I can only emphasise how important it is that PGCE trainees receive strong support in an encouraging atmosphere and the staff at Edge Hill provide that in abundance.
“The course content in Edge Hill’s Religious Education PGCE looked excellent and I thought it would suit me well. The chance to do an enhancement course in the subject before I started teacher training was also very appealing and gave me the chance to develop my knowledge further.
The course has really met my expectations and I’ve had exceptional support from my course leader all the way through. I have worked really hard throughout because I wanted to achieve to the level my tutor said I could, and I genuinely feel that I have.
The way the course is structured has allowed me to develop at my own pace, but still meet the deadlines and deliver all my lessons. I can only emphasise how important it is that PGCE trainees receive strong support in an encouraging atmosphere and the staff at Edge Hill provide that in abundance.
There are times when you’re tested to your limits and situations where, as a trainee, you could be undermined and your professional manner tested, but the superb tutors give you the tools to handle all those situations and still deliver all your planning and assignments.
I certainly have become the confident and able teacher that, at one time, I never imagined I could be.”
