English (11-16) (AE29)
On successful completion of the course students are awarded QTS, PGCE, comprising 60 credits at Master Level 6.
Students are placed in two highly performing schools, mentored by good and outstanding teachers.
They will experience all aspects of school life which is invaluable when applying for future teaching positions.
Students will spend more than 120 days in schools on placement.
We arrange for students visit provision to increase their awareness of where children transition from and to (pre and post secondary), providing a holistic understanding of children’s progression.
Students will also have the opportunity to view best practice for SEN and EAL children.
Students will spend the vast majority of their time at Horizon Community College. After February half term students will spend 4 weeks in an alternative placement school.
At Horizon, an English teacher is someone with a fierce love of their subject, who is talented, motivated and can inspire students to achieve their full potential.
We have a splendidly diverse mix of experience and talent within a large team of staff who are enthusiastic about innovation, collaborative in their working practices and committed to raising standards.
A particular benefit for staff that are new to the profession is the individually tailored support they will receive within the department from English colleagues with designated mentoring responsibilities.
As part of this dynamic and successful team, you should therefore be committed to achieving the highest standards and possess the creativity to maximise the use of our state-of-the-art resources and facilities.
We are proud of what we have achieved at Horizon thus far, but we firmly believe that the best is yet to come: we invite you to play your role in that journey!
