PCET - Post Compulsory Education and Training
Teaching / Training In Post-Compulsory Education Teaching / Training (General)
This course is for people who are already working as teachers or trainers, and want to achieve the sector qualification for teaching in post-16 settings.
Further Education institutions need teachers with specialist subject knowledge who can teach people who want to explore subjects they weren’t offered in school. If you have a degree from a range of subjects including non-curriculum areas such as Psychology, Law or Dance, you could be a teacher in post-16 education.
Many graduates from this course have gone on to more senior posts with leadership responsibilities in the institutions in which they are employed.
When you graduate from this course you will have a Professional Graduate Certificate in Education. This qualification incorporates the Diploma in Education and Training (DET). You will be able to apply to the Society for Education and Training which provides the recognition route to Qualified Teacher Learning and Skills (QTLS) status through their professional formation process.
For this course (per year)
This course is not available to international students.
You will usually need to hold a 2:2 (or above) honours degree from a UK Higher Education institution or an equivalent qualification and be deemed suitable to train to teach by the School of Education at the University of Sunderland.
