Hello I am in my final year of ed studies at Derby and i love it! Really enjoy the modules and I have been offered a place on the primary pgce at derby too. To be honest i think the pgce looks at the type of person you are, what other activities outside of uni that you participate in and what practical experiences you have (i.e - placements/work experience), a relevant degree related to education is also handy but saying that I know of people who have a degree in a specific subject that have been accepted on to the pgce too.

Today I found out that I was rejected for the Primary Ed course at Derby, but they offered me a place on the Education Studies course instead.
Can someone either doing the course, or who has been to an Open Day for this course fill me in about the course in more detail that then webiste does?
I'd like to know what the modules are like and how well prepared they leave you for a career in teaching.
Good luck with everything! :-)
sorry - the modules I have had so far are behaviour management, curriculum corruption and construction, contemporary issues. All of which are related and relevant to teaching. This semester I am taking modules in SEN, learning and motivation and education development. I have a dissertation to produce too. Hope this helps? P.M me with any questions
