About PGCE Secondary Economics and Business Education at University of Manchester, School of Environment, Education and Development, University of Manchester, Faculty of Humanities

This course will prepare you to become a teacher of business education across the 14 -19 age range. It combines master's level academic study of business education with a range of school and college experiences. Completion of the 10 month course leads to both a postgraduate qualification and qualified teacher status (QTS).

More than two-thirds of your time will be spent in our partnership schools and colleges, where you will develop practical teaching skills with the support of trained mentors and established teachers. You will have the opportunity to visit a range of educational establishments, in particular outstanding local sixth form colleges, to hone your skills and understanding of specific teaching theory and practice.

Collaborative learning and formative teaching will allow you to develop the knowledge and capabilities of students in your own classrooms in all aspects of business education, including business studies, economics, and accounting and key vocational business qualifications. You will be taught by a teaching team with a nationally recognised reputation for research, teaching and publications in business education.
