PGCE - Postgraduate Certificate of Education
Enhance your teaching career by studying a range of best practice pedagogical approaches on this flexible, practice-focused, online postgraduate course for those working in international contexts in any location.
Why study international education?
With a growing interest in international education, many educators are now keen to learn more about different best practice teaching approaches used internationally, and how to apply them in their own practice.
Teachers with an international qualification are increasingly sought after to teach and lead in schools and educational organisations around the world.
Why UWE Bristol?
This one-year international Postgraduate Certificate in Education (iPGCE) from UWE Bristol is for teachers, or aspiring teachers, in international schools or those with an international focus.
Supporting you to provide the best education for learners, we will share different theories, models and practice approaches.
You will be supported to try out new ways of working, implement different strategies, and evaluate the impact of your teaching on learners' needs in your own setting.
Delivered as an online course, you will study at a distance, supported by UWE tutors, alongside your work.
Because this is a very practice-focused course, you need to be teaching during the course. You will try out different teaching strategies and ways of managing your classroom. We will support you to evaluate your practice and we will provide clear feedback. We will refer to a range of evidence to support this, including videos of your teaching, audio clips, transcripts, photographs, self-evaluation and feedback to monitor and support your practice and progress. Tutor feedback on your practice will refer to the appropriate English Teachers' Standards.
You will need the support of your school/organisation to enrol on the course.
The iPGCE course is taught and assessed in English.
Please note: Qualified Teacher Status in England is awarded by the Teaching Regulation Agency on behalf of the government. It is not awarded by universities and so this course does not lead to QTS, or to the equivalent in any other country.
Where can it take me?
The insights and knowledge you gain by studying, applying and evaluating teaching approaches used internationally will help to transform the way you teach.
You can position yourself as an internationally specialised teacher, which can support your progress into education management and leadership.
Taking what you have learnt into your school will add value to their education offer.
