Months of entry
Do you want to help pupils express themselves, to become critical thinkers and develop the vital skills they need to succeed, not just in English, but also in other areas of their education and beyond? Our PGCE in English will develop you into a teacher able to deliver the wide-ranging curriculum covered under English, including Language, Literature and supporting studies in Drama and Media education.
You’ll learn the teaching methods and strategies that will help your classes develop their reading, writing, speaking and listening skills so they become effective communicators.
Assignments and school-centred activities are structured around the development of your School Experience Progress Journal (SEPJ) which demonstrates your progress against the nationally agreed competences (the Teachers’ Standards), which all teachers must meet throughout their career. A system of continuous review and assessment of progress in the SEPJ will support your growing ability to take responsibility for your own development.
Fees and funding
Although this is a postgraduate course, applicants are eligible to apply for the same funding that is offered to undergraduate students (tuition fee and maintenance loans) from Student Finance.
In addition, you may be eligible for a bursary from the Department for Education, subject to your qualifications. More information can be found on the Get into Teaching website.
