Course summary

If you’re striving to become a primary school teacher for Foundation and Key Stage 1 pupils, then this course will help you on your way. The course focuses on developing the skills you need to teach children from ages three to seven and upon successful completion we’ll recommend Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). Why Primary and Early Years Education? * The course content is designed to address the full breadth of the Teachers’ Standards, combining university-based and school-based training. You’ll have the opportunity to gain comprehensive knowledge of the core subjects (English, Mathematics and Science), the seven areas of learning in the Early Years * * Foundation Stage and the full breadth of the National Curriculum. * During the first two years of your course you’ll study a range of compulsory modules covering the Early Years Foundation Stage framework, National Curriculum subjects, professional development and behaviour management. This will give you a broad academic grounding in the essential theories and strategies that will help your professional development. * We know there’s no substitute for learning how to teach in the classroom environment, so we give you lots of opportunity to gain practical experience across our partnership schools, starting from your first term. In fact, you’ll undertake a range of longer and shorter enrichment placements every year. Your placements will be organised by our dedicated placements team alongside your academic tutors to ensure you get the experience you need. * As part of your placements you’ll be able to observe experienced teachers, gain practical, hands-on experience in front of students and benefit from one-to-one mentoring. It’s all designed to help you develop your skills and move on to become an outstanding teacher. While you’re studying at Huddersfield, you’ll be able to access our extensive professional and academic network, not to mention our excellent facilities and specialist equipment, including our mock Early Years and Primary classrooms designed to help you prepare for the real world whilst you study. Professional links and accreditation: Upon successful completion of the course we recommend Qualified Teacher Status be awarded by the Department for Education (https://www.gov.uk/government/organisations/department-for-education). This accreditation is reviewed on a regular basis.Additional costs:* Your placements could be in Huddersfield or surrounding areas, so please consider any travelling costs you may incur.* A Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check is required to enable you to undertake placements in settings with children. We arrange this as part of the application process. Please note that there may be a charge for the DBS check.
