This level 7 course seeks to train and support student teachers in the field of Post-Compulsory Education and Training (PCET). This includes further education, adult education, work-based training and community education.

You will acquire the necessary skills to work as a teacher in PCET by undertaking practice-based placements as well as course work.

You'll benefit from our strong partnerships, as well as learning from expert teaching staff and professionals in the workplace. We have a national reputation for our teaching education, which prepares trainees to tackle teaching in a challenging 21st century environment.

Trainees learn in a productive, modern and supportive learning environment at the faculty and can take advantage of sophisticated facilities and resources.
