Course summary

This distance learning course provides professional enrichment for educators working outside the UK.

Overview

If you love teaching, and want to get better at it, the PGCEi is for you. It focuses on improving professional practice for international educators through critical reflection and research. You will compare teaching approaches in different countries and develop a global approach to education. It does not matter what age or subject you teach – the PGCEi is relevant to all curricula and phases.

The PGCEi is a Level 7 qualification on the UK National Qualifications Framework and carries 60 CATS points.

This course comprises a face-to-face introduction in your cohort location, where you will meet your Nottingham-based tutor as well as fellow students. You will then complete your studies online with individual tutor support.

With PGCEi, you will:

  • improve your practice by building and developing ideas/strategies and testing these in your classroom
  • examine your education system from an international perspective
  • build your knowledge of the assumptions, concepts, and principles of a range of learning theories, evaluating their usefulness in specific situations
  • develop your expertise in practitioner research
  • make appropriate use of professional and research literature
