Career opportunities

On completion of your PGCE and being granted qualified teaching status (QTS), you will work for a year as a newly qualified teacher (NQT). We keep in touch with our former students and continue to support them throughout their NQT year.

A Secondary Chemistry PGCE from the University of Manchester is a valued qualification regionally, nationally and internationally.  You will be given clear direction, advice and support when making applications for teaching posts and our employment rates are consistently high. 88% of our secondary science PGCE 2013 graduates were in a teaching post within six months of completing their course.

Qualified teachers undertake continuous professional development throughout their career, both to maintain the latest subject knowledge and teaching techniques, and if desired, to facilitate progression into leadership and management positions. A PGCE qualification counts as 60 of the 180 credits required for a master's degree and The University of Manchester offers an MA in Educational Leadership should you wish to continue your professional development by completing a master's in the future.
