Course content

The award is part of a new approach to initial teacher education. It is unique nationally, offering the scholarship aspect of the PGCE as a free-standing award. It is an academic postgraduate qualification offering up to 60 credits at Master’s level, giving opportunity to progress to a full MA in Education. It complements and adds value to the QTS professional qualification in England and Wales, or to the CDI in France.

The programme is aimed at enabling course participants to achieve the academic award at the University at the same time as they follow a school-based programme, e.g. for Qualified TeacherStatus (QTS). The programme is delivered either at Keele or in a training provider’s setting by a team of tutors with a track record as expert practitioners in schools and with established names in education scholarship.
