Please note: UCAS is now open for PGCE applications.

Of the 2016 Primary PGCE graduates, over 97% of trainees were in employment within six months. 100% of trainees from the 2014 Secondary PGCE degree were employed as teachers within six months, many in our partnership schools.

Applicants can now apply for PGCE degrees at St Mary's using UCAS Teacher Training.

In 2015 we celebrated 165 years in Education in south west London. St Mary’s is London’s second largest teacher training course provider, with a significant proportion of our 6,000 students training to teach on primary and secondary courses.

In line with the University Mission Statement, the programme seeks to prepare teachers for both religious and secular schools at home and abroad with special provision for those intending to teach in Roman Catholic and other Christian schools.

Our course tutors are all skilful teachers themselves, with many years of successful experience in the state primary and secondary sectors. They have gained success in managing the learning of students and have built good relationships with partnership schools, mentors and other colleagues, many of whom make valued contributions to the courses in the University.

St Mary’s Primary and Secondary Initial Teacher Education courses have been judged by OfSTED, the government department that regulates teacher training, to be ‘outstanding’ - the highest grade attainable in an OfSTED inspection.

The programmes were deemed to be outstanding for both ‘overall effectiveness’ and the ‘capacity for further improvement and/or sustaining overall quality’ following the inspection, which was conducted in March 2011.
