Education and Teacher Training

Would I need to buy any specific kit or materials for my PGCE with QTS course?

A teachers toolkit might include board pens, board wiper, trolley for transporting teaching resources, photocopiable worksheet books and subject specific teaching resources. It is always a good idea, wherever possible, to have additional resources ready while in classes on work placements. There are lots of online resources available, and you will have access to resources on your Moodle, in the library, at your work-placement, or your tutors can make specific recommendations if you require.

If you have any other enquiries relating to this you can contact the Education and Teacher Training Team to discuss, their contact details can be found at the bottom of the specific course page by searching the Education and Teacher Training subject area.

You can also chat with our staff directly every Wednesday from 2 pm - 4 pm and periodically throughout the working week.

Alternatively, chat with our current students who will be able to share this information with you and any other course-related queries.

Or book onto one of our Open Days or Course Advice Days to find out more and speak with the team.
