  • RESEARCH IS FUNDAMENTAL TO THE UNIVERSITY OF MANCHESTER.

    We’re committed to both the discovery of new knowledge and its application for social and economic value. Researchers in Manchester’s beacon areas are at the forefront of the search for innovative solutions to some of the biggest challenges facing the planet today.

    OUR RESEARCH BEACONS:

    • Global inequalities • Advanced materials • Cancer • Energy • Industrial biotechnology

    GLOBAL CHALLENGE: The education systems of many affluent countries contain a paradox. Although education is seen as the way out of poverty, learners from poorer backgrounds consistently do badly in the education system and are educationally disadvantaged. MANCHESTER SOLUTION: We used our extensive educational research to design the Greater Manchester Challenge. Based on the proven success of our research to improve teaching and learning in a variety settings, we were invited by government to design and deliver this £50 million three-year programme to raise educational standards across the city’s schools.

    GLOBAL CHALLENGE: Intervention to support children and young people on the autism spectrum is a rapidly developing area. However, research in this area has not been systematically drawn together to inform what might work best in schools. MANCHESTER SOLUTION: Our research identified effective interventions and features of educational policies which enable interventions to be utilised effectively. Our research, commissioned by the National Council for Special Education, Ireland, has informed new policy guidance and will help schools to adopt interventions which are evidence-based and most likely to be effective. It also underpins a professional development framework for all staff working with children and young people on the autism spectrum.

    Schools now have more freedom

    to develop their own pay policies to attract and

    retain teachers who have the greatest impact

    on their pupils’ learning

    PGCEs are a route to train to teach and recommendation

    for qualified teaching status (QTS) for those who already have an

    undergraduate degree.

    You need QTS to teach in a state-maintained or special school in England and Wales.

    Whilst other routes to gain QTS exist, they do not all come with the postgraduate

    qualification of a PGCE.

    A PGCE from The University of Manchester is a valued qualification

    regionally, nationally and internationally.

    Qualified teachers undertake continuous professional

    development throughout their career, both to maintain the latest subject knowledge and teaching

    techniques, and if desired, to facilitate progression into leadership and

    management positions.

    A PGCE qualification can count as 60 of the 180 credits required for a master’s degree and The

    University of Manchester offers an MA in Educational Leadership (part-time) should

    you wish to continue your professional development by completing a

    master’s in the future.

    WHAT TO EXPECT

    HOW WILL I LEARN? The structure of our PGCEs includes both school-based and university-based learning. Studying a primary PGCE with The University of Manchester means that you will spend a significant amount of your time in primary schools on placements. On our secondary PGCEs, around two-thirds of your time will be spent in secondary schools, academies and colleges on placements. The University’s partnership schools are highly committed to giving you the best possible experience whilst you are on your school placements, giving you the opportunity to put into practice all the knowledge you have acquired from sessions held at the University. The remaining time will be spent at the University, for example in lectures and seminars, including group-work. On the secondary PGCE, you will work in subject-specific groups.

    THE TIME COMMITMENT As a guide, you should anticipate that time in university-based learning combined with school-based placements will roughly equate to the time commitment of a full-time job, with additional time required in evenings and weekends for background reading, lesson planning and completing written assignments. Our PGCE courses start in September and are ten months in duration. Whilst you will get time off from attending University and school placements over Christmas and Easter, you should expect to spend some time in self- directed study over these breaks. PGCE courses are intensive and challenging training courses but lead to a highly-regarded professional qualification and a rewarding career in teaching.
