Course summary

If your ambition is to become an outstanding primary school teacher, this BEd Primary Education is for you. The 2017 Good Teacher Training Guide ranked us in the top ten nationally and Ofsted recently graded us as ‘outstanding’ too.

WHY CHOOSE THIS COURSE?

Our primary education team is experienced, dynamic and caring - they are totally committed to your success. The feedback and employment rates we get prove this: Derby students rated their training very highly in the latest national survey of Newly Qualified Teachers and for the past three years, 100% of our graduates have been in work or further study within six months of finishing.

IS THIS COURSE FOR YOU?

Do you know you want to be a primary school teacher? Are you looking for a place to learn which is supportive and diverse as well as high quality? Then look no further.

HOW YOU WILL LEARN

As well as university-based sessions (lectures, workshops, seminars, tutorials, guest speakers), you’ll spend around 26 weeks on placement in a variety of schools, including a special educational needs setting.

OPPORTUNITIES AND EXPERIENCES

You won’t just visit schools; we run fieldtrips to businesses, religious or multi-faith settings, and attractions too. We’ll also encourage you to take part in community projects and charity events. There may even be the opportunity to visit a school overseas.

CAREERS AND EMPLOYABILITY

The regular placements, combined with our expert mentoring, ensure you leave this primary education degree ready to step straight into the classroom if you want to. Many of our students are offered jobs at their placement schools. Of course, you might want to continue studying on our MA Education.
