I graduated from a literacy based PGCE in Post Compulsory Education and Training last year. I started off working for a private training company teaching unemployed adults and am now working for an FE college. You can either complete the course in-service where you secure employment or voluntary hours yourself and then study for the course part-time or you follow a pre-service route which is similar to a school based PGCE as the uni will arrange your placements for you. I completed a pre-service route which I believe made me a much more competent and confident tutor than when I started my first post. If you complete the pre-service route the funding works the same as studying for a degree, you are entitled to a loan for your tuition fees and living costs and some uni's also offer a grant. If you complete the in-service route you can apply for a £500 grant from the IfL and then make up the remaining fees yourself. Although there are not as many jobs in sixth form centres with a PCET PGCE you can teach for the prison service, FE colleges, private training providers, charities and community centres etc so there are a lot of opportunities out there.
