Many school and college departments, both locally and nationally, are staffed with several of our teachers and many of our trainees have gone on to forge successful teaching careers at strategic, professional and management levels at home and abroad.

Our PGCE graduates usually remain in close touch with us as they make their careers in the teaching profession and they often become Subject Mentors on the programme. This creates a very strong, sustainable professional network of teachers which is a rich source of continuing professional development.

Recently our PGCE History graduates have gone on to work as Secondary teachers in many independent and state schools in Wales, England and abroad including (but not limited) to: Ysgol Dewi Sant (Pembrokeshire), Ysgol Gyfun Ystalafera (Ystalafera), John Kyrle High School (Ross-on-wye), Saint David's Catholic College (Cardiff), Pencoed Comprehensive School, (Bridgend), Ash Manor School (Surrey), Ysgol Friars (Bangor), Amesbury School (Surrey) and Ormiston Chadwich Academy (Widness).
