Summary

**This is a two year Part-Time Distance Learning PGCE Programme with a focus on the 3-7 year group.**

Northumbria University is a centre of excellence for initial teacher education, this innovative high quality distance learning Early Primary course has been specifically developed to provide a route for students wishing to achieve a PGCE in Early Primary Education with Qualified Teacher Status. It has been especially designed to facilitate students who prefer both a school based and distance based route into teaching and require a longer trajectory of study due to work and life commitments. Students complete the programme in two years.

This Early Primary course is divided into two parts. Both Part 1 and Part 2 consist of: on line study with directed tasks to be completed in an experience school, module assignments and an assessed teaching placement. This is supported by two university weekends and occasional study days. ICT confidence and access to a personal computer with a broadband internet facility are essential requirements

The Early Primary course is designed to support students towards achieving the Standards for QTS.

PGCE Early Primary students gain an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the Early Primary National Curriculum with particular focus on the 3-7 range, whilst obtaining a broad range of experiences. Students will be expected to demonstrate their ability to work independently as a self-motivated distance learner with support from their curriculum and professional tutors online.

This is a route designed for highly motivated people, from all walks of life. It enables them to have the opportunity to enter a hugely rewarding profession. In following this route you will receive an excellent introduction to the teaching profession.
