To apply for this PGDE, you may have a first degree in a Religious Education-related discipline, but this is not essential. We have many successful RE teachers with a degree in a non RE subject area e.g. in Arts and Humanities subjects, Psychology, Criminology, Sociology and Social Anthropology, Philosophy, Law or Politics.
Recognising the many different degree backgrounds of RE teachers, we provide a comprehensive range of individual support programmes before and during the course. These include networking with local hubs; taking part in national projects and online support.
If you want to teach Religious Education, but may have an insufficient level of the subject in your degree to access the course, a fully funded subject knowledge enhancement course offered online by charitable organisations such as Culham St Gabriel’s could help prepare you to train to teach the subject effectively.
