Course content

We provide a PGCE that combines master's level academic study with rigorous school-based training. We work with a range of high quality local schools to deliver our collaborative course of training and development. Completion of the course allows the recommendation for Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).

The School Direct initiative is designed to give you the chance to learn 'on the job' in a school. You'll work as part of the teaching team from day one. You'll learning from experienced, practicing colleagues and immediately putting your new skills into practice.

As with the standard PGCE, you spend two thirds of your time in schools, undertaking two teaching placements. With the School Direct route your lead school arranges your placements. Placements are usually in schools within their alliance. You can find out more about placements during the application and interview process.
