Course content

UEA’s PGCE is based on the principle that you can only inspire and teach children well if you really understand them. We aim to develop reflective and inspirational teachers, who value and build upon the rich variety of backgrounds and experiences children bring to the classroom.

We’ll prepare you to plan, teach, assess learning and manage children’s behaviour effectively. You will be well prepared to teach across the primary curriculum, and to work with other professionals in the classroom.

UEA’s Primary PGCE has a long-standing reputation as a successful teacher training programme. The latest Ofsted (2022) report notes: “Leaders have designed a rigorous and ambitious programme which supports trainees well to become reflective and resilient professionals. Leaders have carefully considered the knowledge that trainees should learn. Leaders have chosen the course content and delivery based on up-to-date, evidence-based research. They ensure that trainees are learning the most pertinent information to teach using highly effective approaches.”
