Careers and your future

A Brunel PGCE with recommendation for QTS is a recognised symbol of high quality Initial Teacher Education. This is demonstrated by our outstanding employment rates over time and feedback from alumni student teachers, our partnership schools and Ofsted inspectors. Many of our students go on to work in our partnership schools and many in schools where they undertook a placement experience. This allows us to retain links with many former students and often they become school-based mentors for our students.

We also invite former students back for public lectures, research seminars, Education events and to be involved in steering groups and research activities here in the Department of Education to ensure they can continue to develop through a community of professional practice both within but also beyond the school in which they are working.

Our involvement in the Initial Teacher Education field has enabled us to develop an extensive network of former alumni who have gone on to hold positions of responsibility in schools across the country.
