School Direct / Postgraduate Teacher Training

Primary PGCE with QTS - University of Plymouth 2019-20


For 2019-20, TTSA is pleased to be able to offer a 'Torbay Hub' model where Primary PGCE  students who live locally or who choose to train in Torbay are allocated to Oldway as the lead school in the Torbay Hub.  Placements will then be allocated in our partner schools in Torbay.


The taught elements of the PGCE would occur on campus at The University of Plymouth, however, all of the assessed teaching practices, 24 weeks in total, would occur in Torbay Teaching School Alliance settings. 


Application is via the UCAS website. You’ll need to register with UCAS before you can apply.
