Further Education TeachingWatch
I have done some research on qualifications needed to do the job. Most FE colleges ask for PDA/PGCE/TQFE - does anyone know why they ask for PGCE since that qualifies you to teach primary? How is PGCE relevant to teaching in FE?
What about PDA? How is that relevant?
As far as I know, I believe TQFE is a qualification you can get when you get the job as a lecturer in a FE college and is paid for by the college.
You can do a PGCE purely for FE teaching, for example I looked into this one http://www.burnley.ac.uk/course/leve...ducation-pgce/
Here's a bit more info about the qualifications
Hope this helps
