Course summary

Teaching professionals can play a pivotal role in the development of children and young people, inspiring them to learn and developing their knowledge and skills in preparation for their future.

This course has been carefully developed in collaboration with our partner schools to ensure a curriculum and mode of teaching that is as far as possible in line with employer expectations. Trainees are encouraged to be reflective and build their own philosophy of education in order to cultivate their identity as a teacher.

The academic content of this programme is integrated with Initial Teacher Training at one of our partner institutions' School Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) Centres, with the aim that students emerge from the course with an understanding of how academic knowledge and research can be integral to their own careers and to the development of education.

The School of Education at the University of Lincoln is working with the Lincolnshire SCITT and St George's Academy Partnership, both incorporating a wide range of schools across Lincolnshire, to provide teaching places in a range of secondary school settings.


Graduates are normally awarded the PGCE from the University of Lincoln and Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) from our partner institutions.

Graduates may gain 60 Masters Credits by being awarded the PGCE from the University of Lincoln, which can be used to contribute towards further study in Education if desired.

Career and Personal Development

A career in secondary education can be highly rewarding. Through reflective practice, teachers can inspire and encourage young children to become independent learners, and watch them grow academically, socially, and emotionally.

Students who complete this course alongside gaining qualified teacher status may embark on a career in teaching, or they can continue within academia by studying for an MA in Education or PhD.
