Course description

The BEd (Hons) degree is a three-year full-time programme offering professional and academic training leading to the award of Qualified Teacher Status. It is structured to allow you to develop the skills and subject knowledge required by primary teachers to teach the full National Curriculum, and develop specific expertise for making a distinctive contribution to primary practice. School based training will be focused on Key Stages 1 and 2 (5 â?? 11years) but you will be qualified to teach across the 3 â?? 11 age range. Teaching in primary schools is a demanding, but satisfying and fulfilling career, and this BEd degree is designed to ensure you meet these demands with growing confidence. Our students are intelligent and resourceful, communicate well, and have a wide range of interests. The teaching quality and excellent provision in the School of Education have been consistently recognised by Ofsted inspections.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
The stats above mainly cover teaching degrees for training and qualifying in primary school education. These tend to be three or four-year courses – check with course tutors about how long you will need to study to get your Qualified Teacher Status. Most graduates go into teaching roles, usually primary school teaching, so these courses have good employment rates and starting salaries. But, be aware that primary school jobs are in short supply in some parts of the country, so if you hope to teach primary school children, don't expect to automatically be able to do so in your local area - you may still have to follow the jobs. That said, teaching roles are there to be found country-wide.
