About the course

How do children respond to different teaching methods? Does learning outside of the classroom help children to learn? Can educational research influence and inspire the way you teach six-year-olds?

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 1, or Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 (although you will be qualified to teach all 3 age phases). 

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