Secondary PGCE courses - The University of Manchester

This course will train you to teach secondary Geography in the UK, including the National Curriculum, GCSE and A level. Completion of the 10 month course leads to both a postgraduate qualification and qualified teacher status (QTS).

Your University tutors and school/college mentors will help you to transform your subject knowledge into teaching skills and educational theory into practice. University tutors have substantial experience of teaching and of examining at a senior level for GCSE and AS/A level.

We also use the expertise of experienced teachers from our partnership schools to complement the teaching of University-based sessions. This includes sessions led by subject mentors, who will help you develop your subject knowledge and provide advice about teaching methods. The University-based sessions will give you creative and innovative ideas to take into the classroom.
