This one-year Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) will recommend you for Qualified Teacher Status to teach children aged 5-11 in primary, infant, junior or first and middle schools. You will learn to teach the key areas of English, Mathematics, Science, primary languages and the foundation subjects across the ability spectrum and primary age range.
We ensure that you have access to the best possible support, advice and guidance, during your course. You will be supported by a range of university tutors, with responsibility for developing your subject knowledge and training. Additionally, you will have a school mentor, who will offer professional and personal support.
This course allows you to fast-track to Stage Two of a Masters’ degree, giving you the advantage of rapid professional development. Other educational careers outside of teaching include education lecturing, school inspection, advisory or consultancy roles, initial teacher training, or administration in local education authorities (LEAs) and examination boards. Organisations such as museums and theatres also employ teachers as education officers.
