Course content


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.


  • 97 per cent of our graduates were in graduate-level employment or further study six months after their course according to the 2014/15 DLHE survey report.
  • You get a nationally-recognised qualification, making you eligible for Qualified Teacher Learning and Skills status (QTLS).
  • We have partnership arrangements with most of the large further education colleges in the West Midlands, as well as prison education units and a number of training agencies and private providers.
  • Full-time trainees undertake at least 150 hours of teaching in their main subject area and are all supported by a subject specialist mentor.
