Course summary

How does a three-year-old child learn to read? How do you write an individual teaching plan for a seven-year old with dyslexia? How do you manage the behaviour of the five-year-olds you teach every day?On our three-year course, you’ll develop the practical skills you need to become a teacher, such as ways to teach reading, writing and mathematics, how to write learning plans for your class, and how to plan lessons.You’ll also develop strong research skills, learning how to interpret the latest educational research and incorporate it into your teaching methods. This is so you can draw on research to guide your teaching in the classroom, and find new, creative ways to teach a topic or solutions to issues, such as managing behaviour or identifying misconceptions about the way that children learn.Some of the concepts you’ll explore include how the ways our minds work affect our ability to learn, how your personal experiences shape who you become as a teacher, and the ways that children’s backgrounds influence their learning.You’ll go on placements in each year of study, gaining experience in teaching every key stage across ages 3-11 years so that you can teach any year group when you graduate.**Features and Benefits**- **Teaching excellence -** We've been training teachers for over 100 years.
