We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Tertiary Education Teacher Training equip postgraduates with the skills to impart, explain and disseminate knowledge, skills and learning to individuals in sixth forms, colleges and other further education environments.
Initial Teacher Training (ITT) courses such as the UK PGCE (Postgraduate Certificate in Education) are typical for this area, though shorter Postgraduate Diploma and Certificate programmes are also available.
Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in the subject you wish to choose, as well as a minimum Grade C in English and Maths.
Depending on your interests and professional goals, courses in this field allow you to specialise in teaching within a range of Tertiary Education institutions. This can include sixth form schools, independent colleges, nursing schools, community colleges and technical training institutes.
You will explore methodologies appropriate to the subject you wish to teach, and engage with the current curriculum and regulation standards. This is typically includes undertaking a professional placement to advance your knowledge and experience.
As well as traditional teaching roles, your experience may also make you suitable for teaching within research centres, centres of excellence and distance learning organisations. For roles in Higher Education, PhD study may be the next suitable step.
