Course summary

This course is available to teachers who are currently employed in maintained or independent schools in England, or those who have a training placement under the School Direct Scheme, but do not yet hold a teaching qualification. Trainees are expected to undertake a teaching placement in a second school which must be a non-selective state maintained school. The duration of this teaching placement is determined upon interview and is usually for three weeks. The Primary Post Graduate Certificate in Education with QTS is the accreditation that enables teachers to teach in state-maintained and special schools in England and Wales.

The Primary QTS Course is available via two routes- General Primary or Subject Specific Primary (available in Physical Education/Sport, MFL and Music). It is a 37 week school-based course during which time trainees work under the guidance of a mentor and receive weekly tutorials to review progress and set targets. For teachers undertaking their first year of teaching we highly recommend your participation in our Ab Initio course in late August as an addition to the PGCE. This will provide you with some basic knowledge and skills to start teaching.
