Months of entry
Train to be a primary school teacher with an additional specialism in physical education and enjoy a rewarding career, teaching children aged between five and 11 years. This course will provide training in all primary stage national curriculum subjects, with a particular focus on the subjects of English, mathematics, science and PE.
You will explore established educational theories alongside new ideas, concepts and developments in the field of education. In addition, we will develop you as a future leader in the teaching of PE, giving you the knowledge and skills to promote, shape and develop the subject within a primary school setting.
A range of practical teaching experiences designed to enhance your professional development will complement rigorous academic study on campus. You will be supported on campus by expert tutors who will help to refine your subject knowledge and teaching practice. During your work in schools, you will be guided by mentors and experienced teachers as you put your learning into practice and really begin to hone your teaching skills.
In 2017, we became one of only 25 universities to have their initial teacher training allocations confirmed for the next three years, an acknowledgement by the Department for Education of their excellent provision.
