Course summary

Become an outstanding Primary teacher at LJMU. Graduate with a Postgraduate Diploma in Education (PGDE) and Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) for the 5-11 age range.

  • Prepare for a career as an innovative and creative teacher of 5-11 year olds
  • 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??

As a P.E. specialist you will spend up to 50% of your time developing your area of specialism through a specific module in the teaching of P.E. at primary level and enhanced opportunities both within and across schools.

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.
