Course content

You will be prepared to teach 3-7 year olds, with a specialism in Foundation Stage (Nursery and Reception) and Key Stage 1 (Years 1 and 2). This is a crucial stage of children’s education which lays the foundation for everything which follows. Teaching in this phase is both fascinating and intellectually demanding.

The programme runs for 38 weeks which includes 120 days of school-based experience in partnership schools, spread across all three terms. You will get experience from two main school placements and teach in two age bands within your chosen age range specialism (one in Foundation Stage and one in Key Stage 1). The placements are in contrasting schools to give you a breadth of school-based experience.
