Whether you already have a degree or not, we offer a teacher training route to suit you.

Before deciding which course is right for you it's important to think about whether you want to teach in primary or secondary schools, and whether there are particular subjects or specialisms you are interested in.

Whichever age group and training route you choose, all our courses result in the award of qualified teacher status.


If you don't have a degree, you can gain a degree and qualified teacher status (QTS) together on our three year undergraduate course, combining academic study with learning practical classroom skills. This degree will qualify you to become a Primary School Teacher, specialising in early or later years.

If you would like to become a Primary Teacher and qualify as an Early Years Graduate Practitioner along the way, you could study the BA (Hons) Early Childhood in Society (Graduate Practitioner), and then complete a one year PGCE Primary to qualify as a teacher. 


You can also study on a range of other Education-related courses, for your first degree, and then complete a one year PGCE Primary to qualify as a teacher.

If you would like to become a Secondary Teacher, you will need to complete a degree in a relevant subject first. Once you have completed your degree, you can then apply to study a one year PGCE Secondary course to qualify as a teacher.


If you already have a degree, you can complete a one-year PGCE course, which will lead to qualified teacher status (QTS). You can study for a Primary PGCE or Secondary PGCE.    

If you're interested in working in the further education (FE) sector, then our PGCE FE is perfect for you.
