About us
The Open University in Wales is the largest provider of part-time undergraduate higher education in Wales. It is a world leader in providing innovative and flexible distance learning opportunities at higher education level. More than 14,500 students from virtually every community in Wales are currently studying with the OU. More than two thirds are in employment while they study.

To become a teacher, you need to attain Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) through an accredited provider. The Open University in Wales' innovative part-time and salaried PGCE routes will qualify you to work at primary and secondary school level, and you can study through the medium of English or Welsh, anywhere in Wales. The PGCE qualification is designed for teaching in Wales and for the Welsh curriculum. The programme is employability focused and will prepare you to enter the teaching profession. As a vocational teaching qualification, it's accredited by EWC (Education Workforce Council) and monitored by Estyn.

The Open University is the largest academic institution in the UK and a world leader in flexible distance learning. For over 50 years, the OU has taught more than 2.2 million students and has over 175,000 current students.
