We know that we’re not long into the new academic year, but we also know that it’s never too soon to start planning your future career.

If you’re thinking about being a teacher, but your current course doesn’t lead to Qualified Teacher Status, once you graduate, you can complete a PGCE or PGDE programme which leads to a recommendation for QTS or QTLS.

How can I become a teacher?
Here at Edge Hill, we offer a range of PGCEs and PGDEs running full-time over one year and focusing on your development as a teacher rather than just on the subject you intend to teach.

What ages can I teach?
You can study a PGCE or PGDE in one of the following age phases:

● Early Years (ages 3 – 7)
● Primary (ages 5 – 11)
● Secondary (ages 11 – 16)
● Further Education and Training (ages 14 – 19 and adult learners)

How do I find out more?
Come along to our PGCE/PGDE Open Evening on Wednesday 3 November, any time between 4.00 and 7.00pm.

You’ll have the chance to chat with tutors and support staff and find out all there is to know about postgraduate study with us.

Book your free place here.
