Edge Hill is somewhere I’d definitely recommend; not only is it well organised with supportive tutors, but everyone is made to feel like they are part of one big family.

“I had already completed my degree at Edge Hill, so once I realised that teaching was what I wanted to do, it was an easy choice to study my PGCE there because of the University’s great reputation.

Edge Hill is somewhere I’d definitely recommend; not only is it well organised with supportive tutors, but everyone is made to feel like they are part of one big family.

The course has included a variety of educational visits to find out how certain locations can be used for school trips and I’ve experienced two very good schools for my placements. This has enabled me to put my teaching skills and behaviour management techniques into practice, something I know I’ll find invaluable in the future.

My studies have provided me with a great support network that I’m not sure I’d have encountered anywhere else and I think the fact that I’ve completed my PGCE at Edge Hill will be of great advantage when starting my career as a teacher. I’ve found that the tutors are always looking out for you and they are now helping me with my job searches, which can only be of benefit.”
