Course summary

This full-time, one-year course is designed to train you to apply your knowledge flexibly to a variety of contexts and to model good practice while teaching. You will focus on teaching and learning across the curriculum in secondary schools.

The course runs from September to July and you’ll spend most of this time (at least 24 weeks) on placement in schools.

The course enables you to develop your skills of critical analysis and engage with educational research at the same time as developing practical classroom skills through school experience. It is taught at master’s level which will allow you to gain up to 60 credits towards a master’s qualification in the future. By the end of the course, you’ll be a reflective practitioner equipped to continue your professional learning throughout your career.

The programme is taught by experienced and enthusiastic tutors, in partnership with mentors and teachers in local schools who will support you throughout the year.

Teaching and Assessment

The course is assessed through observation during teaching placements and written assignments.

To gain a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) students need to complete three 4,000-word assignments at FHEQ level 7 (Masters), and two blocks of School Experience.

The programme is delivered full-time over 38 weeks with 70% practical school experience in established partner schools and 30% university-based time, divided between Professional Studies and subject study.

This experience provides you with the opportunity to work alongside serving teachers, learning about the broader roles and skills of teachers and other school staff.

Where this can take you

This programme prepares you for a career as a secondary school teacher. At the end of the year upon satisfactory completion of the programme, you will be awarded a PGCE and be recommended for Qualified Teacher Status and will be ready for the next stage of your development as a Newly Qualified Teacher in school. Our students are highly successful in gaining teaching posts, many in our partner schools.
