Do you want a satisfying and rewarding career that brings new and diverse challenges on a daily basis?
Have you got what it takes to make a difference to people's lives by bringing your own personality and ideas to teaching?
Teaching has many rewards including the sense of satisfaction from helping a student to understand something that has in the past confused them, or making connections with those who have previously been unwilling to participate.
Teaching is one of the more stable/reliable careers, with many opportunities for personal and professional development, as well as the option to progress to management roles including head of department, deputy head and head teacher.
Shrewsbury College has a variety of routes into teaching and education, in order to help you realise your aspirations. Our professionally acknowledged, two-year Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) is delivered in partnership with Edge Hill University and is aimed at graduates or those with a suitable Level 3 qualification supplemented by appropriate professional experience. This course trains you to become a teacher in the Further Education and Training (FET) sector for your subject.
The most recent Ofsted inspection (June 2014) judged Edge Hill University’s initial teacher education for further education to be Outstanding. The report commended “the exceptionally high-quality training in further education” which “develops deeply reflective trainees, guided by expert mentors who help them to attain outstanding outcomes.”
For those already working in education, the Foundation Degree in Education provides an opportunity to build on your knowledge and experience and receive recognition through a highly regarded qualification.
