Program description

PGCE Education Independent Distance Learning (IDL) at the University of Sunderland is a world-leading and internationally recognised teaching qualification. This course blends applied teaching theory and practice in three taught modules and one extended teaching practice module. The course has been developed so that it can be delivered to primary, secondary and post-16 teachers and to any subject specialism. It is a 36-week full-time course, completed in one academic year. The course can be undertaken both in the UK and in international settings. It must be noted that QTS is not awarded following this course.

However, while this course does not provide a direct route to QTS, it can be used with our Assessment Only Route to QTS, if a candidate is suitably qualified and experienced.

On this programme, two of the modules are research-based and at Masters level, preparing you for further postgraduate study which will qualify you for progression to Stage 2 of our MA International Education or MA Education, both available as distance learning courses.

You can start this course on either 29 January 2018, 5 March 2018 or 17 September 2018.
