Are you ready to explore the many influences on teaching practice? Are you ready to rise to the challenge of motivating pupils to maximise their progress and achievement? Great, we can't wait to meet you!

The one year full-time Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) Secondary with Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) offered by the Swansea University Schools' Partnership connects research and policy to practice. SUSP is committed to delivering high quality initial teacher education that meets the needs of a Welsh education system undergoing significant curriculum transformation. Our PGCE programme will allow you to develop teaching skills in your subject and learn how your subject fits in the new curriculum Areas of Learning and Experience. You will work with experienced mentors in our Partnership schools across Wales to develop, and reflect upon, your own teaching practice. All aspects of the SUSP programme are underpinned by research, allowing student teachers to benefit from the University's national and international reputation.

The programme is unique in the respect that University subject experts, our University Academic Advisors, will contribute to the programme. This subject expertise will not only enhance your subject knowledge but also introduce you to the latest subject specific research. With the Partnership’s strong commitment to wellbeing, you will experience high quality personal, professional and academic support throughout the year.

Subject specialism pathways include:

There are opportunities to study through the medium of English or Welsh.

With partnership schools across Wales and bursaries available for teacher training, start your teaching career with us!
