Course summary

Our popular Foundation Degree in Teaching and Learning Support (Primary) is recognised by Head teachers and Governors alike as a successful, relevant qualification that impacts positively on teaching and learning in schools. This degree can be studied as a 2 year full-time Lancaster University validated foundation degree designed as a professional development qualification for Primary School Teaching Assistants who want to further their understanding, knowledge and skills across the ever-changing primary curriculum.Students taking part on the course may get involved in a range of trips and activities. Past students have enjoyed trips to a Steiner School near York looking at alternative philosophies of teaching and learning. Students on the course also take part in a range of team building activities and socialise as a group at organised events - this helps you to learn from colleagues and other students in both informal as well as formal settings.You must have secured a signed agreement of a Head teacher to accept you for a placement in a Primary Class for at least 45 days (full-time) and an up-to-date DBS certificateAs well as your placement, you will be able to take part in a 2 day placement in a different primary school. Our students often tell us this is a valuable insight into the way that different primary schools operate. All staff teaching on the course are former or existing Primary school practitioners who are able to bring a wealth of valuable experience, real-life examples and case studies into the classroom.
