Months of entry
This is a flexible course, which can take between one and three years, depending on individual circumstances and experience.
The PGCE Primary Modular is ideal for those who are not able to commit to a fulltime or fixed part-time route into teaching, or who wish to have some recognition taken of existing experience as a teacher or lecturer.
Much of the studying is undertaken independently through online learning.
The course has been designed for all students to meet the Standards for Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and provides the opportunity to gain 40 Masters level credits.
The course runs in partnership with schools across the region and beyond. Whilst every effort is made to support students in their preferred school location, where a school is more than two hours’ drive from Canterbury we would ask applicants to discuss whether this is possible, with Hannah Marsh in Admissions.
This course provides an opportunity for you to gain a PGCE whilst continuing in employment/caring for a family/fulfilling other life commitments. It is flexible and responsive to your needs. It gives you the chance to tailor your studying to your lifestyle and to take a very individual route to QTS, whilst providing opportunities to meet with likeminded people from all over the United Kingdom and Europe.
Two of the modules offer the opportunity to gain 40 Masters credits and these can then be put towards a Masters degree in the future.
