Course summary

The Primary Postgraduate Certificate in Education is a high-quality programme of professional education. Warwick's Centre for Teacher Education has partnerships with schools across the region. You'll become a confident teacher and make a real difference to young children's development.

Course Overview

Our Primary Postgraduate Certificate in Education is based on a partnership between us and schools within the region. It is a high-quality programme of professional education, leading to qualified teacher status (QTS) and Master’s level credits. Our course aims to develop you into a highly reflective practitioner, able to adapt and respond to changes in settings and national educational contexts, and able to take responsibility for your ongoing professional development in preparation for future leadership.

From us, you can expect a taught course which will prepare you for the realities and rigours of teaching a broad curriculum fit for the 21st century. You’ll also have access to excellent personal, academic and pastoral support. From our partner schools, you can expect a programme of mentor support and professional training and development, which will complement the University-based elements of the course, and which will support your development of classroom practice.

Careers

Upon completing one of our courses, you will be recommended for Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and will gain 90 credits at Master’s level. This allows you to fast-track to stage two of CTE’s Master’s degree, quickly progressing your professional development.

Career progression may be through taking responsibility for co-ordinating an area of the curriculum or leading a Key Stage, with next steps being a senior management role.

Our department has a dedicated professionally qualified Senior Careers Consultant offering impartial advice and guidance together with workshops and events throughout the year. Previous examples of workshops and events include:

  • Applications and Interviews for Teaching Jobs
  • Preparing for Teaching Job Interviews
  • Writing a Personal Statement for Teaching Jobs
