Postgraduate Certificate in Education (Secondary)

Information and Communications Technology

Much emphasis is placed on the use of information and communications technology throughout the PGCE course. On the School of Education and Human Development site, trainee teachers can make use of open-access computer rooms that have full technical support from Information Services. In addition, specialist sessions are offered to those who need to improve their basic ICT skills.

While you are in school you will have facilities for e-mail conferencing which will allow you to remain in contact with, and have the support of, your tutors and fellow trainee teachers in other schools. You will also have access to the internet via this link.

These facilities, as well as enabling you to produce high-quality teaching materials, will help you to enhance your own professional development and to become increasingly aware of the potential of ICT in education.
