School Direct PGCE London Courses

At Teaching London we offer you a range of PGCE courses. Unlike university led programmes, our PGCE London programmes are all school led, School Direct teacher training courses.  This means that as a trainee you will spend the majority of your time teaching and learning in school alongside some of the very best teachers currently in schools. You will be awarded Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) upon successful completion of the course and you will also be studying for the Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) which will enhance your knowledge and skills gained in the practical school experiences. The PGCE London course includes 60 credits at Masters Level which can be put towards a masters in the future.
