Helllo,

I am planning to apply for geography PGCEs for 2021 entry and wondered if there’s any universities which have a good reputation for this particular PGCE course?

Thanks for any recommendations!

I did not do my ITT course at this provider that I am going to mention, but I considered it and know several who did it, this is the University of Birmingham's PGDipEd in geography, have an intake of about 20, with very dedicated geography module leader, graduates from there are highly motivated and very creative, they have a very active community twitter account, quite a community. The course is a PG Diploma so 120 credits as opposed to the 60 of the PGCE and the education department is one of the best in the country. Not sure on other providers, but Oxford and Cambridge are excellent as well. I did mine at a SCITT (The OAKS SCITT) with Keele University delivering the PGCE.

Thanks for this! I have heard Birmingham and Oxbridge are good so will check them out

At the risk of repeating myself (I say this a lot), it really doesn't matter where you train to teach. It would be very unusual for an employer to consider this when making an appointment. I'd advise you to train in the area where you eventually want to work. You will make contacts while training and may even be offered a position.
