Course content

TThe Postgraduate Certificate in Education (International) is being offered through a collaborative partnership with the International School of Geneva. The course will run for one academic year.

The PGCE (International) is composed of three modules, a professional module and two academic modules, at Masters level. The professional module consists of a set of standards linked to tasks which the students must show evidence of having successfully completed. This part of the course will be primarily school-based, centred at the Campus des Nations, but with students observing, and being on 'school experience', on all three campuses of the Foundation.

Please note: teaching of the course takes place in Geneva.

Successful completion of the programme can also lead to International Baccalaureate Certificate in Teaching and Learning (Level 1) providing IBO requirements for this award have been completed at an appropriate level.
