Purpose

The PGCE (Senior Phase and Further Education and Training Teaching) is a professional education qualification, and focuses on developing competencies that the student can apply as a subject teacher in the Senior Phase and the Further Education and Training Phase. The qualification requires a specific depth and specialisation of knowledge, together with practical skills and school-based learning, to enable successful students to apply their learning as beginner teachers in schools in varying contexts. The qualification aims at the development of professional competence, reflexively grounded in educational theory. The PGCE (Senior Phase and Further Education and Training Teaching) is an entry-level, initial professional teaching programme that ‘caps’ an undergraduate degree or an approved diploma.
