Trainees will be assessed against the Teacher Standards for both the salaried and non-salaried programmes.
Salaried Trainees will be awarded Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) at the end of the year when trainees have successfully met these standards. Trainees will be supported in gathering evidence of these standards and this will be viewed in a Partnership Meeting at the end of the course. For those trainees who would like a PGCE qualification, there is a post training programme which would take place in your NQT year. This would consist of a research project carried out in your class. There would be a cost involved.
Non- Salaried Trainees will gain a PGCE (Post Graduate Certificate in Education) with 60 Masters credits and is the highest qualification a PGCE candidate can gain.
The Institute of Education are the accrediting body and "Teach Thurrock" trainees are registered with them. The Insitute of Education has ultimate responsibility for quality assurance and make the final decision on whether a PGCE QTS should be awarded. The lead school is Dilkes Academy and you will need to search for Dilkes on the UTT site (UCAS Teacher Training).
