A Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) at UEA, with 90 Master’s level credits, provides all the training you need to teach.

You also get the support you need to thrive in a profession that is both rewarding and challenging.

At UEA, we are committed to supporting equality, diversity and inclusion in the Teaching Profession to reflect the dynamic and diverse nature of UK society, and to offer positive role models for all school students. We welcome and encourage applicants from all backgrounds and life circumstances, including minority ethnic backgrounds and those with disabilities. We also welcome and encourage applicants with other protected characteristics as defined by the Equality Act 2010.

Please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss our courses and how they could support you in becoming a positive role model for young people in the teaching profession.

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.
