Shortlist

Course Overview
This programme will be delivered through a combination of online and face to face sessions to suit your individual needs, subject to us being able to work within the Welsh Government guidance and legislation to ensure the safety of you and our staff.
We will also continue to support those with additional learning needs remotely.
Please note that where work placements are not able to be fulfilled for safety reasons we will adapt modules to include work related projects in a way that will still develop your work based skills.

WHAT WILL I STUDY?
The programme framework outlines an attractive and innovative approach to teacher education and training that meets the current need for accredited teaching and training qualifications in the diverse post-compulsory sector. The PCE is aimed at those with vocational experience who do not hold a degree but hold Level 3 or above qualifications in their vocational discipline. This course is accredited through Aberystwyth University and leads to a Professional Certificate in Education.
