-6 will enable students to achieve the DET award (Diploma in Education and Training level 5) or Professional Graduate Certificate in Education and Training (ProfGCE level 6).
Students will be assessed by reflections, assignments, a Micro Teach, lesson observations by tutors and mentors, peer observations, lesson plans and schemes of work, evaluation of overall teaching, presentations, essays, group work and a Progress Log. All students are required to achieve Module 1 to progress to Modules 2 and 3 to progress to module 4. Assignments and tasks are assessed using the module learning outcomes and level 4 academic standards. All observations will be assessed against the teaching standards. Students following the ProfGCE route will undertake extended assignments.
DET students' work is assessed against the module learning outcomes and academic standards level 5. ProfGCE work is assessed against the module learning outcomes and the academic standards level 6.
