Course content

This course prepares you to teach in a Foundation Stage/ Key Stage 1 setting (3-7 years) and will reflect the early years and primary curriculum. You will gain thorough knowledge and understanding of a range of teaching, learning and assessment strategies, and learn how to use and adapt them to meet the varying needs of the youngest learners. The focus of the course is split between university-based studies and two block school placements, so you will develop both the theoretical knowledge and practical experience required for a successful career in teaching.
