Applying for the CPEd
Teachers who have been teaching in the Beaconhouse School System for three years and are recommended by their school head can apply for the CPEd.
All applicants to the CPEd will be marked in three phases. The criteria and score for each phase is clearly laid out on the CPEd Selection Criteria Scoring Sheet. Applicants can log in at http://beams.beaconhouse.edu.pk to see the mark sheets they will need to fill out.
The three phases are:
1. The application form.
Applicants should transfer information from the application form to the scoring sheet. The three questions here will be scored out of 20.
2. The writing task.
Each applicant will write a 200 word narrative on their personal and professional life, in English. The writing task will be scored out of 30 on the following criteria:
- The applicant’s ability to stay focused and to fully address the topic and ensure that his or her main ideas are sufficiently developed and supported
- The ability to use a range of sentence structures and organise his or her ideas cohesively
- The ability to use punctuation to appropriately clarify the meaning of the sentence
- The ability to use neat and legible handwriting and use correct spelling
3. The interview.
A one to one interview is conducted to evaluate the candidate’s proficiency in spoken English as well as his or her ability and motivation.
Applying for the PGCert and the MEd
Applicants for the PGCert have to complete the CPEd to be considered for the programme.
Students who finish the PGCert with a distinction are given scholarships to enrol in the MEd programme at Leeds Metropolitan University.
