Course summary

COURSE OVERVIEW

Train to be a primary school teacher with an additional specialism in physical education and enjoy a rewarding career, teaching children aged between five and 11 years. This course will provide training in all primary stage national curriculum subjects, with a particular focus on the subjects of English, mathematics, science and PE.

You will explore established educational theories alongside new ideas, concepts and developments in the field of education. In addition, we will develop you as a future leader in the teaching of PE, giving you the knowledge and skills to promote, shape and develop the subject within a primary school setting.

A range of practical teaching experiences designed to enhance your professional development will complement rigorous academic study on campus. You will be supported on campus by expert tutors who will help to refine your subject knowledge and teaching practice. During your work in schools, you will be guided by mentors and experienced teachers as you put your learning into practice and really begin to hone your teaching skills.

In 2017, we became one of only 25 universities to have their initial teacher training allocations confirmed for the next three years, an acknowledgement by the Department for Education of their excellent provision.

You can choose from two different training models.

University-led: will develop your theoretical knowledge at our Headingley Campus, which offers a superb learning environment, modern facilities and excellent resources. Your learning will be informed by the very latest research and the expertise of our supportive teaching staff. We will organise your extensive school placements so you can apply your knowledge in a classroom setting and your placements will be timetabled to fit with your taught seminars on campus.

School Direct: For the vast majority of your course, you will be based in your provider school or schools, learning on the job while being supported by experienced teachers and mentors. You will attend our Headingley Campus one day a week (usually a Friday) for key module seminars.

TEACHING & LEARNING

Independent study is a crucial part of learning at university and you will be required to undertake many hours of self-directed research and reading, and preparation and writing of assessments. Your course is delivered through a number of modules, which will help you to plan your time and establish a study routine. Outside of your lectures, workshops and tutorials, a range of support is available to assist with your independent study. Our subject-specific librarians will be on hand to direct you to the specialist learning and study-skill resources. You’ll also be assigned an academic advisor to give you tailored feedback and support.

Our silver status in the latest Teaching Excellence Framework, reflects our commitment to deliver high-quality teaching, learning and outcomes for our students.
