Why PGCE Further Education?

The PGCE Further Education is a professional course that will qualify you to teach in the lifelong learning sector. This sector offers you a breadth of potential employment routes including Further Education colleges, sixth form colleges, adult and community learning, work-based learning and prison education.

Who is this course for?

The course is designed for those seeking employment in the Post Compulsory sector and those who obtain the PGCE will not be eligible for Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) required for teaching in the compulsory sector. The course is endorsed by Lifelong Learning UK and those obtaining the PGCE will be eligible to apply for Qualified Teacher Learning and Skills (QTLS) status.

The PGCE accommodates all subject specialisms. However, an on offer of a place on the course is subject to the University securing a placement for you in your subject specialism area within one of our partnership colleges.
