PGCE Secondary School Direct (History) / Careers
Year of entry: 2019
PGCEs are a route to train to teach and recommendation for qualified teaching status (QTS) for those who already have an undergraduate degree.
You need QTS to teach in a state-maintained or special school in England and Wales. Whilst other routes to gain QTS exist, they do not all come with the postgraduate qualification of a PGCE. A PGCE from The University of Manchester is a valued qualification regionally, nationally and internationally.
When you study a PGCE with us, we help you prepare for a successful career in education. You will be given clear direction, advice and support when making applications for teaching posts and our employment rates are consistently high.
In addition to this, a PGCE qualification can count as 60 of the 180 credits required for a master's degree, and The University of Manchester offers an MA in Educational Leadership (part-time) should you wish to continue your professional development by completing a master's in the future.
