It’s often said that teaching is a calling. But it is also a path of continual growth and personal development, which demands hard work but is equally rewarding. The School of Education builds on the reputation and tradition established by its predecessor Akcent College, founded in 2008, by offering progressive learning, centred on teaching practice. The programmes are fully accredited by the Czech Ministry of Education, Youth & Sport and are led by skilled and dedicated educators in a supportive, international environment. 

As an English Teacher, you have a passion for language and communication, and the drive to help others to learn and have a voice in the world. You will leave PCU fully qualified to start a career teaching English at Czech state secondary schools and at language schools internationally.

A letter from the Dean of the School of Education

The mission of the School of Education at PCU is to prepare students to be professional educators of children, youth and adults, and to become valuable members of today's diverse society. Our primary goal is to equip student teachers with the strategies, knowledge and skills to effectively fulfil this mission. Importantly, our approach is based on a combination of theory and practice of disciplines in applied pedagogy.

The School of Education is a recent development, whose first phase will be broadly determined by the traditions and practices of Akcent College, the (Prague-based) teacher-training establishment incorporated into PCU in 2020.

The Bc. programme prepares our students to teach a foreign language to adults in a modern, lively and effective way. The programme focuses both on English as a specialization and the disciplines related to communication in this language, as well as linguo-didactic training and teaching practice.

Thanks to long-standing cooperation with Akcent International House in Prague, students studying for the Bc. degree at PCU enjoy preferential terms when applying for the Cambridge CELTA certificate, the global standard for teaching English as a foreign language.

Michaela Furiaková

I can highly recommend PCU. I specialised in pedagogy and English as a foreign language in combined study. I passed my state exams and was completely prepared for teaching. After obtaining my Bachelor’s degree I pursued my Master’s at UJEP. While studying I started teaching at a grammar school in my home town where I still teach. The School of Education uses new, modern and truly motivating methods. The semesters of didactics were very time consuming, but I used all the materials in class and these methods were extremely useful to me in my follow-up studies at UJEP. I can say with a clear conscience that the School of Education has advanced my teaching skills the most during my career. It was a challenging programme, but incredibly practical and I still remember the content that I studied.

Veronika Nebeská

I spent time in the UK and USA as an au-pair and when I returned to the Czech Republic I began teaching English at a private language school which I didn’t feel properly qualified for. I chose to study English as a foreign language at PCU which hugely advanced my skills and professional career. I was really "forced" to work on my knowledge of English, and on the other subjects connected to language teaching. It wasn’t easy but it definitely improved my abilities not only with speaking and writing but especially in language teaching, which was something that I’ve always dreamed of. I also saw great benefit in the extensive teaching practice that each of us went through and during our studies we also had the possibility to earn a Cambridge International Certificate. Classes take place in a real language school under the guidance of experts and are run in smaller groups which allowed for "closer" contact between the lecturers and students. Now I work as an English teacher at my local primary school. I teach children in age 8-15 which in the time of Covid-19 is very challenging, but I still love it!
