These programmes lead to initial teaching qualifications for those who teach or intend to teach in further education colleges, sixth-form colleges, adult education centres, art colleges, health-care or community organisations, the public services and a wide range of commercial and voluntary organisations. The PGCE/PCE is endorsed by SVUK as DTLLS (Diploma in Teaching in the Lifelong Learning sector).
The programmes are offered in three modes of study: full-time attendance will benefit those wishing to obtain a qualification before seeking employment and incorporates a period of supervised teaching practice; part-time attendance and flexible learning are aimed at teachers and trainers who are already employed.
The programme covers the skills needed for teaching and classroom management and helps students to explore the theory underpinning teaching and learning. There is also the option to take an additional Skills for Life course in literacy, numeracy or ESOL.

Applicants are advised to apply before 15th July to allow us the time necessary to find a suitable placement.
