Course content

The Further Education and Teaching PGCE provides a formal teaching qualification for those wishing to work in the further education sector. This could include a college of further education, a sixth form college or an organisation such as a private training company.
The programme has an excellent reputation and was rated 'good' by Ofsted in our most recent inspection. The programme is delivered full-time through a partnership stretching across East Sussex, West Sussex and Surrey.
If you already hold a degree, it is anticipated that you will graduate with a Professional Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE), and there may also be an opportunity to gain masters-level credits. Applicants without a first degree will graduate with a Certificate in Education.
Full and part-time courses are also available with our partners at Bexhill College, East Sussex College Group, Greater Brighton Metropolitan College, Plumpton College and Reigate College - further details can be found in the course content section.
