Course content

The PGCE Primary Education programme has been designed to provide trainees with a variety of challenging experiences with a continuum of university and school work, in order to prepare trainees to become primary teachers and to enable them to meet the standards for Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). Trainees will experience both key stages but opt to specialise in either the Foundation Phase or Key Stage 2.
