Summary

*Do you want to inspire young people and help change lives? Would you like to enjoy a great starting salary and a rewarding career? Teaching offers all of this. Being able to educate and inspire future generations, seeing young children grow and develop with your help is unlike any other job. * As one of the UK’s leading and longest-running providers of teacher education, we can offer you the best foundation for a successful career in the profession. Completion of this one year course will provide you with Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) from one of the highest rated providers in the country. PGCE Primary at Roehampton will provide you with 60 credits towards a master's qualification.

If you study PGCE Primary at Roehampton you will be taught by a supportive, passionate and driven team of academic staff who are all specialists in their subject areas. Our academic staff strive to ensure you receive the best education and will encourage you to become a confident and successful teacher. We also have a range of support departments to help you with everything from dealing with money matters, to support with your studies.

This postgraduate course gives you the tools to build a successful career in teaching while providing a holistic view of the profession; you will look at the role of the child, the curriculum and the teacher. You will apply to specialise in a pathway for either 3-7 or 5-11 year olds.

You will cover all of the National Curriculum Core and Foundation Subjects, examine learning across the curriculum and the relationship between the subjects in these two groups.

You will study a range of modules which will hone your expertise and effectiveness as a teacher. You will learn how to manage a classroom, how planning and preparation contribute to the effectiveness of your teaching, how best to work with parents and other adults, and gain an understanding of children’s behaviour.

Our subject rooms are set up to include resources you will find in a primary classroom environment. This is important for your full immersion into the school environment and familiarity with the way classrooms are structured, and the type of resources teachers need on a daily basis.

Two assessed teaching placements in our partner schools will provide you with invaluable hands-on work experience giving you the confidence for your future career and a better understanding of how teaching works in practice. The opportunity to review pedagogy in other schools is also provided.

All our academic staff have extensive teaching experience in schools, and many have served in local authorities or subject associations as advisory teachers, as Ofsted inspectors or as consultants. This means that our programmes are based on the reality of the classroom and the education system. Many work at the cutting edge of research in teacher education, which has a positive impact on the quality of provision for all of our students.
