Course summary

Become an outstanding Primary teacher at LJMU. Graduate with a Postgraduate Diploma in Education (PGDE) and Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) for the 3-7 age range.

  • Prepare for a career as an innovative and creative teacher of 3-7
  • Enjoy placements supported by excellent teacher mentors
  • Qualify with a Postgraduate Diploma in Education featuring 120 Masters-level credits (ours is one of the few ITT courses to offer this) and Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) for the same cost and length of study as a PGCE
  • Spend 120 days on school placement, predominantly in a ƒ??Home Schoolƒ??
  • Go on to complete your MA in your first year of employment and look forward to excellent career development opportunities

Our emphasis is on developing teachers who will examine, analyse, research and reflect on their practice to provide the very best and most appropriate learning opportunities for all children. By completing Nursery, Reception and Key Stage 1 placements, in different settings and socio-economic contexts, you will gain a greater understanding of Early Years teaching and learning. The course has a strong commitment to outdoor learning. We have links with Forest School practitioners and strive to enable all trainees to experience this aspect of Early Years practice.

Our PGDE Primary programmes are designed to prepare you for a career as an innovative and creative teacher. You will be trained by highly experienced academic staff and school mentors.

At Foundation level our philosophy centres around a commitment to learning and teaching through play and interaction. This should not be seen as a ƒ??soft optionƒ??, but as a challenging and rigorous approach, which requires high level planning, organisation, intervention and assessment.
