Benefits

Membership of CPCET provides:

  • Opportunities to deliver and develop high quality HE programmes;
  • Access to nationally and internationally recognised professional qualifications;
  • Sufficient numbers of students to form groups of subject specialists - a highly valued feature of teacher training for PCET;
  • Resources and networks to support curriculum and staff development, and the research of practice;
  • Economies of scale in marketing, purchasing, administration etc.
  • Access via electronic means for students and staff to an increasingly large repository of learning resources, and to guidance and support;
  • Study that draws on the distinctive, but equally valuable, contributions of both FE and HE:
  • practitioners from FE and other institutions ensure currency and relevance in curriculum delivery;
  • HE involvement ensures that practice is informed by research and reflection, and that it is recognised as University level professional training;
  • Financial support for Cert.Ed./PGCE students through DfES designation as an ITT course in the learning and skills sector.
  • Common/co-ordinated systems of student support and administration (which, through the use of new technologies, increasingly makes courses simpler, quicker and less costly to run).
  • Economies of scale - such as through the sharing of market intelligence, development costs for new provision and of good practice between 28+ organisations.
