REGULATION INFORMATION

Does the Programme have any approved exemptions from the University General Regulations
(Please see General Regulations)

The Level 6 provision (School Experience module) is an approved exemption from the General Regulations to reflect accepted practice within the sector. School experience cannot be assessed at master’s level – it is a practical module.

Programme Specific Regulations

One academic year. The course extends over 38 weeks, 21 of which are spent on ‘School Placement’.
Full time blended learning:
Two sessions for the Education Studies and International Perspectives and two sessions for the Professional Studies/Main Subject Methods (choice modules – all registered on primary pathway must do Professional Studies and all registered on post-primary pathway must do Main Subject Methods) will be delivered face-to-face in Malaysia. The remainder of these modules will be delivered online through QOL.
An introduction to the School Experience module will also be delivered face-to-face in Malaysia. The remainder of this module will be overseen and assessed in Tenby schools in Malaysia (one of the three partner organisations).
It is important to note that candidates must show competence in practical teaching before being awarded the PGCEi. Where candidates fail in practical teaching, arrangements may be agreed which allow the candidates to be re-assessed after further practice. In line with university regulations and given that a School Experience placement lasts for 11 weeks, it is accepted that it this will not be possible to arrange before the end of the academic year.

It is important to note that successful students will not be awarded Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) in the UK.

Students with protected characteristics

Given that the School Experience module will be hosted by The Tenby Schools Group, this aspect of provision was included in the site report submitted to the Collaborative Provision Group, which states:
“Disability support: All the candidates for 2013-14 have no disability and health problems. In any case, if there is a need, Tenby Schools have friendly facilities such as ramps for wheel chairs and we can also shift the lecture rooms to the ground floors. In the case of other types of disabilities, reasonable adjustments will be made by Tenby in line with Queen’s University regulations. Students will be informed of the relevant contacts in all institutions to include the Disability Officer and Advisor of Studies.”

Are students subject to Fitness to Practise Regulations

(Please see General Regulations)

Yes
All students must be cleared to work with children and young people.

EDUCATIONAL AIMS OF PROGRAMME

The programme aims to enable students to develop the understanding, abilities and competencies needed to teach in international schools. The current PGCE course addresses the competences contained in the Teacher Education Handbook (DENI, 1999) and the PGCEi is also designed to address these competences, where relevant, for the purposes of an international cohort of students. These are divided into 5 areas:

Understanding the curriculum and professional knowledge;

Subject knowledge and application;

Teaching strategies and techniques and classroom management;

Assessment and recording of pupils' progress;

Foundation for further professional development.

These are covered in the following aims which encompass the three course modules. The course aims:

to provide some of the essential background that students will need to understand when working in classrooms and schools in an international context;

to encourage students to reflect on pedagogy as a systematic discipline that can be theorised and researched with a view to developing more effective practice;

to encourage students to reflect on how children learn with a view to optimising their learning through effective pedagogical approaches;

to enable students to develop their competence and confidence in teaching their subject(s) at post-primary level OR primary level;

to enable students to develop their understanding of the professional role of a teacher;

to enable students to develop their knowledge and understanding of the post-primary OR primary curriculum;

to enable students to develop their teaching methodologies and strategies for managing teaching and learning effectively at the classroom level;

to enable students to develop their subject knowledge and application (post-primary students);

to enable students to develop their skills in assessing pupils’ learning;

to make links between theory and practice in the context of a school placement;

to develop teaching competence sufficient to meet the standards for the PGCEi;

to further develop confidence in working in a professional environment;
