Course summary

Course Overview

Our two-year, part-time and in-service programme is validated and certificated by De Montfort University. Students joining the course in 2021 will attend College on Wednesdays. The course will introduce you to aspects of teaching, learning and assessment to enable you to develop your work as a teacher, trainer or tutor. This course is for those working or wanting to work with learners who are aged 16 or over, including areas such as sixth form, further education, offender learning and adult and community education. After successfully completing the course, you will be eligible to apply for QTLS (Qualified Teacher in Learning and Skills status).

The level 6 Professional Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) is available to candidates who have already achieved an undergraduate degree. This doesn’t have to be in the subject you want to teach so long as you have significant industrial experience or a minimum level 3 qualification in your specialist teaching area.

How you will be assessed

You will be assessed by a variety of methods including presentations, written assignments and practical teaching observations.

Course and Career progression

Once you have completed the course you will be a fully qualified teacher in the post-compulsory education and training sector and will be able to apply for QTLS status. You may wish to move on to take a subject specialist qualification in literacy, ESOL or maths, or progress on to an MA in education.
