Course content

Are you looking for a rewarding career where no two days are the same and you will impact some of the most crucial years of a child's development?

Our PGCE in Primary Education (postgraduate and professional routes) will enable you to develop your knowledge, understanding and skills to teach in primary schools - particularly those in the urban inner-city. Here you will engage in core practice and learn the professional values of teaching.

You will have the opportunity to train in two consecutive age ranges, Foundation/Key Stage 1, or Key Stage 1/Key Stage 2, or Key Stage 2 (which encompasses both ages 7-9 and 9-11).

The quality of teacher training in Primary education was rated as "Outstanding" in the Ofsted report for Initial Teacher Education 2016 Ofsted found that "Headteachers unanimously agree that when NQTs from the University of Greenwich are employed 'hit the ground running'. They are very muich the first choice for employers in the local and wider London region."
