Supporting professional development in Initial Teacher Training


Unit image

The OU PGCE, which is no longer taught by the University, was been developed by The Open University and its partner schools to provide an innovative, student-teacher centred approach to initial teacher education. We aimed to build on the skills, knowledge and experience that student teachers bring to the profession, and then to prepare them for a career in teaching. The course led to the award of PGCE, and Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) conferred by the appropriate statutory body. Working with a Partner Schools Network, the OU PGCE provided a rigorous and rewarding course that opened up individual routes into teaching.
