Teaching is an incredibly rewarding and exciting career. Here at BGU we have over 150 years’ experience in education and have developed a suite of courses allowing you to train to teach in the way that best suits you. If you already have a degree, a PGCE (Postgraduate and Professional Graduate Certificates in Education) is a course which includes a recommendation for QTS (Qualified Teacher Status). A PGCE offers an integrated academic and professional preparation for teaching and is available for general primary teaching and for a range of primary and secondary subject specialisms, on a full or part-time basis. All routes include substantial time training in schools or other educational settings.
