Course summary

Course Summary

This primary teacher education course is designed for graduates who are committed to becoming primary school teachers. It trains you to teach the three to seven age range. As a trainee, you will learn how to teach the entire primary curriculum as well as choosing a particular route. The Early Years route is designed for graduates who are interested in teaching children aged three to seven, but this will not restrict you to working with this age group.

East London offers multicultural, multilingual and vibrant schools in which to learn, but your training at UEL will qualify you to teach anywhere in England or Wales. UEL’s PGCE team is made up of experienced practitioners who have worked in a range of primary and Early Years settings across London as classroom teachers, curriculum co-ordinators, advisory teachers and school leaders. At UEL you will be part of a diverse community of students. We want to bring to east London a teacher workforce that reflects the local community and, in 2013-14, 24 per cent of our Primary PGCE trainees were men.

Your Future Career

By working alongside schools and local authorities in our region, we are helping to meet the need for teachers in our local area and many of our students are offered posts by our partner schools. Some trainees have been offered jobs at schools where they have spent their placement. Schools and local authorities have told us that they think our trainees are of a high standard. OFSTED’s 2012 inspection report quotes one school as saying, “They arrive in schools ready to start teaching and are well prepared for the rigours of the classroom.”Backed by UEL’s excellent reputation, you will have a head start when it comes to securing a teaching post. And when you are in a post and decide that you wish to take your academic qualifications further, we can help you to continue your academic and professional development.
