PGCE RE Professionalism Conference – Cowley International College (18.9.18)

Today trainees got the chance to visit one of our outstanding partnership schools, Cowley International College in St Helens. Led by the experienced RE team, trainees were able to reflect on the notion and importance of professionalism, benefit from the experiences of ex-Alumni and get some top tips for being professional from Principal Cameron Sheeran. They also got the chance to chat to some fabulous students who shared their experiences of RE and their thoughts on what makes a good RE lesson. A fantastic afternoon that got everyone looking forward to starting their first placement next week. Thanks Cowley!

RE PGCE 2018: Religious Literacy

After a very hectic first week in which the new trainees have looked at everything from  constructivism and the Magenta Principles to SACRE’s and the place of RE, today they enjoyed trialing some independent work to develop their understanding of religious literacy – a key concept that in recent that has gone above and beyond the RE classroom! Trainees came up with some great twitter feeds and hashtags to promote religious literacy and to demonstrate progress in their own development #soproud
