Basically, in a few years I plan to do a PGCE course in higher education in order to teach in College's rather than a University.

Where I live and am studying there is a college nearby which does a full-time PGCE course, which I prefer due to it's quickness. However in my University they do a part-time PGCE course. (Mind you I'm just beggining to do research on them both so don't know which one is better employability wise)

Does it matter if I get my PGCE in College compared to the University? Would it affect my employability?

No, it definitely does not matter. No school is going to care where you did your PGCE.

Is that so? I only asked the question cause my dad who's a uni professor said that that may be a possibility I won't get employed if I do the PGCE in a college compared to a UNI

I'm not sure what your dad thinks that, but he is mistaken. If you want to ask other teachers/PGCE students then look in the Education and Teaching forum.
