Course content

Study the theory and practical skills needed to teach in post-16 education and training.
The Professional Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) – Post-Compulsory Education and Training (PCET) programme of study is specifically designed for those wanting to teach in post-compulsory contexts such as higher, further, adult and community education, prison education, training and development and vocational education and training.
You will study the theory and practical skills required to teach, drawing on expertise from the fields of psychology, sociology, social policy and education. This programme will give you the tools needed to teach generically, and not ‘through’ your subject, enabling you to go on to a wide range of careers.
This full-time one-year programme is organised into three distinct parts.
Part one: University based learning interspersed with workplace orientation - induction and initial teacher training in preparation for teaching practice.
Part two: College placement classroom based teaching practice.
Part three: Presentation and debrief of professional practice and your learning.
