Course summary

The Early Years Foundation Stage/Key Stage 1 full-time route will prepare students for the award of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) in line with the requirements of the Teachers’ Standards (2012). UCL works in partnership with around 200 primary schools, nurseries and children’s centres to enable students to fully prepare to be a primary teacher with an EY/KS1 focus. Students on this programme will have the opportunity to develop into effective, confident teachers whose classroom practice is informed by an advanced knowledge of educational theory, and who will continue to learn and reflect throughout their careers. On completion of the programme students will have a clear understanding of progression. The QTS qualification applies to the whole primary age-range, whilst a student's teaching experience will be in early years foundation stage (EYFS) and KS1. This programme comprises 36 weeks in total. 12 weeks based at the IOE and 24 weeks based in school experience.

Careers

This programme provides graduates with an excellent preparation for their first job teaching in a primary school, as well as moving on to key stage coordinator roles, other leadership positions and eventually headships. These roles include classroom teachers, mentors to PGCE students, deputy and assistant headteachers, headteachers and educational consultants.

Employability
