Summary

THIS COURSE IS NOW FULL FOR 2021 ENTRY

If you’ve got an undergraduate degree and aspire to become a primary school teacher for Foundation and Key Stage 1 pupils, then this course will help you on your way. The course focuses on developing the skills you need to teach children from ages three to seven and upon successful completion we’ll recommend Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).

Why Primary Education? * You’ll develop your knowledge of National Curriculum subjects in the primary curriculum with a focus on teaching and learning in the Early Years (Foundation Stage) and Key Stage 1 alongside hands-on classroom experience.

  • We know there’s no substitute for learning how to teach in the classroom environment, so a significant amount of your learning will take place in our partnership schools. You’ll benefit from being able to observe experienced teachers, gain practical hands-on experience and mentoring to help you develop into an outstanding and successful teacher. Your placements will be organised by our dedicated placements team alongside your academic tutors to ensure you get the experience you need.

  • Successful completion of your PGCE course prepares you to start your first teaching post within a primary school.

  • Our course is designed to prepare you to teach pupils in the 3-7 age range with opportunities to develop a comprehensive understanding of progression at Key Stage 2.

Why study with us? * We've been training teachers since 1947 and together with our partners we train over 1400 teachers each year.

  • We work with 140 teaching placement providers to help prepare you for teaching in the real world.

  • While you’re studying at Huddersfield, you’ll be able to access our extensive professional and academic network, not to mention our excellent facilities and specialist equipment, including our mock Early Years and Primary classrooms designed to help you prepare for the real world whilst you study.

  • There are many opportunities for further study with us, enabling you to continue your professional development after training to teach. These include our suite of Education Master's courses and research degrees, including Doctor of Education and Education PhD routes.

Additional costs: Your placements could be based in areas some distance from your point of study, so please be aware of potential associated travelling costs. * A Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check is required to enable you to undertake placements in settings with children. We arrange this as part of the application process. Please note that there may be a charge for the DBS check.
