Leeds Trinity Secondary PGCE courses provide an excellent start to your teaching career. People do well on the courses and gain employment after completion, often in schools that work in partnership with Leeds Trinity.

The PGCE course is designed in three stages to provide a gradual and supportive induction into teaching and includes two 12-week placements of school-based training. Throughout both placements trainees are strongly supported by university and school-based tutors. Assessment during university-based training is by coursework and during school-based training by performance.
Our PGCE Courses offer an integrated professional and postgraduate level programme. The course is structured so that everyone studies towards the professional graduate qualification (PGCE) to gain QTS whilst also developing their post-graduate level critical thinking. Coursework completed for the professional level course support and informs the post-graduate assignment.
