Post-compulsory and special needs teaching at Nottingham Trent University (NTU)
This Post-Compulsory Education degree is suitable for applicants with subject experience from a wide variety of areas and industries who wish to work with learners with Special Educational Needs (SEN). It leads to a teaching qualification in the post-compulsory education sector.
The awards meet the national professional standards, and allows you to apply for Qualified Teacher Learning and Skills status (QTLS) when you have completed your course. QTLS has been recognised as equivalent to QTS allowing holders to work in secondary schools.
We equip students with the knowledge and skills necessary for the demanding role of teacher / lecturer. The course is endorsed within the national framework for the sector and constitutes the University’s equivalent of the Diploma in Education and Training.
What you’ll study
This degree is offered at three award levels. You apply for either the PGCE or CertEd depending on your qualifications and will be assessed for the ProfGCE whilst on the course:
PGCE – Postgraduate Certificate in Education
You will join this level if you have a good honours degree. You will also be able to study for 60 Masters-level credits, giving you a head-start on gaining a postgraduate qualification. You may join this level from the CertEd.
ProfGCE – Professional Graduate Certificate in Education
You may join this level from the CertEd.
Cert Ed – Certificate in Education
If you have the equivalent to A-levels or have significant experience in your intended subject specialism, you will join the Cert Ed.
The aims of the course are to prepare students to plan, implement and evaluate teaching and learning activities in the post-compulsory education sector and to help students to develop appropriate knowledge, skills and attitudes. It equips students with an ability to reflect upon and learn from their professional practice and builds students’ confidence in their ability to perform their professional roles while creating a sound foundation for further professional and career development.
All students follow a course of study and research which covers an introduction to post-compulsory education; curriculum issues, particularly around inclusive practice; and quality; principles of learning and the characteristics of the post-14 learner; planning for learning and methods of teaching and assessment. Fully integrated into this course is a structured and supervised practical teaching component in one of our partner institutions.
Careers and employability

colleges of further education
community learning and development centres

On gaining the award, students typically pursue a career in one of these areas working with learners with Special Educational Needs or within their specialist field.
QTLS is completed post-qualification and within your employing institution through professional formation, which involves you demonstrating your skills and knowledge in your professional practice. Applications are made by you through the Society for Education and Training and the time frame for completion is determined by your individual circumstances.
