The Derby programme is delivered through an award-winning online platform. It blends applied teaching theory with classroom practice and draws upon decades of practical, classroom-based teaching expertise and higher education provision.
High-quality, engaged teaching and a supportive, stimulating learning environment will equip you with the knowledge and skills you need to achieve your potential and progress to a dream teaching job or further study for a Master's or PhD.
Whilst we encourage our students to become independent, life-long learners, we also recognise offering the right support and guidance to help achieve your goals. A wealth of support is available to you at the University from your dedicated Personal Tutor and Online Advisor.
The iPGCE is an internationally recognised Master's-level course that can prepare you to teach in different contexts. You will complete 60 credits by studying the two 20-credit core modules and one optional module. These credits can be used for further study at Derby.
"This course has allowed me to apply successfully to a high-level international school. Without it, I would not have made the shortlisted candidates. Thanks to Andy and the rest of the team at Derby for all their hard work and organisation."
"I especially enjoyed the Innovative 21st Century Teaching unit, as this gave me innovative tools that engage my students in the learning process. The course has given me the confidence to take my career to the next level."
