PGCE - Postgraduate Certificate of Education
Teaching / Training (General) Teaching / Training In Post-Compulsory Education
The Post Compulsory Education and Training (PCET) Pre-service is a professional teacher education course that will qualify you to teach in the post-compulsory education and training sector.
This course is designed for graduates with degrees from a wide range of subjects, including those not widely taught in secondary schools (such as Sport Science, Health and Social Care and Dance). If you would like to pursue a career in teaching, but are unable to attend university on a full-time basis because of other obligations, for example, work and family commitments, then this part-time course could be for you. It will equip you with the necessary tools to teach adults and young people and give you the opportunity to share your knowledge in a way that helps others to fulfil their potential. The course benefits from its direct link to the University of Sunderland’s Centre for Excellence in Teacher Training (SUNCETT), one of only 10 Centres for Excellence in this Sector. The course is directly informed by both the national and international educational research and development work of the team.
When you complete this course you will have a Postgraduate Certificate in Education and Training in Post-Compulsory Education and Training qualification or a Certificate in Education (PCET) depending on which route you follow.
For this course (per year)
This part-time course is not available to international students.
For the Professional Graduate Certificate 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.
