The Secondary PGCE programme concentrates on the teaching of 11
- 16 year olds, but part of it extends your studies/experience to
cover preparation for post-16 teaching.
It is delivered by the University from its Hull campus together
with approximately 90 partnership schools. These schools are based
in the East Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire region mainly, but we
also work with schools as far apart as North and West Yorkshire, as
well as schools deep into the Lincolnshire countryside.
Trainees spend one third of their course studying at the
University with dedicated subject tutors, and the remainder is
spent on two teaching practices in two different schools. In school
every trainee has the benefit of both a professional tutor, and a
subject specific, personal mentor to guide them through their
teaching practice. In addition our region allows us to provide our
trainees with the opportunity to gain experience in a wide variety
of school and Academy types: urban or rural, large or small,
comprehensive or selective, denominational, country,
grant-maintained or independent.
We have a highly experienced teacher training team,
dedicated to helping students achieve their
potential. 96% of our most recent Secondary
PGCE graduates gained an Ofsted grade of Grade 1
/Outstanding or a Grade 2/Good at the completion of their studies
Subjects offered at Hull
Subject-based work occurs in the following:
We also partner with many schools in the region and beyond to
offer these and other subject options (such as Physical Education)
through our School Direct
Future proof training
The PGCE course at Hull is always trying to think about teachers
of the future as well as teachers of present and we are sure that
part of the future classroom will be mobile and digital
technologies and that these technologies will impact on classroom
pedagogy. University of Hull trainees are encouraged and
supported to use mobile devices as part of their Initial
Teacher Training programme both on campus and in schools. Find out more.
Funding your PGCE
Training bursaries are available for some subjects for all UK

automatically, but the University has a very helpful Accommodation
Office who will be pleased to help you find you accommodation.
