A presentation event was held for the Postgraduate Certificate of Education (PGCE) and the Certificate of Education students. The event formed part of an assessment whereby the learners had to produce a poster, which tested not only their computer and design skills put also research capabilities and give a short speech to support this artwork. Students from both courses were able to choose a theme whether it be an area of their own interest or something more topical such as literacy, numeracy or dyspraxia. Over 50 people attended the event including representatives form the University of Huddersfield as well as friends and supporters of the students.Postgraduate Certificate of Education Presentation Event – full story
