The University of Leeds and its partner schools offer three possible distinctive and high quality routes to a PGCE and Qualified Teacher Status.  All are one-year full-time programmes and all place a strong emphasis on developing trainees’ subject knowledge and pedagogy.  Click on the links below to find out more about these training pathways and which age-phases and subjects are offered.
