Course summary

About the course

If you've got an undergraduate degree and aspire to become a primary school teacher, then this course will help you on your way. The course focuses on developing the skills you need to teach children from ages five to eleven and upon successful completion we’ll recommend Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).

Why Primary Education?

  • You’ll develop your knowledge of National Curriculum subjects in the primary curriculum with a focus on teaching and learning in Key Stage 1 and 2 alongside hands-on classroom experience.
  • A significant amount of your learning will take place in our partnership schools. You’ll benefit from being able to observe experienced teachers, gain practical hands-on experience and mentoring to help you develop into an outstanding and successful teacher.
  • Successful completion of your PGCE course prepares you to start your first teaching post within a primary school.
  • Our course is designed to prepare you to teach pupils in the 5-11 age range, with opportunities to develop a comprehensive understanding of progression to Key Stage 3 and from the Early Years Foundation Stage.

Your career

We know you’re coming to university to undertake your course, meet new people and broaden your horizons. However, we also help you to focus on life after you have graduated to ensure that your hard work pays off and you achieve your ambition.

So while you’re here (and after you graduate) the Careers and Employability Service offer professional help, support and guidance.
