Course summary

Course overview

When you work with primary-age children you really can make a difference every day. It might be the moment when a child starts to recognise letters and sounds, or learns to fasten their shoes independently; it could be when they’re inspired by a science experiment and understand chemical reactions for the first time; it might even be the day they finally get to grips with long division! In the primary classroom, children need motivating and engaging so that every day provides a new possibility to learn. There is nothing more rewarding than being the teacher leading that adventurous learning journey.

The 3-7 programme prepares you for those very early teaching and learning experiences. In this role, you will spend time helping children learn through play activities - which is more challenging than it sounds! You will be a key figure in nurturing children’s social, emotional and physical development, as well as teaching those first skills needed to support the rest of their school years and beyond.

Our PGCE Primary courses are one-year, full-time programmes structured in three stages to gradually build the confidence and knowledge you’ll need to become an outstanding teacher. Each stage consists of a University-based training block and school-based training block.

Learning and teaching

At Leeds Trinity we aim to provide an excellent student experience and provide you with the tools and support to help you achieve your academic, personal and professional potential.

Our Learning, Teaching and Assessment Strategy delivers excellence by providing the framework for:

  • high quality teaching
  • an engaging and inclusive approach to learning, assessment and achievement
  • a clear structure through which you progress in your academic studies, your personal development and towards professional-level employment or further study.

Assessment

You’ll be assessed on your subject knowledge in English (including phonics), Mathematics and other subject areas through directed tasks.

You’ll also complete two level 7 Master’s assignments to test your ability to be critically reflective and research-led in your approach to teaching.
