Inspirational teachers really do change lives; influencing and shaping a learner’s education and subsequent career. Teaching is a rewarding profession and as a teacher you may choose to work in either the public or private sector with in-house training, private tuition and consultation opportunities available.

Whether you are looking to enter the teaching profession as a first career, or wish to use your skills from a previous profession to bring added value to the classroom, you will need excellent communication, organisation and interpersonal skills.

At Preston College we offer the Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) and the Certificate in Education. Regardless of your chosen programme, you can expect to be taught through practical workshops, specialist speakers and classroom based activities that go hand-in-hand with teaching practice. Both courses are ideal for those looking to teach in the post-14 sector, with the PGCE offering a route into the teaching profession for those already holding a relevant undergraduate degree.
