Description

The BA Hons Primary Education with Qualified Teacher Status programme has a strong urban focus, enabling students to take advantage of the university's strong partnerships with schools in contrasting settings, including schools with rich multicultural traditions.

Training takes place through sessions at the university and periods of school-based training undertaken in primary schools and early years settings.

Our primary department staff are well-qualified and experienced primary practitioners. During our most recent Ofsted inspection, the staff were found to be 'generous with their time and very accessible'.

In addition to mainstream school placements, during year 2 of study students will undertake a two-week enrichment placement in an alternative setting. This could be in a setting such as an education department within a museum or a special school. This will give students the opportunity to gain insight into education in the wider context. In Year 3, students will be able to develop a personal interest or area of expertise in the primary curriculum through an option and the final research project.

There is also an opportunity for mainstream students to opt for a mathematics specialism. Students wishing to be considered for this route will apply for the mainstream primary education and register their interest towards the end of their first year, although places are limited.
