Why Continued Self-Improvement is the Most Important Tool for PGCE Teacher Training

Are you an aspiring teacher looking for Teacher Training courses in the UK? At the University of Bolton in Greater Manchester, we help graduates turn their specialism into a rewarding career with PGCE Teacher Training. We are one of the largest providers of teacher education in the UK, so there’s nowhere better to study and enjoy personal and professional development.

By building your range of skills and helping you use pedagogy theory to your advantage, we inspire you to seek continuous self-improvement. Teacher training doesn’t end after you complete your degree, and that’s why our passionate tutors will work with you to develop skills such as self-reflection.

Here are just some of the reasons why continued self-improvement is a vital tool for PGCE courses:

1. It makes you review strengths and weaknesses

By reflecting on your own traits, you can identify areas of success and failure. This presents a powerful opportunity to make your strengths even stronger, and turn your weaknesses into new skills.

2. It helps you develop your practice

Teaching is an ever-evolving career, and the best practitioners are always learning. By using self-improvement techniques, you’ll learn to objectively evaluate your own performance. This means you can continue to grow as an educator, even without the support of tutors once you graduate.

3. It creates the right attitude and mind set

Self-improvement training is also fundamental for your state of mind as a teacher. By instilling in trainee teachers the importance of self-reflection, we can inspire their thirst for new knowledge, fostering life-long learners who always aspire to do better.

We believe this is the best way of creating the best, most impactful educational leaders of the future. If you have a bachelor’s degree and wish to teach people aged 14 and over, our PGCE in Education 14+ master’s level programme could be the platform to kick start a successful career.
