PGCE - Secondary (Teaching 11-18 years)

This one-year Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) will recommend you for Qualified Teacher Status to teach in secondary schools. We work closely with over 300 partnership schools to prepare you fully for the practical demands of teaching, including the teaching of your specialist subject across three key stages. You’ll be taught and supported by mentors and teaching fellows who have a national reputation for the quality of their training.

By completing this course, you’ll have the opportunity to fast-track to Stage Two of a Masters’ degree, giving you a head-start if you decide to continue your professional development. Many of our postgraduates choose to develop their career through a specialist curriculum or pastoral role, or by moving into management. They may become heads of department, heads of year or co-ordinators of a cross-curricular area, such as special needs or careers education, as well as subject or professional mentors for trainee teachers on placement.
