Comments from course leaders CPD including Masters, EdD and PhDs Linking research to the classroom Involving modern technology New initiatives, new ideas and new findings
David Waugh (PGCE primary) I think a crucial element of our training, which is not replicated where student teachers are dotted about in school-based providers, is the cohort. Our students work together; share common experiences; offer mutual support; learn from each other; share expertise; have friends etc.
Ros Roberts (PGCE secondary) I think that the support that our students get from dedicated staff (whose prime focus is on the ITE students, not on the pupils which is where school colleagues’ primary responsibility is) is another significant factor in the experience of the students and leads to their success.
