Top 5 Reasons Teachers Study a PGCE Course

What’s a PGCE course ?

The Postgraduate Certificate in Education (International) or PGCEi, is a higher education, teacher training course that equips graduate students to become teachers, and is taught via workshops. The courses offered by Stafford Global are academic qualifications and are not a certified teaching qualification.

The University of Dundee Masters of Education programme also offers a PGCE and PG Dip entry and exit route for its Masters programme.
