What we do

We work in partnership with the prestigious University of Nottingham who offer graduates the opportunity to study for a Masters level qualification in education. PGCESpain offer additional teaching experience and training in Spain. PGCESpain provide the essential practical teaching placements for this course in British and International schools across the peninsula and Balearic Islands.

While the University of Nottingham provide the academic component, PGCESpain is responsible for the practical teaching element of our programme and organises placements in International/British schools. Trainees have been welcomed from not only Spain but several other countries around Europe, including: Switzerland, Denmark, Luxembourg, Portugal, Italy and even the UK. PGCESpain is extremely proud of its success, with trainee teachers securing teaching positions in countries around the world and as far away as China and Australia.

Who is suitable for the course?

The course is suitable for graduates who are interested in embarking on a career in teaching, and for graduates who may already be involved in schools but have yet to gain a qualification in education. Trainee teachers are helped through the practical element of the course with mentors who provide regular support, advice and guidance. The course caters for all specialist subject areas including, EYFS, primary and secondary age ranges.

In order to keep expenses to a minimum for the students attending the seminars, PGCESpain provides free accommodation and food throughout the course. Students enjoy two 48-hour university-style residential weekends at the beginning of the course; they have close contact with each other and are able to communicate freely on a dedicated forum, sharing their doubts, worries and success’ in class with the friends they have made during the two workshops.
