All Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) courses at Liverpool Hope offer students the opportunity to combine a programme of theory with real world experience. The initial professional development focuses what underpins the work of an effective and successful teacher, while school placements offer you the opportunity to put theory into practice.

We offer PGCE Early Years,  PGCE Primary and Secondary courses through the University taught and the School Direct route (subject to availability).

The PGCE Primary University taught course lasts 38 weeks, of which you will spend approximately 20 weeks gaining practical experience in schools.  School experience is divided into periods of serial attachment (one or more days per week).  During these periods you will work in primary classrooms with the guidance of trained mentors.  School and University-based elements of the course are interlinked. 

For the School Direct route you will undertake work experience in at least two schools where, with the support and guidance of school-based mentors and University tutors, you will apply your University-based learning to the school environment and support of children and young people's learning.

Liverpool Hope strives to provide opportunities for teacher training to all and is committed to encouraging recruitment and supporting retention of trainees from a black or minority ethnic background. We accept International applications for all of our PGCE courses for 2015 entry, please visit How to apply for details.
