I can find lots of information regarding becoming a teacher for primary and secondary levels, but I can not seem to find adequate information on becoming a lecturer in College's and Universities.

I understand that at University level Research degree's are important, but for both FE and HE, do you still need to have completed a PGCE? What are the standard academic requirments for gaining a job within this sector?

Thank's guys for any comments.

There was a thread on this just a fortnight ago

Check out the prospects link in the first reply there (my first post). I don't know if you've already read it. Prospects gives a profile and outline of entry requirements for both further education AND higher education lecturer.

A PGCE isn't necessarily a requirement, certainly not for higher education. However, as you say, a master and reasonable research background is the usual minimum (although most lecturers do have doctorates)..
