Working across our teacher trainee network, as part of the PGCE (Professional Graduate Certificate in Education) qualification, ONE serves as a placement setting for part, or duration, of the course. Here prospective teachers learn to apply the theory of teaching and learning in the work place. A PGCE is the traditional route taken by most graduates to start their teaching career.
As an Outstanding college (Ofsted 2015), a placement at ONE will make a real difference to anyone thinking of becoming a teacher.
All applicants will need to have completed their degree or be in their final year of study. PGCE applications can also be made through the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS). The UCAS Teacher Training website is the portal through which you can search for a provider and make your application. Scholarships and Bursaries are available with some courses. As there are different routes into teaching, do use the link below to find out more.
