About the course

Our one-year Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) prepares you to teach the primary curriculum. 

You will gain experience in teaching across the various key stages so that you are confident in teaching any year group. You can choose to focus on the early years and key stage one, or key stage one and key stage two. 

You will have taught sessions at university (around 10 weeks over the year) and will normally spend a minimum of 120 days on placements in schools. 

When you’re at Manchester Met, you’ll learn teaching methods and organisational skills, and how to apply your knowledge in the classroom. Some of the skills you’ll learn include how to plan lessons, assess learning and how to manage children’s behaviour.
