I think I have the best job in the world, working with teachers and student teachers committed to improving young people lives.
I experience so much joy visiting schools and seeing what an amazing job our trainee teachers do. I am very proud of all our former trainees and year after year I am delighted to see our reputation grow, that our employment rates are extremely high and that a number of our recent PGCE graduates are now mentors on the course.Rosa Archer / Team Leader - PGCE Secondary Mathematics
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 a range of postgraduate Education courses should you wish to continue your professional development by completing a Master's as you progress further in your career.

The University has its own dedicated Careers Service that you would have full access to as a student and for two years after you graduate. At Manchester you will have access to a number of opportunities to help boost your employability .
