Postgraduate Certificate in Education

About the Professional Graduate Diploma in Education Secondary

We offer our students an exceptional training experience – if you’re looking for a lifelong, challenging and exciting career, teaching may be for you. The PGCE Secondary award, with QTS, is available in Art and Design, Biology (Sciences), Computing, English, Geography, History, Mathematics and Physical Education.

You’ll be supported by a range of experienced professionals, both during school placements and by academic staff at the university. The programme aims to help you become an engaging and effective teacher within the 11–16 age range, and provides the input and opportunities that could enable you to teach post-16. Successfully completing this PGCE course will enable you to teach at Secondary age, as well as Primary and A Level.

We were founded as a teaching college 175 years ago, and following the introduction of new quality requirements, our Initial Teacher Training (ITT) courses leading to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), have successfully achieved re-accreditation in 2022 by the Department of Education.
