Programme information

We train secondary school teachers in Mathematics and in Physical Education. The PGCE prepares students to teach the 11-18 age range and is offered as a full-time one year course. It provides practical professional preparation for teaching in secondary schools, and is designed and delivered in partnership with schools in up to 10 Local Authorities.

The PGCE represents the first year, and contributes to a half of an MSc in Education with Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), providing an opportunity for students to gain a relevant masters degree during your early teaching career.

Students have the opportunity to be taught and supervised by staff whose teaching and research excellence has been formally acknowledged as of national and international renown and to be at the cutting edge of educational innovation. Many of the staff who teach on the modules have written key text books in their area of expertise.

 

Entry qualification

2:1 degree or above, awarded by a UK higher education provider, or a recognised equivalent qualification.

Careers and further study

The majority of our PGCE trainees have secured teaching posts by the time they complete their training. Schools want our teachers. A Loughborough PGCE gives you excellent career prospects. Our newly qualified teachers have gone on to successful teaching careers in many different schools throughout the UK and overseas.
