During your training year we also encourage you to study towards a PGCert (Post Graduate Certification). This means that in your ITT year you will spend 8 days across the year at Sheffield University. You will receive high quality training and input from experts in the field of teaching and learning. You will have the opportunity to work towards 30 credits in your first year. In your NQT year we will also offer you the opportunity to study for a further 30 credits. On successful completion of the 60 credits you can either cash them in for a PGCert or you can keep your credit and work towards a full Masters in Learning and Teaching.
