Course outline

The Primary Post Graduate Certificate in Education with QTS is the accreditation that enables teachers to teach in state-maintained and special schools in England and Wales.

This course is available to teachers who are currently employed in maintained or independent schools in England, or those who have a training placement under the School Direct Scheme, but do not yet hold a teaching qualification. Trainees are expected to undertake a teaching placement in a second school which must be a non-selective state maintained school. The duration of this teaching placement is determined upon interview and is usually for three weeks.

Course content

The Primary QTS Course is available via two routes – General Primary or Subject Specific Primary (available in Physical Education/Sport, MFL and Music). It is a 37 week school-based course during which time trainees work under the guidance of a mentor and receive weekly tutorials to review progress and set targets. There are three residentials (nine days overall) to attend and this is supplemented by a weekly programme on the University’s Virtual Learning Environment. Each trainee is assigned a University tutor who visits once per term to assess their progress and guide their development. Trainees are assessed against the Standards by both their mentor and their tutor and there are three assignments to complete.

For teachers undertaking their first year of teaching we highly recommend your participation in our Ab Initio course in late August as an addition to the PGCE. This will provide you with some basic knowledge and skills to start teaching.
