Description

If you’re looking for a rewarding career where you can make a positive difference to other people’s lives, teaching is a great choice – and on our PGCE courses, you’ll gain you the skills and confidence you need to become an outstanding secondary school teacher.

On this 1-year course, you’ll be supported by our tutors and school-based mentors as you learn to plan and deliver lessons with strong subject knowledge, confidence and imagination, while reflecting on what it means to teach.

Our teacher training programmes have been given an outstanding review from Ofsted and we’ve got excellent links with many schools in the region – so when you finish your course, you’ll graduate with excellent career prospects, and eligibility for Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) too.
