PGCE Open Days and Events
Throughout the year, the University of East Anglia will be hosting Teacher Training Open Days and events to help you find out how you can train to teach in the Primary or Secondary school age ranges. Our events will provide information about university-led and School Direct routes offered by UEA.
Anyone thinking about a career in teaching is welcome to attend - from those making a tentative initial enquiry to those who have already made their decision and are on the verge of making their application.
What happens at UEA PGCE Teacher Training Events?
You will have the opportunity to find out more specifically about UEA's 38-week, full-time, PGCE teacher training courses, and how you will be supported by our specialist tutors who are both academics and experienced teachers. Members of UEA's PGCE admissions team will also be available to offer advice on all admissions related questions.
Gaining School Experience
The Department for Education (DfE) has a School Experience Programme (SEP) to help you to decide whether teaching is right for you – it could also strengthen your application. The DfE website also provides information on how to arrange school experience independently.
If you are an undergraduate student at UEA, you can apply for A Glimpse of Teaching to gain school experience (login required).
