About the course

How do you explain the concept of memory? Can you increase students’ understanding of psychological theories through learning outside of the classroom? Does new research influence teaching and learning methods?

Our one-year Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) prepares you to teach the secondary school (14-19 age range) and post 16 psychology curriculum.

You’ll develop knowledge, application and evaluation of different psychological theories and the best techniques for delivery in a classroom setting. During the year, you’ll attend a series of lectures, with topics including how to best teach research methods and statistics, individual differences, psychological approaches, issues and debates.
