Course content

Are you looking for a rewarding career where you will be able to impact some of the most crucial years of a child's development? Our PGCE Primary Education is for you.

Our PGCE in Primary Education (postgraduate and professional routes) will enable you to develop your knowledge, understanding and skills to teach in primary schools. We have exciting partnerships with schools, focusing in the urban inner-city. You will be able to train in two consecutive age ranges:

  • Foundation + Key Stage 1
  • Key Stage 1 + Key Stage 2
  • Key Stage 2 (covering ages 7-9 and 9-11)

You will spend at least 24 weeks across two primary schools, which provides the extended experience you need to develop your professional knowledge and skills. There will be further opportunities to engage in a range of specialist schools and educational contexts.
