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 children in the five-to-11 age range. As a trainee you will learn how to teach the entire primary curriculum as well as choosing a particular route. The Mathematics route is designed to give you additional expertise in supporting the teaching and learning of mathematics, so that you will have the confidence to take on a leadership role in the subject in the future.

East London offers multicultural, multilingual and particularly vibrant schools in which to learn, but your training at UEL will qualify you to teach anywhere in England or Wales. Our PGCE team is made up of experienced primary 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.

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. Backed by UEL’s excellent reputation, you will have a head start when it comes to securing a teaching post.

The course is not intended to qualify you as a mathematics specialist, as this implies a level of expertise that comes, in part, from experience. However, we hope that the course will inspire you to pursue mathematics as a strength in your future career. 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.
