The Independent Postgraduate Certificate of Education has been developed in close consultation with the Headmasters’ and Headmistresses’ Conference (HMC). Since 2002 it has been offering teachers in the independent sector, who have not undergone a period of formal teacher training, the opportunity to participate in a structured programme of professional development.
You must be employed as a teacher in an independent school in the UK and be in sole charge of a full size class for a minimum of 10 hours a week. You will be expected to have a degree from a UK University or equivalent.In addition, you must obtain the commitment from your school to provide a suitable mentor and show the physical and mental fitness to teach.

We are delighted to announce a brand new Scholarship Scheme available to schools in the state-maintained sector in Buckinghamshire.
The latest funding allocations from the Department for Education place Buckinghamshire schools in the bottom 10% of funding per pupil, and, despite rising cash amounts going into schools, spending per pupil is set to fall by 8% between 2014 and 2020. This is the first time since the mid-1990s that school funding has fallen in real terms.
In recognition of this challenging financial backdrop, the new Scholarship Scheme is offering 20 fully-funded places for school teachers and leaders in Buckinghamshire schools on the following courses:
Up to 10 places on the PGCE with QTS course (Primary or Secondary) or the Assessment Only Route to QTS (Primary or Secondary)
Up to 5 places on the Postgraduate Certificate (Level 7) in Middle Leadership course
Up to 5 places on the Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership (MEd)
These qualifications represent an investment of over £100,000 in local schools.
As a leading provider of school-based teacher training in the country, all of our courses focus on the practical application of educational theory. With minimal time out of school, our courses provide frameworks for studying ‘on-the-job’ and blend distance learning with face-to-face sessions.
The Scholarship Scheme is open to all primary and secondary schools in Buckinghamshire County Council LEA.
The deadline for applications is 1 May 2018, and we anticipate announcing the successful candidates in June, ready for them to start their study in the new academic year.
