Aeros Group announces cutting-edge PGCE teacher training partnership with the University of Huddersfield.


The Aeros Group has announced the successful validation of their partnership with the University of Huddersfield to deliver a new gold-standard, pedagogical approach to aviation and education training, designed to provide innovative career opportunities for all those involved, both within and without the aviation sector, and to allow the talents of current and potential aviation instructors to be fully recognised as qualified teachers in mainstream education and top industry training departments.

The specialist PGCE and CertEd courses, to be delivered at the Aeros Gloucestershire Airport campus, provide routes for all aviation-related trainees and professionals, whether or not they have an existing university degree, and are designed to: provide a competitive edge for individuals applying for initial airline employment; support the career progression of existing aviation professionals within the aviation sector; and ensure that successful graduates are also qualified to work in a wide range of non-aviation education and training roles, at any point in the future, if they so desire. 

Applicants will have the option of specialising in aviation-related and/or mainstream academic/vocational subjects, to reflect the highest aspirations of the individual. This course is also available to individuals from a variety of non-aviation sectors, who wish to qualify to work in education and training, related to their own individual field of expertise.

Our University Courses


Not only is funding provided for tuition fees and living expenses through Student Finance but a tax-free government bursary of up to £26,000 is also available for applicants specialising in certain shortage subjects. Individuals may choose to focus on more than one subject, and applicants are welcome to specialise in both aviation training and mainstream education subjects, ensuring the widest possible employment opportunities.

Available Courses


The training courses that will be offered (with the first intake to start in September 2022) are:

• Certificate in Education - CertEd

• Professional Graduate Certificate in Education - PGCE

• Postgraduate Certificate in Education – PGCE(M)

• Postgraduate Diploma in Education - PgDipE

Those engaged in the more advanced courses, will have the opportunity to contribute to cutting-edge, Master’s-level research, focussing on the effect of teaching and learning on aviation outcomes.

The Aeros Group is the only UK CAA/EASA ATO (approved training organisation) within the aviation sector to offer this level of teacher training within a university partnership.
