PGCE usually means Post-Graduate Certificate of Education but in the Sunderland version, the "P" means "Professional", not "Post". It appears that after completing your studies, you have NQT (Newly Qualified Teacher) status only, and to get QTS (Qualified Teacher Status), you'll need to spend up to a year teaching under observation - possibly in the UK (but confirm this before starting the Sunderland PGCE teacher training course in Dubai if you plan to teach in the UK or at a school which requires a UK PGCE qualification). Support is about normal for a distance learning course, workload is heavy if you're teaching full time also. One advantage is that your teaching practices will be done wherever you're already teaching, with the same students.
