Course programme

Course content

The PGCE is a 37-week school-based course, during which time you will work under the guidance of a mentor and receive weekly tutorials to review progress and set targets. It is available in most subjects and to all age levels.

There are two residentials (six days overall) to attend and these are supplemented by a weekly programme on the University’s Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). You will be assigned a University tutor who visits twice to assess your progress and guide your development.

You will be assessed by both your mentor and your tutor and there are three assignments to complete.For teachers undertaking their first year of teaching we highly recommend your participation in our Ab Initio course and PGCE Introductory Day in late August.

This will provide you with some basic knowledge and skills to start teaching.
