Months of entry
Our PGCE without QTS course is ideal for teachers who are studying for, or already have qualified teacher status (QTS) but not a PGCE.
If you already have QTS this course offers you a chance to gain a university postgraduate certificate (PGCE) which includes master's level credits.
The course focuses on educational pedagogy and practice. It is delivered at school training partnerships.
We designed the three modules to support and enhance Qualified Teacher Status training. Each module focuses on particular aspects of professional practice. We also help you to become a reflective practitioner and an enquiring professional.
NB: The PGCE without QTS does not in itself confer QTS.
