    1.1 WELCOME TO THE SCHOOL DIRECT PGCE PROGRAMME On behalf of the University, the Graduate School of Education and our Partnership Schools we offer you a warm welcome. We hope that you will find your time with us both challenging and rewarding and that you will take away with you memories of good times, both social and professional.

    Initial Teacher Education at the University of Exeter has a long and proud history of excellence, with its programmes being judged by Ofsted as outstanding in all respects. The tutors working on the programme are excellent practitioners within their field and use research to inform and develop their teaching.

    You have been recruited onto the School Direct PGCE programme because we have already recognised your academic capabilities and teaching potential. In partnership with schools it is our aim to develop you as teachers who will have a high impact on students learning. We view the PGCE as the first stage of your professional development as a teacher. Using the Exeter Model of Initial Teacher Education and with your hard work and commitment we hope that you will develop into outstanding teachers who go on to take advantage of further professional learning opportunities and thus enhance the life chances of the children and young people that you teach over the course of your career.
