A minimum of a 2nd Class Honours degree from a UK university or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard is required, together with strong references from appropriate referees. Participants should be teaching in the UK for the duration of the programme. Before being offered a place, students will either need to attend a group interview and submit a piece of reflective writing or, if already a UCL Institute of Education (IOE) PGCE, GTP or Schools Direct graduate, students need to provide a satisfactory written reference from your PGCE IOE tutor in lieu.

Assessment methods

Teaching is delivered through a combination of face-to-face and online learning. Throughout the MTeach, a stable tutor group fosters the sharing and critical analysis of professional practice, which is central to the development of deeper understanding of subject knowledge and the ways young people learn. The diverse range of assessment opportunities includes everyday teaching duties and includes portfolios, reflective journals and evidence studies.
