Months of entry
This programme will prepare students in line with the requirements of the Teachers’ Standards (2012) for the award of QTS. The part-time route follows the same curriculum as the full-time route and similarly enables Primary PGCE students to meet the standards and fully prepare to be a primary teacher. This route is designed for people in part-time work, or with family responsibilities or other commitments.
Students on the Primary PGCE programme benefit enormously from the complementary skills and expertise of staff in partnership schools and at UCL Institute of Education ( UCL IOE).
The schools offer placements for teaching experience, and their teachers serve as tutors, mentors and joint assessors for our student teachers. IOE tutors have extensive experience of teaching, school management, inspection, research and consultancy.
Primary PGCE students can gain experience of teaching across one or more key stages; the Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1; Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2; lower Key Stage 2 (ages 7 to 9) and upper Key Stage 2 (ages 9 to 11).
