We are working in partnership with the University of Hertfordshire to provide a comprehensive and engaging training programme that provides with Qualified Teacher Status and a Post Graduate Certificate in Education. Please note that School Direct PGCE (unsalaried) is a fee-paying training course with a fee of £9250. The registration on the programme is subject to the successful outcome of all entry requirements and suitability checks being met.
You’ll train in two different schools and although you get the chance to learn ‘on the job’, you aren’t thrown in at the deep end. You will receive extensive support from school-based mentors and university tutors. You will spend one day per week at the University of Hertfordshire.
