This programme is now full and not accepting applications for 2023 entry. However, some places for 2023 entry may be available via our School Direct Route. Applications for September 2024 will open in October.
This course will give you everything you need to face the classroom, both the pedagogical theory and the practical skills to be an inspiring teacher.
Our gradual immersion approach will introduce you to the classroom progressively, from one pupil to the whole class.
Placement in very diverse, carefully chosen schools will allow you to learn from different contexts and be prepared to teach in any school.
With a PGCE you can start teaching as soon as you complete the course and are recommended for Qualified Teacher Status.
