Course Summary

Course Summary

This course provides a straightforward route to a Postgraduate Certificate of Education (PGCE) award for students who have Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) only, or are on a course leading to QTS only. The PGCE is an academic qualification focusing on developing teaching skills. You don’t need a PGCE to teach in England, although you may find it useful as it will give you more options as your career progresses - enhancing your promotion prospects or enabling you to teach abroad.

Your Future Career

If you are a qualified teacher who already has Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), but not the PGCE academic qualification QTS sometimes comes with, you will find this course useful in progressing your career. Unqualified teachers currently enrolled on a programme leading to QTS - for example under the School Direct salaried programme - can also benefit.

Having gained the PGCE (non-QTS) qualification, you might, for example, want to change jobs, or teach in another part of the UK, or even in another country. You may even decide to go on and do a Masters’ degree.
