Course summary

To become a teacher, you need a PGCE with Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). Our PGCE will qualify you to work at either primary or secondary school level and focuses on the curriculum in Wales. You can study through the medium of English, Welsh or a combination. Teaching is online, including live online seminars, with face-to-face support provided in school. You’ll experience teaching in two different schools in Wales (at least 120 days over the two years). Students endorsed by a school participating in the scheme may be fully funded (salaried route); or, you can self-fund and could be eligible for a student loan and/or a maintenance grant (part-time route).

Key features of the course

  • Qualify to teach at primary level or at secondary level in one of a choice of subjects.
  • Progress from classroom support all the way to planning and solo teaching a range of lessons.
  • Link theory to practice while developing your subject knowledge.
  • Choose from two routes, salaried or part-time, picking whichever best suits your personal circumstances.
  • Learn in English or Welsh – it’s up to you.
