Early Years (PGCE)


Course Description

Our mission is to provide a well-rounded education of the whole person which is why we consider our programmes to be Initial Teacher Education and not merely training.

The Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) at Liverpool Hope University will provide you with a career entry and development profile that will stand you in good stead to develop professionally through your first year of teaching, as a Newly Qualified Teacher (NQT), and beyond.

As an Early Years Teacher, you will be a specialist in early childhood development, training to deliver the Early Years Foundation stage for children from birth to the age of five. This is a critical stage in children's development

In this role, you will be a graduate leader responsible for organising and leading high-quality teaching practice in early years settings. You will make a lasting, positive difference to children's wellbeing, learning and development.

The PGCE Early Years course lasts 38 weeks, of which you will spend approximately 20 weeks gaining practical experience in Early Years education. Experience is divided into periods of serial attachment (one or more days per week). During these periods you will work in early years settings with the guidance of trained mentors. School and University-based elements of the course are interlinked.
