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 Mathematics route is designed to give you additional expertise in supporting the teaching and learning of mathematics, so that you will have the confidence to take on a leadership role in the subject in the future.
East London offers multicultural, multilingual and particularly 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 primary practitioners who have worked in a range of primary and Early Years settings across London as classroom teachers, curriculum co-ordinators, advisory teachers and school leaders.
At UEL you will be part of a diverse community of students. Part of our mission is 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 male.
