Are you interested in a career as a teacher?

Teachers play a key role in inspiring, motivating and shaping the lives of children and young people. If you have the capacity to listen, enthuse, and build strong and positive relationships while conveying your knowledge and understanding to others, then teaching is the career for you.

To work as a teacher you need to have qualified teacher status (QTS). One way of achieving this is to successfully complete a PGCE programme which leads to a recommendation for QTS.

Edge Hill University offers postgraduate teacher training programmes across the age ranges of early years, primary, secondary and further education and training. All our PGCEs are available on a one-year, full-time basis and some can be studied flexibly, which means we can tailor a programme to meet your individual needs and take existing knowledge and experience into consideration.

If you have, or are working towards, a degree in any discipline (minimum 2:2) then come and find out more about studying for a PGCE and a career as a teacher at our teaching information week. You can chat informally to tutors, newly qualified teachers and guidance staff about:

  • course options
  • entry requirements
  • gaining school experience
  • professional skills tests
  • bursaries and scholarships
  • making a strong application

There’s no need to book, just turn up on a day that suits you between 2pm and 6pm. For more details visit our website or email us.
