Months of entry
School Direct (Tuition Fee) is a route into teaching at both primary and secondary levels. Trainees join other student teachers on the established PGCE Computing with ICT programme at the UCL Institute of Education (IOE), whilst undertaking their teaching experience at their host school or alliance.
The UCL Institute of Education's partnership with over 200 secondary schools and colleges in Greater London and beyond enables each of our students to become a skilled and confident teacher in their chosen subject specialism.
Tutors on the School Direct (Tuition Fee) PGCE are skilled classroom practitioners with extensive experience in secondary schools and colleges, in school leadership, inspection, educational research and consultancy.
Throughout the programme students will be supported by tutors with many years of experience as classroom teachers, heads of department and subject advisory teachers. During a student's school experience, they will be supported by, and work with, experienced classroom teachers many of whom have also completed our PGCE.
