Our Professional Graduate Certificate in Education (CertEd/PGCE) is designed for those looking to teach vocational based subjects in a college environment OR academic based subjects such as GCSEs and A-Levels, in a Sixth Form environment.

All applicants will be asked for proof of their eligibility to work in the UK at interview. Tier 2 Certificates of Sponsorship have recently been restricted by the UK Border Agency (UKBA) and the positions we are advertising above are unlikely to qualify for sponsorship. We are therefore unable to consider applications from candidates requiring Tier 2 immigration status to work in the UK at this time. For further information please visit the UKBA website. 

Bedford College is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff to share this commitment.

The successful applicant will be required to undertake appropriate checks as well as providing proof of your right to work in the UK.
