Education at Brunel: Ranked 2nd in London (Guardian League Table 2019) and an outstanding provider of Initial Teacher Education (Ofsted, 2015).
Education at Brunel offers an unrivalled experience for developing education professional or for your education training.
We are one of the longest established Education departments in the country and leading research centre for work in supportive education. We regularly receive high ratings from the UK's leading benchmarks such as Ofsted.
All our education courses have been developed in collaboration with partnership schools and the National College for Teaching and Leadership (NCTL). This ensures the highest possible quality of provision and relevance in national and school-level priorities in Education.
You'll learn in lectures, seminars, and workshops and by modelling classroom practice. You'll also learn through independent learning, investigation and guided discovery; and through observation, self-evaluation and reflection on teaching practice. We invite guest speakers to contribute to the taught sessions and arrange school visits, for example, to pupil referral units and special schools.
100% of our PGCE Secondary Education students secured posts in schools within six months of graduation (Destination of Learners from High Education 2015-2016).
A Brunel PGCE with recommendation for QTS is a recognised symbol of high-quality Initial Teacher Education. You'll benefit from our partnerships with educational institutions and local schools. Many of our students go on to work in our partner schools and many more are employed in schools where they undertook a placement.
