These two sides of the degree are constantly feeding into each other as you learn, with the knowledge and theory you gain on campus informing your teaching practice on school placements. Your university-based study will cover both the primary curriculum, building your subject knowledge and pedagogy in preparation for your placements and professional studies modules which give you the skills and understanding to ensure all children in the classroom make progress in their learning.Meanwhile, in your school-based placements you will gradually take on more and more responsibility as you progress through the course until you are ready to lead a class of your own.
