About this course:

This course will enable you to apply for Qualified Teacher of Learning and Skills (QTLS) via the Education and Training Foundation (formerly the Institute for Learning). Depending on your preference and prior experience, you can either specialise in English: Literacy, Maths, Engineering* or teaching learners with disabilities.

We will thoroughly prepare you for the practical demands of teaching in the FE & Skills sector within one academic year. The course will also provide you with 60 credits at masters level.

You’ll be based at the University for two days a week, where you’ll be taught in our specialist teacher training facilities. For two days a week, you’ll be on a teaching placement, and you’ll undergo a six-week block placement in February. You will also complete an alternative placement in a different setting which you are expected to have fulfilled before the course starts. This information will be relayed to you on pre-induction.

If you are interested in teaching post-14 learners in areas outside of English: Literacy, Maths, Engineering* and teaching learners with disabilities, then we also offer a generic PGCE Post-14 (Education and Training) course.

There is a government initiative that currently provides bursaries for teaching English, Maths, and SEN disabled learners. The amount is dependent on your degree classification. Please see the Fees and finance section for further details.
