Course summary

Our PGCE in Primary Education (postgraduate and professional routes) will enable you to develop your knowledge, understanding and skills to teach in primary schools. We have exciting partnerships with schools, focusing in the urban inner-city. You will be able to train in two consecutive age ranges:

  • Foundation + Key Stage 1
  • Key Stage 1 + Key Stage 2
  • Key Stage 2 (covering ages 7-9 and 9-11).

You will spend at least 24 weeks across two primary schools, which provides the extended experience you need to develop your professional knowledge and skills. There will be further opportunities to engage in a range of specialist schools and educational contexts.

Careers and placements

Will I have a work placement?

Placements are a core element of teacher training which enable our trainees to put theory into practice in a supportive environment.

We are extremely lucky to work with a wide range of partners across London, Essex and Kent to support our trainees. We work closely with trainees when deciding on placements to ensure that trainees get the best training possible whilst on our programmes.

Our strong partnerships ensure our trainees are well supported and have outstanding experiences whilst training with us.

How long is my placement?

You will spend a minimum of 24 weeks in a primary school, with extended experience in two schools.

Do you provide employability services?

Our services are designed to help you achieve your potential and support your transition towards a rewarding graduate career.

The Employability and Careers Service provides support when you are preparing to apply for placements and graduate roles. It includes CV clinics, mock interviews and employability skills workshops.

Each School also has its own Employability Officer, who works closely with the industry and will provide specific opportunities relevant to your own course.

We hold an Employability Fair which is attended by Partnership schools.
