Degree Programme Overview

Instill Education offers the Postgraduate Certificate in Education in Foundation Phase Teaching (PGCE (Foundation Phase Teaching)) programme in two modes of delivery to provide for student-teachers with differing needs, time commitments, responsibilities, and geographical area. Our contact PGCE (Foundation Phase Teaching) programme is a one-year full-time qualification offered primarily on campus, and our PGCE (Foundation Phase Teaching) distance programme is a two-year, four-semester, part- time programme, taking place fully online. The PGCE (Foundation Phase Teaching) is a 130-credit, NQF Level 7 programme designed expressly for the purpose of training graduates in possession of a Bachelor’s degree or appropriate Diploma to become school educators in the Foundation Phase.

The PGCE is the only qualification which provides professional registration with the South African Council for Educators (SACE) for graduates with degrees or diplomas other than the Bachelor of Education (B Ed).

In order for student-teachers to participate meaningfully in the programme they will be required to have access to a laptop/tablet, or other device on which they can complete online components of the programme. Student-teachers in the PGCE (Foundation Phase Teaching) programme will need to complete the following courses/modules successfully in order to receive the qualification.
