Summary

The PGCE in English is a recognised teaching qualification aligned to the General Teaching Council for Northern Ireland professional competences which affords graduates ‘Eligibility to Teach’ (referred to in some other jurisdictions as 'qualified teacher status', QTS). The course is aligned broadly with the Northern Ireland Curriculum, supporting graduates in teaching English across the 11-18+ year age range. The programme aims to develop your competence and confidence in the teaching of English and in the general professional role of the teacher.
