Secondary courses

Train to be a secondary school teacher, with a specialism in one of the subjects listed below.

Our training will provide trainees with a Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) including 60 Masters’ credits or Post Graduate Diploma in Education (PGDE) including 120 Masters' credits and Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).

The course is an excellent mix of both hands-on training in the classroom (with placements in two contrasting schools) and academic teaching at university.

Placements are available in an excellent and varied network of schools across Sheffield. The schools who we are partnered with will offer high quality training for trainees who wish to train to teach in a secondary setting. This school-based training ensures you feel part of the teaching staff from the beginning of the academic year and you will be supported throughout your training by a subject specific mentor in school.  Each school has a specialised programme of training put in place by a senior mentor which is designed to complement academic input but also to utilise the expertise and strengths of the staff and schools within STTA.
