Course summary

This full-time PGCE in English Literacy and Language is perfect if you hold a degree in English or a related subject and are looking to become qualified to teach people who speak English as a second language, and also those whose first language is English and are looking to improve their literacy skills. You will undertake two placements as part of the course to gain specialist knowledge of both areas.

You should have a keen interest in language and how it works, enjoy working with people of other backgrounds and cultures to develop their language skills and have a good level of spoken and written English.

This course is aimed at those who are looking to study on a full-time basis.

Once you complete this course you will be eligible to apply for QTLS which has parity of esteem with QTS.
