Edge Hill University is based on an attractive, award-winning 160-acre campus in Lancashire, close to Liverpool and Manchester. The institution has been providing higher education since 1885, with a mission to create opportunity from knowledge.
The institution’s significant success in achieving its mission is recognised by a range of awards and high rankings for teaching, student experience, accommodation and more. Edge Hill is ranked as Gold in the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF), the government’s evaluation of excellence in teaching quality, learning environment and student outcomes. The University is also one of the select few to have held the coveted UK University of the Year title, awarded by Times Higher Education (2014/15).
Edge Hill University has been at the forefront of initial teacher training for 130 years. Our PGCEs enable graduates to train to teach in early years, primary, secondary or further education.
You can study a broad-based early years or primary PGCE, specialise in primary mathematics or primary physical education, choose from a variety of dedicated routes in secondary subject areas, or prepare for a career in further education or the lifelong learning sector.
If you’re looking to join a PGCE in secondary education but lack the required subject knowledge, we may have a suitable subject knowledge enhancement course for you.
Whichever age range or specialism you choose, your programme will combine expert tuition with significant time in schools and other settings, enabling you to gain extensive practical experience and become increasingly confident in the classroom.
