Course Summary

Course Summary

UEL is working with TES Institute to deliver a one year online International Postgraduate Certificate in Education (iPGCE) programme for educators working outside the UK. Relevant to all subjects and age phases, the programme is delivered through an award winning online platform called Learn, where experienced teachers work as Pathway Tutors to support your learning and help you to progress. The course will provide opportunities to explore key aspects of learning and teaching in the context of international school systems and to develop individual practice through critical engagement and research on practice.

Your Future Career

By working alongside schools and local authorities in our region, we are helping to meet the need for teachers in our local area and many of our students are offered posts by our partner schools. Some trainees have been offered jobs at schools where they have spent their placement. Schools and local authorities have told us that they think our trainees are of a high standard. OFSTED’s 2012 inspection report quotes one school as saying, “They arrive in schools ready to start teaching and are well prepared for the rigours of the classroom.” Backed by UEL’s excellent reputation, you will have a head start when it comes to securing a teaching post. And when you are in a post and decide that you wish to take your academic qualifications further, we can help you to continue your academic and professional development.
