A Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE), with 90 Master’s level credits, at UEA, provides the training you need to teach and the support you need to thrive in a profession that is both rewarding and challenging.

UNIVERSITY-LED OR SCHOOL DIRECT

With us, you can choose to study for your PGCE through either our university-led or School Direct routes. The taught programme is the same for both and you will spend the same amount of time gaining classroom experience, whichever route you choose.  

Both university-led and School Direct trainees complete the PGCE with 90 Master’s level credits.
