This PGCE gives you a large amount of first-hand classroom experience which is probably the best way to set you up for your full-time role once qualified.
The course has allowed me to make a smooth transition from trainee to qualified. As a cohort, we developed a strong bond with one another that has continued beyond the course. We have been able to support and learn from one another over the year.Harvey Williams / PGCE Graduate and teacher of Economics and Business Studies
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.
