These courses will prepare you for a career as a teacher – be it in a nursery, primary school or secondary school. On graduation you’ll have access to the wide range of PGCE and other courses leading to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) that we offer. If you don’t wish to be a teacher, they can also enable you to become practitioners or managers within education establishments.
Many of our other courses can also equip you with the skills you’ll need to become a teacher. If you know of a subject you’d like to teach at secondary school level, you may want to browse our courses in that subject area.
Our graduates have gone on to set up their own nurseries, become inspirational teachers and work in a wide range of childcare settings.
“My knowledge in childcare has developed tenfold since taking part in this degree course. The tutors are not only incredibly knowledgeable but also unbelievably supportive giving 100 per cent. It’s because of their support and belief in me that I am hoping to apply for my master’s degree.”
