    On the prospectus it describes their PGCE course as a 'professional' graduate cetificate in education. not Postgraduate.

    What is the difference (if any) between these two titles?

    Professional graduate is at the same level as the final year of a standard 3 year Undergraduate degree, Postgraduate also gives you some masters degree level credits.

    I havent even done either yet so I cant say with any real knowledge or experience either way.
    However, they both lead to QTS so I would imagine that it wouldnt be too much of a problem. Although like I said, I dont have any actual knowledge or experience of this, its just what I would hazard a guess at.
