Course content

This primary teacher education course is designed for graduates who are committed to becoming primary school teachers. It trains you to teach children in the five-to-11 age range.

As a trainee, you will learn how to teach the entire primary curriculum as well as choosing a particular route. The English route will give you the extra skills, knowledge and confidence to take on a leadership role in the subject in the future.

East London offers multicultural, multilingual and vibrant schools in which to learn, but your training at UEL will qualify you to teach anywhere in England or Wales.

Our PGCE team is made up of experienced practitioners who have worked in a range of primary and early years settings across London as classroom teachers, curriculum coordinators, advisory teachers and school leaders.

You will be part of a diverse community of students at UEL. We want to bring to east London a teacher workforce that reflects the local community, and in 2013-14, 24 per cent of our Primary PGCE trainees were men.
