How This Course Is Assessed

You will become highly reflective during your training and will be involved in regular, ongoing formative assessment of your training with your in-school mentor and external mentor. You will identify your strengths and gaps and work with your mentors to focus on developing your knowledge and skills. You will receive regular feedback on your teaching throughout the year to help you refine your practice.

During the course, you will complete two assignments which are due in December and April. Trainees undertaking QTS only are completed at Level 6 with 300 words whereas PGCE trainees are completed at Level 7 with 4500 words. On the PGCE, trainees will engage critically with a range of research and further explore the evidence base of the course. Credits gained on the PGCE can be used towards a Masters. 

Finally, at the end of training, assessment is made against the Teachers’ Standards.
