Summary

The Prep Postgraduate Certificate in Education with QTS is a formal teacher training course tailored to teachers in independent preparatory schools (to age 13) in England. You must be employed as a teacher in a preparatory independent school and be teaching the 3 core subjects at key stage 2 and a chosen subject at key stage 3 for a minimum of 50% of a full timetable.

Trainees will be expected to undertake a teaching placement in a second school which must be a non-selective state-maintained school. The duration of this teaching placement is determined upon the interview and is usually for three weeks.

Course content The PGCE is a 37-week school-based course during which time you will work under the guidance of a mentor and receive weekly tutorials to review your progress and to set targets. There are four residentials (nine days overall) to attend and these are supplemented by a weekly programme on the University’s Virtual Learning Environment (VLE).

For teachers undertaking their first year of teaching we highly recommend your participation in our Ab Initio course as an addition to the PGCE. This will provide you with some basic knowledge and skills to start teaching.
