What are the entry requirements for a two year PGCE?
You must be a graduate, but from any subject specialism. You are expected to have an established personal competence, perhaps acquired through work or as a subsidiary part of a course of Further or Higher Education. If you have any doubts about your eligibility please contact the relevant provider giving full details of your qualifications and relevant experience. Other entry requirements are as for the one-year PGCE, namely: • GCSE English Language and Mathematics at Grade C or higher (or equivalent qualification); • satisfactory levels of capability in Information and Communication Technology; • An interest in teaching within the curriculum area that is clearly demonstrated. This may be evidenced in a number of ways – time spent in schools and/or colleges, knowledge of the chosen curriculum area and appropriate and relevant practical and/or professional experience.
