Course summary

The Postgraduate Diploma in Education (English) leads to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and offers 120 credits towards our MA Teaching Studies. Our specialist programme, which offers high quality training and support, will prepare you to teach in the 11-18 age range and is run in close partnership with schools.

On the Postgraduate Diploma Secondary Education (QTS) English programme you will be challenged to develop informed and justified decisions about how you approach your teaching in order to enable you to continue to develop over the course of your career. You may be eligible for bursaries of up to £12,000 (depending on qualifications) in line with the government’s priority to attract more well qualified English teachers.

You will benefit from our unique collaboration with the University of Birmingham School as a wide range of partner schools, including mixed comprehensive, single sex, religious and selective schools and sixth form colleges. These diverse communities we serve will enrich your experience on the PGDipEd English programme. On successful completion of your PGDipEd and your NQT year, you may return to study with us on a part-time basis to complete your Masters in Teaching Studies.
