During this module you will work in school for 36 weeks. Throughout your school placement you will compile an Individual Development Portfolio (IDP) that contains evidence of achieving the professional standards required by the National College for Teaching and Learning (NCTL) for recommendation for Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). Successful completion of all three modules leads to the award of PGCE (School Direct) with QTS.
