In addition to QTS (Qualified Teaching Status) teachers training with the MSC are eligible to study for a Post Graduate Certificate of Education (PGCE) with M level credits. Currently, MSC works in collaboration with the Bath Spa University who accredit the PGCE element of the courses. As part of your teaching course you will be required to write assignments which will contribute to your understanding of current educational issues. Trainees can opt to have these assessed at Master’s level. In this case successful trainees will be awarded a PGCE in addition to QTS; there are up to 60 M level credits awarded for the PGCE which can be used towards the qualification of Master in Education at a later stage in the teacher’s career.

All assignments are supported by a PGCE tutor who will meet with trainees and provide advice on research and writing.
