Course summary

Intro

The Further Education and Teaching PGCE provides a formal teaching qualification for people working, or wishing to work, in the further education sector. This could include a college of further education, a sixth form college or an organisation such as a private training company.

The programme has an excellent reputation and was rated Good by Ofsted in our 2018 inspection.

The programme is delivered through a partnership stretching across East and West Sussex that includes full-time courses at the University of Brighton (Falmer campus), Northbrook Metropolitan College and East Sussex College Group, and part-time courses at Brighton Metropolitan College and East Sussex College Group.

If you already hold a degree, it is anticipated that you will graduate with a Professional Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE), and there may also be an opportunity to gain masters-level credits. Applicants without a first degree will graduate with a Certificate in Education.

Course structure

Students who opt for the part-time route must be working in the post-16 sector, and are normally expected to continue teaching for at least 50 hours per academic year for the duration of the course.

For the part-time in-service route you will be required to attend one half-day session per week during college term times, in addition to your regular teaching commitments. The full-time route is aimed at those who are not currently teaching and is a combination of taught sessions at the university and a teaching placement at an appropriate institution.

The full-time routes is currently taught at three sites: Falmer campus, East Sussex College Group and Northbrook Metropolitan College (Art, Design and Media route).

Careers

The course is part of the university's continuing professional development provision, designed to enhance the knowledge and skills of teachers and others involved in training or development, whether professional or voluntary.

Credit-rated routes to the various awards enable students to build from certificate-level through diploma, first degree, postgraduate certificate and postgraduate diploma to masters level.
