To choose the PGCE course that's right for you, as well as deciding which age group and subject you'd like to teach, you also need to consider the way you'd prefer to train to be a teacher.

Leeds Trinity University offers three training models that all lead to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE):

University Led Model

All training will be delivered by experts in subject and age phase pedagogy, who are at the cutting edge of educational research and policy.

You'll be placed in schools from our extensive partnership. Our specialist placement team will take into account your specific circumstances and provide the breadth of experience you need to successfully launch your teaching career.

You'll be supported in school by fully trained mentors.

In addition, a range of experiences provided by the university will enrich the curriculum drawing upon the partnerships we have from across the education sector.
