Course summary

Developed in partnership with schools and early years settings, our Primary teacher training programmes will support you to become an innovative and inspiring teacher.

There are a number of age phases and specialist pathways to consider, through which you’ll achieve Qualified Teacher Status (QTS): PGCE Primary and Early Years (3-7 age phase); PGCE Primary and Early Years (5-11 age phase) 2019/20 options to specialise include: English, Science, Maths, SEND, Behaviour for learning, The Arts, Modern Languages; PGCE Primary and Early Years (7-11 age phase) 2019/20 options to specialise include: English, Science, Maths, SEND, Behaviour for learning, The Arts, Modern Languages.

Our full time programmes last for approximately 40 weeks. You’ll spend about two thirds of this time in a school or educational setting. Throughout the teacher training programme there is a dynamic relationship between your training in the University and your training in schools.

Overview

While you’re a Bath Spa Teacher, you’ll explore models of teaching and the many ways in which children learn. Emphasis is placed on how parents and carers, families, schools and communities can impact children’s learning and well-being.

When you complete your Initial Teacher Training, you’ll be fully qualified to teach, with the essential knowledge, skills and confidence that you’ll need to be successful in the classroom.

How will I be taught?

We’ll help you monitor and track your progress; offering you advice on how to improve your performance as a teacher. You will be assigned an Academic Tutor who will regularly meet with you to review your progress, as well as visiting you during your assessed school training. During school training you will also be supported by a Training Mentor, who is usually the class teacher.
