PGCE Trainees’ comments
“I believe that the PGCE can be described with several adjectives. It was a challenging, incredibly interesting, exhausting experience. Having been teaching for a long time, the PGCE made me a better structured and more reflective teacher. It gave me the opportunity to share my experience with very skilled teachers, finding better ways to help all of my students learn.”
“The PGCE was a very fruitful experience for me. I definitely became more reflective about my practice, and learned about a variety of strategies and resources that have helped me to enrich my teaching and to try to make me the most of the learning experience of my students.”
“I started the PGCE course as an inexperienced teacher who thought I knew what I was doing. I finish the course as a qualified confident teacher who knows what I am doing but also understands the scope in which I can continue to improve my teaching practice in the future. I have learnt how to professionally plan lessons and incorporate differentiation, to vary teaching style and allow students to take ownership of their learning by making activities student-led and inclusive of collaborative work. I understand now how to use different strategies in assessment, behavior management and delivering specific feedback for the purpose of meeting the learning needs of my students. All of which combined was has vastly improved me as a teacher.”
Having worked as a high school teacher for nearly eight years, I faced a common challenge for many experienced teachers: I wanted to incorporate new methodologies into the content of my classes, while at the same time getting rid of some of the unproductive habits developed over the years; This motivated me to study the IPGCE.
The structure of the course helped me to enter into the dynamics of constant preparation, the search for new materials and the incorporation of new dynamics in a permanent way, starting from feedback with the mentor, it fosters critical self-reflection, something very Valuable, that I am correct, it helps that the habits are modified and that the classes are enriched, not only in so much that its structure, but because the knowledge and the responsibility of this one, becomes shared with the students themselves. So today, a couple of years after completing the IPGCE I can say that my professionalism, preparation and the tools that I have as a teacher are much broader, always goal oriented and constantly changing towards improvement.
