Share your love of learning. Use your specialist subject knowledge every day. Help people discover new interests and careers.

Overview

This course is for people who are already working as teachers or trainers, and want to achieve the sector qualification for teaching in post-16 settings.

Further Education institutions need teachers with specialist subject knowledge who can teach people who want to explore subjects they weren’t offered in school. If you have a degree from a range of subjects including non-curriculum areas such as Psychology, Law or Dance, you could be a teacher in post-16 education.

95.3% of our graduates are in employment or further study within six months of graduating, according to DLHE 2016/17 (based on UK postgraduate students).

‘World-leading’ research in Education, according to the latest Research Excellence Framework (REF).

Course Structure

You will spend four hours a week at one of our partner colleges:

  • Sunderland College
  • Bishop Auckland College
  • East Durham College
  • Gateshead College
  • South Tyneside College – a site of Tyne Coast College
  • Tyne Metropolitan College – a site of Tyne Coast College

You'll also attend a summer conference, and an additional Saturday at the University of Sunderland. The conference brings together full-time pre-service and part-time in-service student teachers to share their research into improving teaching and learning. This will be an excellent preparation for your first year as a qualified teacher and an induction to a professional formation year.
