Whether you’re looking to train to teach or already working in the children’s workforce, we offer a range of PGCEs in early years, primary, secondary and further education, complemented by a comprehensive professional development portfolio for teachers, those supporting teaching and learning, and others working in schools and educational settings.
If you’re a graduate seeking a career in teaching, you can study a broad-based early years or primary PGCE, specialise in primary mathematics or primary physical education, choose from a variety of secondary subject areas, or prepare for a role in further education or the lifelong learning sector. If you’re looking to join a PGCE in secondary education but lack the required subject knowledge, we may have a suitable subject knowledge enhancement course for you.
Whichever age range or specialism you choose, your programme will combine expert tuition with significant time spent in schools and other settings, enabling you to gain extensive practical experience and become increasingly confident in the classroom.
Professional development opportunities include specialist programmes in dyscalculia and dyslexia, accredited by the British Dyslexia Association, as well as dedicated courses exploring learning difficulties, educational enquiry, primary mathematics, mentoring and coaching and teaching English as a second or foreign language. A dedicated programme for newly appointed Special Educational Needs Coordinators (SENCos) is also available.
