Some PGCEs are at Masters Level, others are not - will this affect my job prospects?Some PGCEs are at Masters Level, others are not - will this affect my job prospects?​UCAS explain the difference between the two levels of PGCE course:<br><br>In addition to QTS many training programmes also award you the Professional Graduate Certificate in Education, the Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) or the Professional Graduate Diploma in Education (PGDE). These are academic qualifications focusing on developing teaching skills. You still get QTS, but you'd get a PGCE as well. The Professional Graduate Certificate in Education is at the same level academically as the final year of an honours degree (NQF Level 6 course). The Postgraduate Certificate in Education and the Professional Graduate Diploma in Education contain some credits at master's (NQF Level 7) degree level. The number of credits at this level varies a lot from one training programme to another. Some providers give you the chance to study for the credits you'd need for a full master's degree after you've completed your training. <br><br>The UCAS Course Search allows you to specify professional (not Masters level) or postgraduate (Masters level) PGCEs (or either) – select these in the 'outcomes' drop-down box.<br><br>QTS is required to teaching state schools in England. However, if you want to teach internationally, or in other UK regions (particularly Scotland) you are likely to need an academic qualification such as a PGCE alongside this. The requirement for masters-level credits varies between countries.   <br><br>At Leeds Trinity University, PGCEs are offered at both Level 6 and Level 7, and it expected that trainees will study the two 30 credit modules to gain a Level 7 Post Graduate Certificate in Education, unless there is a clear reason not to do so. The two modules that trainees undertake are in each placement, with one focussing on pupil progression, and the other on supporting individual pupil needs. Once completed a Leeds Trinity graduate can 'port' their 60 credits directly into the Leeds Trinity MA in Education, and begin their MA studies at the second year of study, rather than the first.<br>LTU Authoring
A friend of mine received a parking fine for parking incorrectly – why was this? What do you class as parking incorrectly?A friend of mine received a parking fine for parking incorrectly – why was this? What do you class as parking incorrectly?​Parking fines are issued when people park in an irresponsible way that either restricts parking for someone else, or represents a danger to safety (for example by blocking access routes for emergency services). Irresponsible parking includes parking on double yellow lines, across more than one space, on grass verges, or in an accessible parking space reserved for people with disabilities/mobility issues. Fines will also be issued if a parking permit or pay and display ticket is not clearly displayed, or if someone parks in a car sharing space before 11am. <br>LTU Authoring
