PGCE Post 14

Train to teach at Derby

Our PGCE Post-14 will equip you with the skills to help over 14s realise their potential in sixth forms, colleges and the further education and skills sector.

You’ll have the opportunity to:

  • Study on a course that was rated ‘Outstanding’ in our most recent Ofsted inspection
  • Develop your skills through a combination of practical teaching experience and theory
  • Choose an optional specialism in English: Literacy, Maths, Sport*, Engineering* or teaching learners with disabilities.

This course will thoroughly prepare you for the practical demands of teaching in the FE & Skills sector. It will enable you to apply for Qualified Teacher of Learning and Skills via the Education and Training Foundation (formerly the Institute for Learning) when you graduate.

* Please note that our Sport and Engineering pathways are currently subject to validation for September 2016 entry.

Where will it take me?

After completing this course and obtaining QTLS, you’ll be prepared to teach in the FE and Skills sector. You will be qualified to teach in FE colleges, secondary schools (post-14 only), sixth form colleges, academies, training providers, offender learning/prison education, or in the voluntary sector.
