Course content

The Early Years Foundation Stage/Key Stage 1 full-time route will prepare students in line with the requirements of the Teachers’ Standards (2012) for the award of QTS. UCL works in partnership with around 350 primary schools, nurseries and children’s centres to enable students to fully prepare to be a primary teacher with an EY/KS1 focus.

Students on the Primary PGCE (EYFS/KS1 full-time) programme benefit enormously from the complementary skills and expertise of staff in partnership schools, EY settings and at the UCL Institute of Education (IOE).

Primary PGCE (EYFS/KS1 full-time) students spend time across the Foundation stage and Key Stage 1 and 2, and they gain experience of teaching across Early Years and Key Stage 1. Students will learn to teach all the primary curriculum subjects. They will also select one subject for specialist study from the range that we offer (i.e. Children’s Literature and Language, English Language and Literacy, French, Geography, Mathematics, Music, New Media and Computing, Physical Education, Religious Education, Values and Identity and Science).
