Course summary

If you aspire to become a primary school teacher, our new course offers an accelerated route to completing an undergraduate degree in two years and gaining the requirements needed to apply for a postgraduate teacher training course. Why Primary Education Studies? * The course will help you develop your knowledge of primary and early years education, as well as the essential skills you’ll need to progress towards becoming a teacher in primary and early years education. * The course has been designed specifically to support students in preparation for future employment in the primary education sector, but the course content also reflects the skills and knowledge useful to those wishing to work in education-related roles, such as school management, social work, health and social care, and counselling and mentoring. * We know there’s no substitute for learning how to teach in the classroom environment, so you’ll have the opportunity to undertake a work placement in a primary education setting. As part of your placements you’ll be able to observe experienced teachers and gain practical, hands-on experience in contributing to classroom practice. It’s all designed to help you develop your skills and experience for your future career in teaching. Becoming a primary school teacher Completion of this course does not result in a recommendation for Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), a requirement for becoming a primary school teacher. However, following successful completion of the course, Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) can be achieved through completion of a postgraduate teacher training course (such as a Primary Education PGCE). Please note: This course follows an accelerated delivery pattern across all 3 terms of the academic year. This means you’ll complete the same amount of modules and assignments as students studying on a three-year degree course. 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.
