Human Rights and International Conflict - MA

  • Duración: 1 año Full-time
  • Precio curso: 8.100 £

Course overview
Human rights and international conflicts confront us with the most urgent moral and political issues of our time. Theoretically, we are confronted with the issue of how to reconcile unconditional rights with consequentialist ethics of political responsibility and rival ideologies of social order. Practically, we are confronted with particular powers, interests and conflicts demanding judgement and action that is at once moral and pragmatic. The MA in Human Rights and International Conflict will explore such issues and attempt to cultivate such judgement. The course provides both a solid academic grounding in human rights and international relations and a wide choice of optional modules. Students are trained in research methodology, before completing a 12-15,000 word dissertation dealing in depth with a subject of their choice.

Taught by published experts in human rights, peace and conflict studies, international relations, politics, history, philosophy, women’s studies and other subjects, this multidisciplinary course equips students with the kind of understanding necessary to work for peace, justice and human rights in the real world.

PGCE Early Years/KS1 - PGCE

  • Duración: 1 año Full-time
  • Precio curso: 9.250 £

Course overview
The course aims to facilitate trainees to become teachers who are of the highest quality; reflective, creative, imaginative and responsive to all children’s needs.

The course is designed to enable you to develop your understanding of the role of the Early Years and the Primary teacher within the broad field of education. There will be opportunities to extend your knowledge, develop your classroom practice and examine the underlying principles and values that inform current debates around educational issues. Through evaluation and reflection you will be supported in developing a clear understanding of the links between theory and practice.

We are proud to be one of the first courses to formally embed the principles of children’s rights (UNCRC) into our programme providing a universal values framework within which teachers can work to develop education which meets the needs of the children they teach.
Course structure
The PGCE Early Years /Key Stage 1 is a year long course, which is both rewarding and demanding. The course is a blend of taught sessions at the university and school-based training. The university sessions are designed to be as interactive and collaborative as possible, to ensure that you experience a range of learning approaches.

The course includes 120 days in two London placements in Early Years/Key Stage 1 settings learning to teach with a mentor (an experienced classroom teacher) where classroom experience is extended with University set tasks and practical research. In both contexts, self-directed study is extremely important throughout the course to support your development in purposeful educational enquiry, preparing effective teaching resources and ensuring up-to-date subject knowledge.

During University sessions, the course consists of the two modules:

The Curriculum Studies module is the theoretical underpinning of the practice that students take into the classroom and as such provides access to the pedagogical knowledge and understanding required to effectively plan and teach well structured lessons in Early Year’s curriculum and pedagogy, english and mathematics, science and foundation subjects, and assess pupil’s progress in each of the these curriculum areas.
The PiP sessions support the wider professional development of each student teacher. This programme provides discussion of the role of children’s rights and how this underpins effective learning relationships; understanding of different aspects of inclusive education; introduction to the whole school and wider children’s workforce and team work and collaborative discussion across different subject areas.
Both modules involve reflection on personal learning experiences and their application to the process of becoming a teacher in relation to the Teachers’ Standards and critical examination of education policy and practices as well as national and local data.

PGCE Schools Direct
The School Direct model we are adopting is one which aligns the training calendar for the student teacher with the PGCE offered at the university. This means we will only be able to offer places in Primary / Early Years, and in Secondary in Citizenship, English, Maths, MFL, PE and Science (with a specialism in Biology, Chemistry or Physics). Student teachers will attend the training workshops at the university with regular PGCE students. The placements will be planned to take place within the school / consortium of schools with the School Direct allocation. Within the overall requirement of 120 days in school, this time could be divided between two schools with some flexibility.

The consortium is part of the much larger family of nearly 100 School Direct at London Met schools. It represents a large body of schools that have joined together with London Metropolitan University to build a cross-capital alliance, providing diverse contexts in which to train the new generation of London teachers.

Most of our trainees follow a programme modelled on the traditional PGCE, with time spent under tutor supervision at London Metropolitan University, and the school experience divided between two partner schools. A small number of primary schools have requested School Direct salaried trainees; they will host the trainee for the majority of the course, and release them to the university, for tuition.
