This distance learning course from Sunderland allows you to train as a teacher while remaining in your own country.
This course leads to a Postgraduate Certificate in Education and it includes a research element. If you would prefer not to undertake research, we also offer a Professional Graduate Certificate in Education by distance learning.
There is a blend of teaching theory and teaching practice. Topics in the theory modules include classroom management, assessment and progression.
You will undertake teaching practice in a local school, for example where you are already employed or where you have arranged a placement. You will receive feedback from mentors and, if available, tutors in your country.
You will also undertake two research-based modules at Masters level. These prepare you for further postgraduate study and automatically qualify you for progression to Stage 2 of our International Education MA.
The course is flexible in terms of age groups and subject specialisms. You can complete the course in one academic year. This means that you will have your qualification ahead of the next academic year.
The University of Sunderland has a great heritage in education: we’ve been training teachers for over 100 years.
