Constructive alignment in the Teaching Qualification (Further Education) at the University of Stirling

By Iddo Oberski and Kathy Nicoll


The Teaching Qualification (Further Education) (TQFE) programme at the University of\ud Stirling is now in its fifth year of delivery and highly rated by its students and by the\ud further education (FE) sector in Scotland. The core programme was initially designed for\ud students already employed in the sector as lecturers, but has more recently also been\ud developed as a pre-service route into lecturing (ie an initial teacher education programme)\ud with student practice placement in FE colleges. To accomplish the TQFE, students must\ud successfully complete six core units, each of which addresses a key area of practice,\ud such as 'The FE context', 'Curriculum Design', 'Assessment', and so on. The programme\ud is offered at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, in full or part-time mode and in\ud face-to-face and distant delivery mode. Once completed, students may enrol on a\ud Research & Enquiry unit, and depending on their prior entry qualifications, this unit allows\ud them to graduate with a degree or a postgraduate diploma with the TQFE
