Course summary

**Newman University has developed an innovative foundation year for their social science degrees. The pre-degree year of this four year course, if passed, leads into the same study programme as the 3 year joint honours degree course in Studies in Primary Education.**The foundation year enables those unable to access the traditional UCAS tariff requirements for a three year degree, an alternative route into beginning and ultimately gaining an honours degree.**Why study this course?**Studies in Primary Education is a new degree course intended for students with career aspirations in the field of Primary School Education. Although this degree does not award qualified teacher status (QTS) it provides a dynamic programme of study which will offer you a unique platform if you want to pursue a PGCE or school-based training programme in primary teaching, such as School Direct.Studies in Primary Education has been designed in response to the wide-ranging changes that have taken place across the primary phase sector and in teacher education and training. A key feature of the course is that it explores the range of professional, teaching, support and assistant-related roles in primary school settings.**What does the course cover?**Studies in Primary Education provides an imaginative platform for future employment in the field of primary phase education. In the second year you will be introduced to a variety of topical issues that govern teaching, learning, children’s well-being and school organisation in primary education in the UK and other international settings.You will study the complex process surrounding learning and child development. You will gain essential insights into the theory and practice of learning in primary school settings and examine the key characteristics of effective teaching and the learner experience. The course will explore key areas of pupils’ experience, including socialisation, learning styles, creativity, Special Educational Needs (SEN), safeguarding and pastoral care.You will have the opportunity to explore the different ways in which creativity has been defined and conceptualised, and the relationship of imagination to the creative process. You will also consider the attributes of creative and imaginative practice and the environments and conditions for promoting imagination and creativity with children and young people.**How will I be assessed?**There will be a range of assessments on the programme, potentially including:•written coursework assignments•poster presentations•group/syndicate presentations•individual presentations•collaborative investigation•documentary making**What careers can I consider after taking this degree?**This course develops a broad range of transferable skills that are highly valued by employers in a wide range of work situations. A wealth of opportunities will be available to you as a graduate including various roles and responsibilities involved in primary education, such as teaching assistants, support workers and learning support assistants and in wider educational settings.It is important to note that this course does not confer QTS and students will typically undertake further postgraduate training that will lead to a career in teaching. Newman will guarantee an interview for its PGCE primary course to graduates of this degree who achieve at least a 2.1 and meet the other required criteria (including suitable levels of school experience, GCSEs and passing the national skills tests).
