Course summary

Are you looking to gain a nationally-recognised teaching qualification in post-compulsory education and training (PCET)? If so, our PGCE PCET is for you. You'll benefit from our strong partnerships with organisations and colleges outside of the University as well as workshops and the superb support offered by tutors and mentors.

What's covered in the course?

We match your degree subject (in any subject area) to one of the PCET specialisms that we offer:

Arts, Media and Performance
English, Literacy and English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL)
Humanities and Social Sciences
Mathematics and Numeracy
Science and Technology

This means you could have a degree in subject to apply for this course and we will place you in one of the umbrella categories above. For example, if you have a degree in Health and Social Care you'll fit into Science and Technology, or with a degree in Construction you might fit into Science or Mathematics. If you're unsure how your degree fits into one of the categories, please contact the course director, Stuart Mitchell, who will be able to help guide you.

You’ll study a wide range of modules alongside completing at least 150 hours of teaching in your main subject area. Your coursework, assignments and teaching practice will continually be assessed as you progress through the programme.

Enhancing your employability skills

This course boosts your chance of finding a job after graduating because the focus and subject specialism is designed to enhance your employment opportunities.
