Bath Spa University – PGCE partner

PCP SCITT are pleased to work in partnership with Bath Spa University, an Outstanding provider of Teacher Training, to award the Postgraduate Certificate of Education (PGCE).

PCP SCITT PGCE trainees will be registered as students with Bath Spa University and will have access to their online Library and their VLE site (Minerva). PCP SCITT provide taught sessions and assessment and Bath Spa moderate and validate the qualification.

Bath Spa University’s PGCE is designed with SCITTs and for SCITTs, in order to ensure that critical thinking and reflection form an integrated part of both QTS and PGCE programmes and, as a result, an integrated part of each teacher’s practice. Learning is placed at the heart of each assignment, in order to form explicit links with classroom practice, QTS and the Core Content Framework.
