Course summary

The most recent Ofsted inspection (June 2014) judged Edge Hill University’s initial teacher education for further education to be Outstanding. The report commended “the exceptionally high-quality training in further education” which “develops deeply reflective trainees, guided by expert mentors who help them to attain outstanding outcomes.”

This programme carries eligibility for Qualified Teacher Learning and Skills (QTLS) status. Since April 2012, QLTS has been approved by the Department for Education as being equivalent to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) for schools and therefore there is the possibility of teaching in a school if your specialist subject is part of the curriculum for the given age range.

A PGDE in Post-14 Education will provide you with an endorsed qualification that can be used to teach or train in the Further Education/Lifelong Learning sector. It is suitable for those who are looking to enter teaching in the sector for the first time, as well as those who are already working in further education, a work-based learning setting, the voluntary sector or in public sector training such as the Police, Fire Service, Health Service and Prison Service. The programme will provide you with a wide range of practical skills and the insights to support you in becoming a confident and credible teacher or trainer of the highest quality.
