Guide children through their first years in education with our Primary PGCE. We’ll organise placements at local schools to give you experience and arrange study sessions on campus to help you perfect your teaching style.
As a primary school teacher, it will be your responsibility to inspire children, give them the basic skills they need for their future and make learning exciting.
We’ve designed this course to help you understand how children learn. You’ll develop the skills you need to make sure your students get the best start.
Throughout your training, you’ll get hands-on experience on placement, join professional studies sessions, and attend curriculum workshops.
From getting the most out of your induction, to tips on teaching your first lesson, your personal tutor will be there to support you every step of your Primary PGCE journey.
This course can be studied at either our Stoke or Lichfield campus. Please select from the drop-down study options at the top of this page.
