A postgraduate certificate in education (PGCE) with qualified teacher status (QTS) will allow you to teach in state schools in England and may allow you to teach in other parts of the UK.

It may also allow you to teach overseas, though you should always check what qualifications are needed in the country you’d like to teach in.

Many PGCE courses include credits that count toward a Master’s degree.

About the course

Our programme is a primary based programme and runs from September - July during term time. Trainees are in school from Monday to Thursday and then on Friday they have a centre based training session. Trainees are assessed 3 times throughout the year against very clear criteria. We offer a PGCE which is accredited through the University of Winchester. There are currently 4 assignments linked to this route spread across the year. All of our trainees from previous years have secured jobs before leaving the training.

Interview process

Interviews are held at different partnership schools and are attended by Senior Leaders from these schools.

It is a 4 part process that lasts roughly 1/2 day. There will be a range of activities that interviewees will need to undertake including a formal interview, working with children and a written activity.

How school placements work

Trainees are placed in 2 different schools. They start in their preferred age group and then in the 2nd term move to the alternate key stage. In the 3 rd term they return to their first placement. Our programme is 5-11, so from year 1- year 6. We have 12 partnership schools that are infant, junior or primary which are situated in Southampton, Winchester and Diben Purlieu in Hampshire.


The course fees for 2020 to 2021 are as follows:
Student type Fees to pay
UK students £9,000
EU students £9,000
