Army Uses Blended Learning to Train Trainers


The British Army has joined forces with the University of Southampton to deliver a PGCE(PCET) by blended learning.

The programme delivers the standard two year part-time PGCE(PCET) in one initial six week period with the remainder of the course delivered over 13 months through blended learning in the workplace.

The course will be delivered to all new entrants to the Adjutant General's Corps Educational and Training Services (ETS) Branch as they start their careers as professional military educators.

It will be delivered jointly by tutors from the University of Southampton and by experienced ETS Officers who become accredited as Teaching Fellows of the university.

Brigadier Mark Filler, Director of Educational and Training Services (Army), said: "Ensuring that we have all ETS officers trained with the right skills is fundamental to the success of our delivery of educational excellence to the wider Army. This application of blended and work-based learning has to be a more efficient use of our manpower."

The Army intends to further build a developmental programme with the University of Southampton to enable ETS officers to achieve a MA (Ed) at the earliest opportunity in their Army career.

This is a core qualification for ETS officers who later specialize in the delivery of training support guidance, language training and officers' education to the Army.
