Months of entry
Great teachers make a difference to the lives of every child they teach everyday. Crucially, they have the knowledge, skills and understanding to teach excellent lessons - that have a positive impact on all pupils. The 3-7 Primary PGCE has been designed to enable you to become a primary teacher with an early years specialism.
By developing your knowledge and understanding of research, with an unrelenting focus on what makes a difference in the classroom, you will develop a strong theoretical framework to your practice. Your practice, refined both on-campus and on-placement, will draw directly on this research.
When you train to teach at Oxford Brookes, you will join a course whose graduates inspire thousands of children and lead in hundreds of schools across Oxfordshire and beyond. School leaders know our graduates are well-prepared to meet the high standards expected of them in our schools, with a broad range of on-campus and on-placement teaching and learning preparing them to make a difference in the lives of every child they teach, every day.
