This programme is the Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE).  PGCE (Further Education and Training Teaching) (Grade 7-12)  PGCE: (Senior Phase & Further Education and Training Teaching) (Grade 10-12) Through its teacher education programmes, the Faculty strives to prepare teachers who are caring, accountable and critically reflective about the who, what, how and why of teaching in a diversity of contexts.Through integrating coursework at the University and practicum at schools the Faculty creates learning opportunities for student-teachers to acquire  a thorough understanding of learning and development in childhood/adolescence  sound subject knowledge  an understanding of contextual factors that impact learning and schooling  an appreciation of the demands of the teaching profession  a repertoire of teaching strategies and skills  a reflective stance towards teaching.

The primary school teacher education programmes are unique in the country. The coursework is integrated with practical experience over four years in the UJ founded, Funda UJabule School. At this school, which is situated on the Soweto campus, students observe how children learn and develop, they work closely with teachers and they are mentored by the teachers.

17 2019 UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMMES SPECIFIC REGULATIONS FOR THE BED IN SENIOR PHASE AND FET TEACHING • Teaching methodology and practicum are integrated.

This implies that students will engage in learning from practice, learning in practice and learning from service, aiming at developing specialised pedagogical content knowledge and teaching competence in each subject area. • The fourth year of the programme will strongly focus on developing the student teacher as reflective practitioner. During their fourth year students will be placed in different schools on the list of approved schools for Work Integrated Learning (WIL). During their placements at schools they will not only take on teaching responsibilities, but they will also do assignments which will require the demonstration of integrated and applied knowing.

These assignments will form the basis for engaging in critical reflection during coursework on campus. • The fourth year module follows a“commuting”(Korthagen et al 2001)2 structure. In the fourth year a practice-to-theory-to-practice approach is followed – an alternation between practical in-school experiences, reflection on these experiences, relating experiences to relevant theory, and bringing theory to bear on fresh situations. The academic coursework on campus is primarily aimed at preparing students for their placement in schools, but also affords students the opportunity to reflect on their experiences in schools and to enrich these experiences through invoking theory, which in turn will initiate the next cycle in the practice-to-theory-to- practice approach.

During placement at schools, students will be required to take on teaching responsibilities, as well as completion of assignments which will require the demonstration of integrated and applied knowing.

• The curriculum does not include the development of basic Information Communications Technology (ICT) competence as fundamental learning. Students who do not pass a basic ICT competency test will be required to attend compulsory ICT skills workshops • Students do the academic majors with other faculties therefore the content is not reflected in the presentation. The home department principle applies that other faculties take full responsibility for the modules. However the learning support specializations and the Technology related majors are offered by the Faculty of Education and are included in this presentation.

PRACTICUM WHICH INCLUDES WIL Study period Duration Assessment First Year 1 weeks Second Year 3 weeks The WIL at schools consists mainly of structured observation linked to assignments which are formally assessed Third Year 3 weeks During WIL at schools students take up teaching responsibilities which are formally assessed by the teacher mentors and also by staff.

The following four (4) subjects might not be known to you; here are some additional information regarding these subjects: Subject Content Physical Education The purpose of this subject is to develop the role of the teacher as a support specialist in secondary schools in order to address movement programmes in the holistic development of the secondary school learner Addressing Neurodevelopmental Learning Needs The purpose of this module is to assist the teacher in developing knowledge about neurodevelopment in adolescence.
