PGCE Primary

Event Overview

Interested in becoming a teacher or pursuing a career in education after you graduate?  

If you already have a degree or would prefer studying a different area of Higher Education before pursuing a career in secondary teaching, then one of our PGCE courses might be for you. A PGCE is a one-year postgraduate course that leads to qualified teacher status (QTS). 

By choosing to study a secondary education course at the University of Cumbria, you will be studying at an institution built on over 100 years of teacher training through our founding institutions Charlotte Mason College in Ambleside and St Martin’s College in Lancaster. 

As a student on one of our secondary programmes you'll be part of one of the largest teacher training institutions in the UK - we currently work with over 1000 primary and secondary schools across the UK.

You will have access to a wide range of support including an extensive library of learning resources, careers and employability advice and guidance, and health and wellbeing support.

As a student on one of our PGCE courses, you could also be eligible to receive funding from the Department for Education (DfE).

Join our online webinar to discover more about our secondary PGCE pathways available at our Lancaster campus.
