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) and PGCE Primary and Early Years (7-11 age phase)

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 assessed?

You'll be required to have met the Teachers’ Standards by the end of the course which you will work towards throughout your school training.

You'll also undertake a range of assignments at Master's level which assess your understanding of theories, concepts and practice relating to teaching in both core and foundation subjects.

Careers

This PGCE programme produces high calibre teachers with the relevant skills, knowledge, understanding and experiences necessary to enter a career in teaching.
