The PGCE provides a clear, thoughtful and critical introduction to teaching Classics, drawing on leading Education research carried out at King's. We work in close partnership with schools in designing, delivering and assessing our programme in order to develop excellent, reflective classroom practioners.
- King's is one of only two institutions to offer PGCE Classics and the programme has a national reputation for its quality.
- All King's PGCE Classics students who have sought jobs immediately after training have been successful and schools with classics vacancies often contact the PGCE office in advance of advertising posts in the national press.
- The demand for classics teachers is currently greater than the supply.
- Located in the heart of London.
