Our Partners and Team

Partnership is at the heart of the PGCE Secondary programme. The PGCE Secondary Partnership work together on all aspects of the programme from recruitment to programme development to teaching, learning and assessment.

We currently work with six Teaching School Alliances to deliver a range of PGCE Secondary subjects as part of our school-centred (School Direct) provision.  Many of the schools within these alliances also support our university-centred PGCE RE programme.

Details of the subjects we offer with each Teaching School Alliance can be found in the section PGCE Subjects offered.
