CU Coventry

PreTeach is a one-term short course for candidates who are about to embark on a Coventry University PGCE.  PreTeach introduces you to the craft of the classroom and aims to help you to begin to develop your own standards and explore how to manage your time and wellbeing. You will also be introduced to the ways in which children learn as well as what to expect from your PGCE year.  


For those wishing to have an opportunity to gain further knowledge and understanding of teaching, we also offer PreTeach Skill-Builder short courses. Skill-Builders are one school term in length and consist of four short courses, each concentrating on a specific teaching skill. There are 12 short courses to choose from, all of which are delivered online. Topics include how to manage pupil behaviour, how to plan a lesson, how to teach pupils of all abilities, and how to assess and mark.
