Course summary

The Professional Graduate Certificate in Post Compulsory Education and Training (PcET) qualifies you to teach in the further, adult and vocational education sector. It is a full, nationally-recognised teaching qualification, specifically designed for those aiming to teach a vocational subject in areas such as Business, Health and Social Care, Media and IT.

The University of South Wales at Newport has led the field in vocational teacher education in Wales for many years, on our campus in Caerleon, in our partner FE colleges and more recently in our riverside campus in the centre of Newport.

The course aims to develop student teachers

  • who are new to social sciences discourse (e.g. artists, engineers, performers)
  • who may later be interested in pursuing Master’s study in their own subject discipline
  • whose writing is not yet at Master’s level (assessed during application)

You would need to hold a level 6 qualification in their teaching subject area, along with one or more year’s vocational experience in their teaching subject (where relevant). Once with us, you will develop skills, confidence and understanding of learning, teaching and assessment in your subject.

Assessment

There are no exams, assessment is 100% coursework. You are assessed in many different ways including practical and interactive activities, as well as written coursework.

Careers

Our graduates have a proven track record of moving into fulltime and permanent teaching posts

This course will help you develop confidence and skills in working with a range of people and using the latest technology and media. It will also prepare you for further study.

After completing the course, you could have a career as a PcET practitioner within the Post Compulsory Education and Training sector, e.g. Further Education (FE), Training Providers, Adult and Community Learning and Work Based Learning.

Recent graduates have gained full and part time employment across the sector and many of our past graduates actively support the course as mentors for our new student teachers.
