A range of courses - linked to your career phase and professional interests
Within ECLS, Education courses are delivered at postgraduate level, with a range of taught and research programmes. We are committed to developing the potential for all teachers by providing opportunities that can be truly contextualised within the work-place and career phase. We encourage teachers on our courses to be informed by and focused on their own professional interests.
For teachers at the beginning of their career we offer Initial Teacher Training courses at Primary and Secondary level (PGCE) which lead to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). On successful completion of the PGCE, trainees at Newcastle have the option to progress directly onto our M.Ed Practitioner Enquiry programme.
The School of ECLS has also recently launched a new professional development research programme in Applied Educational Psychology, DAppEdPsy.
