Study type Taught


This University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) approved PGCE/Certificate in Education (Education & Training) is a pre-service teacher training course leading to a professional qualification that will allow you to teach in Further Education Colleges, Sixth Form Colleges, adult education and a wide range of other training and educational settings. You can study this course full-time for one year, or part-time over two years.

This is one course with two qualification outcomes: the Postgraduate Certificate in Education (Education and Training) is awarded if you are entering the course with at least an Honours degree, the Certification in Education (Education and Training) is awarded if you are entering with another form of qualification such as a Level 3 Vocational qualification. The latter may be the case if you wish to teach in a vocational area such as Catering or Hair and Beauty, for example.

The course is approved by the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) and has run for a number of years. The course mixes theory with teaching practice and satisfactory achievement of all modules is required. If you are offered a place on this course we will have agreed a teaching practice placement for you before we confirm this offer. This can depend on your subject specialism and the availability of a suitable and supportive placement for the duration of your studies.

If you study the course full-time, you will be in College for 2 full days a week and will also undertake 3 days a week of work placements.
