Postgraduate Teaching Courses and EYTS


Here at BGU, we offer a variety of postgraduate routes to obtain a teaching qualification. The most common are the Postgraduate and Professional Graduate Certificates in Education (PGCE) which offer an integrated academic and professional preparation for teaching, combining academic study at masters level (the first two steps along the road to an MA) with recommendation for EYTS or QTS. This is available for early years teaching, general primary teaching and for a range of primary and secondary subject specialisms. There are several modes of study for a PGCE including full-time or part-time, BGU-based or cluster-based, salaried or fees-funded. Some routes (eg School Direct) will require you to apply direct to a BGU partner school rather than to BGU itself. All routes include substantial time training in schools, colleges or other settings, with some time spent in training sessions at BGU.

You can register on either the professional (level 6) or postgraduate (level 7) programme. Each programme contains 60 credits and if you opt for the postgraduate programme this will be one third of the way to the MA in Education.
