The skills and knowledge I gained from completing the course, along with the support from teaching staff, resulted in me not only developing as a person but it has broadened my career prospects.

Rather than registering on the PGCE PCET course immediately, in order to get a taste of the course, I completed the 10 week short course “Preparing To Teach In PCET’ which ran for one evening a week. This module also contributed towards the full PGCE PCET award. The structure of the full course, studied part time over two years, was very effective in terms of being able to complete the course content on one specific afternoon / evening a week whilst working around other commitments. I am now lecturering at Aberystwyth University.
