Why this programme?
This is a new programme which has been developed and will be delivered by FE+ (a partnership comprising Darlington, Hartlepool, Redcar & Cleveland, Middlesbrough, and Stockton Riverside College ) and will set a new benchmark for teacher training and professional development in Further Education. We are looking to recruit exceptional graduates and/or talented people from industry who can bring their much prized experience, knowledge and know-how into the profession. This programme has been designed with reference to best practice teacher training and practice at home and abroad (e.g. KIPP Foundation, TeachAmerica).
The core programme (Professional Graduate Certificate in Education) which you will complete in your first year is greatly enhanced with programmes in the second year that will give you the skills and tools to be an ‘Advanced Practitioner’, to understand and master the application of advanced learning technologies and prepare you for leadership and management in Further Education. During your programme you will work with a dedicated mentor and will buddy up with our best teachers who will ‘team teach’ with you so that you gain the full benefit of their experiences
