The University of St Mark and St John will provide you with a complete training covering the entire primary curriculum, as well as a specialism of your choice. Combined with this, the school-based experiences and teaching practices will enable you to become thoroughly prepared for taking on the role of class teacher from the outset of your first post in a school. The University has an unrivalled pedigree and heritage in training teachers, with the founders of the original Colleges of St Mark & St John inventing the notion of a serious preparation for teachers over 175 years ago. Since then, the University has had an unrivalled impact and reputation for populating this country, and indeed the world, with high quality, energetic new teachers. The high quality is still very much in evidence, with the National Student Survey (NSS) awarding us 98% for overall satisfaction for our initial teacher training in 2014. Our recent Ofsted report (July 2014) judged the University Teacher Education Partnership to be â??Good with outstanding featuresâ??. Key highlights are the outstanding leadership and management of primary and secondary programmes, high quality training, particularly in the teaching of reading, maths, behaviour management and teaching pupils with special educational needs, and highly professional trainees who make a positive contribution to all aspects of school life.
Year 1: Introduces students to the primary curriculum and to begins to develop students' skills as a student teachers. At the end of the year, students choose their specialism to study in years 2 and 3. Year 2: Students further their understanding of the many ways in which children learn. Students develop understanding of the foundation subjects and RE, the core subjects and how to plan and assess the learning in these subjects. Students also study some of the important issues in primary education including the inclusive classroom and special educational needs. Students begin to study their specialist subject in more depth and complete tasks in school to enhance their understanding of their subjects. There is an assessed block school experience during this year. Year 3: Consolidates students knowledge and understanding of children as learners and themselves as a learner and teacher, and equips students with the skills they need to become effective teachers. Studies include the identification of an area for the student's own research, usually linked to their specialism, which forms the 1st part of students' dissertations, the completion of their dissertations, and then there is further work on their specialist subject. As part of year 3, we run an annual 'Challenging Stereotypes' conference which investigates equality and diversity issues students may face when embarking on their new careers. The final assessed block school experience takes place during this year. There are opportunities to work in special schools and schools in London, Germany and Cyprus (Service Children's Education).
