What will I learn?

Overview

The PGCE in Post Compulsory Education and Training (PCET) is a professional teacher education programme that will qualify you to teach in the post compulsory education and training sector.

This course is designed for graduates with degrees from a wide range of subjects, including those not widely taught in secondary schools (such as Sport Science, Health and Social Care and Dance). It will equip you with the necessary tools to teach adults and young people and give you the opportunity to share your knowledge in a way that helps others to fulfil their potential.

You will be assessed on your potential to learn and not your experience.
