PGCE in Pedagogy and Practice

Course Description

This is a new award designed to provide those with Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), or those studying on a QTS-only teacher training course, with the opportunity to gain academic accreditation for their professional practice and engagement with pedagogy. Unlike other PGCE awards, this course is not linked to a specific subject or age phase but explores the core expectations of teachers, their ability to plan a curriculum and evaluate impact, and their engagement with the theory underpinning successful practice.

Course structure

We continue to develop and update our modules for 2016 entry to ensure you have the best student experience. In addition to the course structure below, you may find it helpful to refer to the Modules tab.

You have access to Professional Studies sessions at the University, and guidance sessions for key assignments and tutorials can be provided on campus, by Skype, or at your school. All elements of the course relate to your school-based professional practice.


You are assessed through a 5,000-word essay, the presentation of directed tasks, and a portfolio of evidence presented within a viva voce at the end of the course.


The University of Sussex aims to attract the most talented students to postgraduate study and offers one of the most generous scholarship programmes of any UK university. For full details of our scholarships please visit: http://www.sussex.ac.uk/study/money/scholarships/pgt2016/
