A recent Welsh Government announcement informed that ALL students studying on PGCE (FE) Programmes in 2012/13 will qualify for £1000 as part of the Initial Teacher Training Grants. Trainee teachers in STEM subjects such as Mathematics, Sciences, Electronics, Engineering, Computing, Technology, Welsh and Literacy will qualify for £3000 as part of the Governments incentives. The Welsh minister Leighton Andrew’s is quoted to say "These incentives will help attract good quality students to train as FE teachers in Wales, and support ITT providers in Wales which run these courses to compete effectively for the most talented applicants.” Start your journey as a trainee teacher today and study towards a PGCE (FE) at Cardiff University!

The 2008 Research Assessment Exercise rated almost all of the department’s research to be of an international standard with 55% of it either “world leading” or “internationally excellent”. This rating, together with the size of the School, places it amongst the top five centres in the UK.
