Course content

Applicants applying for postgraduate initial teacher training courses will now need to apply through the DfE for entry in September 2022.

The 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. On the Humanities and Religious Education (RE) route you will gain the additional skills, knowledge and confidence to take on a leadership role in the field in the future. Humanities subjects include History, Geography and Citizenship.

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 co-ordinators, advisory teachers and school leaders.

At UEL you will be part of a diverse community of students. 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.
