Course summary

This two-year nationally recognised qualification, validated by the University of Brighton, is for those who are unqualified, but are currently working in teaching or training with post-16 learners. You are also eligible for this course if you do not currently teach, but have secured 50 or more hours of teaching or training for the coming academic year.

The course offers two distinct routes - ProfGCE and Certificate in Education - and which route you will study on depends upon your previous highest level of qualification (see Entry requirements tab for further details). However, both are formal qualifications that allow the recipient to teach Post-16 education in formal education settings, such as FE colleges, Sixth Form colleges, and private training institutions.

The course consists of one evening of lessons a week, for 30 weeks, and the expectation that each student will deliver a minimum of 50 hours of teaching per year within a teaching or training institution. Lessons are delivered face-to-face at our central Brighton campus, with some sessions being delivered as distance “blended” sessions.

Our part-time courses are “in-service” which means that we expect students to either be employed in an educational institution already, or be able to secure their own teaching placement - we do not find placements for students on this route.
