GCSEs and Equivalency Requirements
PGCE Primary and Secondary:
- You must have achieved GCSE Grade C (grade 4 on the new grading system) or above in English Language and Mathematics.
- You must have also achieved GCSE Grade C (grade 4 on the new grading system) or above in Science, if you wish to train to teach the Primary age range.
It is preferable to have these qualifications before applying, however, consideration will be given to those which are achieved prior to enrolment. It is your responsibility to have these qualifications in place before you can enrol onto the course.
We do consider equivalent qualifications at BGU, and below is a list of the equivalent qualifications that meet the entry requirements for our courses.
If your qualifications are not listed in the above documents, we will consider equivalency tests taken with the following providers:
Postgraduate and Professional Graduate Certificates in Education (PGCE) offer an integrated academic and professional preparation for teaching, combining academic study at masters level with recommendation for Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). This is available for early years teaching, general primary teaching and for a range of and secondary subject specialisms.
If you have any further questions please the BGU admissions team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The School Direct Training Programme is school-embedded Initial Teacher Training (ITT) in primary and secondary schools across England. All of BGU’s School Direct places will lead to both a full PGCE award and Qualified Teacher Status.
