At the University of Exeter we have more than 165 years of experience in Education and offer a wide range of programmes including our highly regarded Initial Teacher Training (PGCE). Our Techer Training programmes are consistently graded Outstanding by OFSTED, and we are ranked 3rd amongst university providers of initial teacher training in the Good Teacher Training Guide 2017.

Our PGCE is uniquely characterised by innovative research-led teaching informed by professional practice and academic excellence. All our tutors have real-world experience as teachers, senior managers or OFSTED inspectors. They also lead and innovate, developing the latest ideas in teacher education, leading research, writing textbooks, leading subject networks and advising government.

The University of Exeter is one of the largest PGCE providers in the UK providing a fantastic choice of primary and secondary PGCE programmes.

We also provide unrivalled opportunities through our PGCE teaching model, which is praised by OFSTED and cited as an example of best practice. By learning on campus for most of the first term, you access the tools to rapidly build professional knowledge to underpin your work in school placements. Watch our video below to discover more.
