PGCE/Prof GCE/Cert Ed Further Education and Training

What entry requirements do I need?

What will I learn?

This two year, part-time course is a University of Brighton qualification for teaching in the Lifelong Learning Sector (post 14/16 education). It is also widely recognised as the gold standard for teaching.

The qualification is split into two pathways: The Cert Ed is for people who have a Level 3 qualification, but no degree qualification. And the PGCE is the postgraduate qualification for those who do have a degree qualification. Both pathways are taught together over the two years and there is an option to go to masters level in year 2.

This course meets the new Professional Standards for Teachers and Trainers in Education and Training – England 2014

During the course, your learning will be split between, practical teaching activities and classroom observations, with the other half consisting of theory and academic study.

Over the duration of the course you will develop a good balance of interpersonal and academic skills, which are essential to help you complete the course and start your career in teaching.

At the start of the course you will be given a thorough introduction to teaching. Your core modules will help you to understand a range of contemporary issues in education and training, along with best teaching practice and how to conduct yourself as a teacher.

During the course you will study a range of topics including:

  • Introduction to teaching
  • Learning and assessment in further education and training
  • Developing teaching
  • Contemporary issues in further education and training
  • Professional practice
  • Teaching practice

What could I progress on to?

On completion of the course you will have a greater scope for employment as you will be qualified to teach students in both private and state sector schools from age 14.

With this generic teaching qualification, you will be able to teach in a wide area of subjects. Or, with further training you may decide to specialise in a subject area.

Past students have gone on to teach Science at secondary schools, A-Levels at further education colleges and community groups.
