About the PGCE
Whichever course you choose and however you choose to study, your PGCE course will include the same core elements.
One year, full-time, from early September to the end of June.
Taught sessions link theory with practice and prepare you for your teaching placements and completion of your assignments. Students following the University-led and School Direct routes follow these sessions together at the University. Students following the School-Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) route will follow these sessions in schools that make up the SCITT partnership.
120 days of practical teaching placements in schools (three different placements for primary and two for secondary).
You will be assessed by two 30 credit level 7 assignments with the option to acquire an additional 30 credits.
On successful completion of your course, you will gain a University of Leicester PGCE with up to 90 level 7 Masters credits (half a masters), and be recommended to the Department for Education for Qualified Teacher Status.
