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.
