PGCE applicants are required to have an enhanced Disclosure Barring Service check which needs to be paid for before the start of the course. This will cost £52.20.
Costs incurred during School Experience
Over the duration of your course you will spend 24 weeks on placement. These school experiences are organised in our partnership schools which extend across West Sussex, Hampshire and Isle of Wight and into Surrey. Travel to placements, which can be by car or public transport, varies but your commute will not usually exceed 40 miles from your term time address to the placement school (assuming your term time address is within our partnership area).
Students not in receipt of a government bursary may receive a contribution towards travel costs depending upon the distance.
Whilst on School Experience appropriate professional dress will be required.
Students may wish to purchase a laptop/tablet to use whilst on school experience as schools are not required to provide these.
