Self-Awareness and Personal Development for Trainee Teachers

Self-reflection and personal growth are vital to developing successful teachers, and the University of Bolton’s PGCE M in Education 14+ training programme is designed to do just that. If you want to turn your passion or specialist subject into a teaching qualification for secondary or higher education, our course is for you.

Focusing on personal as well as professional development, our programme will heighten your self-awareness, giving you the tools to do the following:

Improve self-reflection
Understanding the importance of self-awareness is the first step in personal development. Our course leaders will help you reflect on your own skills, and will provide constructive feedback as you master the key theories and techniques of teaching, learning and assessment.

Create a direction for your career
By understanding your own strengths and weaknesses, you can develop a clear direction with your PGCE teacher training. Our tutors provide one-to-one mentorship throughout the programme to ensure training aligns with your professional goals. Upon graduation, our dedicated Employability Team will also be there to help you achieve your career ambitions. This end-to-end support means that focus is easily maintained, and you’ll have a clear path to success.

Be proactive about self-improvement
Effective teacher trainee programmes inspire continuous learning and improvement. There’s always room for growth and change, and that’s why personal development is vital in teacher education. It helps trainee teachers reflect on their own practice and be proactive about improving what they do, not just now, but in every stage of their career.

If you’re interested in personal and professional development as you study your PGCE, enrol at the University of Bolton in January 2021. Not only are we one of the UK’s largest providers in teacher trainee programmes, but we’re passionate about helping students grow as individuals, supporting them with life skills just as much as pedagogy theory.

Additionally, we are in the Top 5 in the UK for Teaching Quality (The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2020), and the Top 50 UK Universities in The Guardian University League Tables 2021. And students have voted us No.1 in the North West (and No.3 in the UK) for Student Satisfaction in Education Courses in the Complete University Guide 2021.

There’s nowhere better to begin your training than the University of Bolton. To enrol in January 2021, go to our course page for details.
