Subject

Primary education

This course will start you on a professional career that can make a real and enduring difference to the lives of individual children. It delivers the key skills needed to be an effective classroom teacher and an education leader of the future. Our primary teacher education programmes are highly acclaimed by Ofsted. They allow you to develop expertise in how children learn and provide understanding of the full range of subjects within the primary curriculum.

Modules

Your knowledge of primary schooling across the age range will be developed, as will your ability to teach primary curriculum subjects, particularly English, Mathematics and Science. Year 1 covers theories of learning as introduced in the child development module. Closely allied to this is the Becoming a Researcher module, while creativity and cross-curricular approaches are incorporated in the Exploring Learning module. Year 2 introduces you to three specialist pathways focusing on primary pedagogical aspects. Year 3 requires you to choose a study pathway and complete a dissertation in an area of your choice. Your learning will take place both on campus, in the classroom and in other educational contexts such as museums, galleries and the outdoors. A central component of the course will be your work experience in school, supported by school-based mentors. This features in each stage of the course in carefully selected partner schools.
