We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Postgraduate degrees in Adult Education Teacher Training equip graduates to work as educational professionals catering to mature students and lifelong learning opportunities.
Programmes may offer an Initial Teacher Training (ITT) qualification such as the UK PGCE (Postgraduate Certificate in Education) or similar alternative. Other professional development courses may also be available for professionals seeking to enter this area of Education.
These qualifications are usually intended for graduates (or existing professionals) seeking to work with adult learners in schools, colleges and other scenarios. They will normally develop the same general subject expertise and teaching techniques required by other teachers, but will also focus on the specific skills needed to engage with students returning to study for personal or professional development.
Adult Education is an important and rewarding field, with the chance to improve life chances for those previously unable to access secondary or tertiary qualifications. Typical employers include schools, colleges and universities. Alternative career paths also exist in education policy, community engagement and third sector (charity work).
