Course content

This award is designed to allow graduates with an appropriate honours degree to train at Postgraduate level to become a secondary school Design and Technology teacher. You will leave this Teacher Training course with a PGCE qualification. This can be awarded at 3 levels dependent upon performance during the training year, either 30 (Professional) or 60 or 90 (Postgraduate) M level credits, in addition to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), the required qualification to teach in England.

On completion of your Teacher Training course (PGCE) and starting your first teaching job, you can join our Newly Qualified Teacher course and, after your first year in teaching, move onto our Masters awards in Education. Because of your PGCE and NQT awards, you will be fast tracked and can gain a full MA in Education by the end of your third year in teaching.
