Great course, with modules that make transition from starting to qualifying as smooth as possible. Excellent, high quality placements where you are supported by both university tutors in addition to in-school mentors!
Really good supportive lecturers and generally good organisation from the university. Majority of lectures seem futile, with slides that appear to have been used multiple times, with inaccurate information and dates, due to how long the lecturers choose to use them. The course has a range of different aspects that are covered clearly, with some engaging activities. The course is easily adaptable to an individuals knowledge and ability. It’s such a shame that feedback on assignments is kept to a minimum.
Most lecturers deliver good quality lessons, however, there are some that are new and unsure of what they’re supposed to be teaching. Also, a lecturers who is supposed to teach the English module does not practice good English by saying things such as ‘gunna’ and ‘could of’. There needs to be regular checks on lecturers just like there is in teachers.
The course is good but there needs to be more tweaks so that there is more information about school based training before placement begins. The staff lecturers are great, they provide loads of information, readings, handouts and also go through anything you do not understand. With specific subjects you are able to understand them so easily due to interaction with staff and the support that you get,
Some course modules can be taught with passion and understand although some modules lack relevance to the course. Also modules have been scrapped and replaced with an audit which is unfair as we have not have sufficient teaching.
