About PGCE Primary (3-7), PGCE - at Bishop Grosseteste University

This PGCE course prepares you to teach children in the 3 to 7 range as a general primary teacher. It is a very practical course with around two thirds of the time spent in schools, mostly working with teachers and pupils, and around one third spent on directed study, with partnership training in the University and school. It is an integrated academic and professional preparation for teaching, combining study at either postgraduate or professional level with practical training to meet the Teachers' Standards by the end of the course.

  • GCSEs at grade 4 (previously C) or above (or equivalent) in English Language, Mathematics and a Science at the time of application.
  • An honours degree at a 2:2 classification or above (Where the degree result is to be awarded in the year of application, we will require a predicted degree classification as part of an academic reference provided on the application)

  • GCSE grades (or equivalents) and relevance of subjects
  • A Level grades (or equivalents) and relevance of subjects
  • Degree Class and relevance of content

Experience in a relevant setting is useful as it will help you to make sure that you are aware of the role of a teacher in the twenty-first century. The course is intensive and demanding and you need to be aware of what a career in the teaching profession entails.
