Primary Education (Early Years 3-7) with QTS - Leeds Trinity University

Are you excited by a career in which you can encourage young children to enjoy learning and make daily progress? The early years environment in primary schools and early years settings is exciting – for children and their teachers. By training to deliver the Early Years Foundation Stage and the National Curriculum for Key Stage 1, you'll develop the right expertise and values to provide outstanding learning experiences for all children. We'll work with you to ensure that the emotional and social development of the children you work with is embedded in all that you do, helping you to understand your influential role in young children's lives. You'll learn how experiential, play-based learning supports young children's development and how, as an effective practitioner, you can have a positive impact on children's development and learning. Teaching in early years is dynamic, so you'll learn the professional skills related to planning, teaching and assessing, as well as how to manage a setting where children and adults work together in learning. You'll gain an understanding of the transition to Key Stage 1 and develop knowledge of both the Early Years Foundation Stage and the National Curriculum at Key Stage 1. **School-based Training** In each year of the programme, you'll benefit from a minimum of seven weeks training in an early years or primary school setting. At each stage of training, you will be supported by an expert school mentor, as well as a University link tutor. In the first year, you will gradually take on some of the teacher's role by working with small groups of children, setting activities in areas of provision and moving on to teach whole group lessons. Throughout the second and third year, you will build up the amount of time you spend planning, teaching and assessing children until you have gained the independence needed to be successful in your first year of teaching. **Postgraduate Study** Many of our Primary Education graduates decide to further their career prospects and opportunities for career progression by completing a Master’s in Education. Aimed at people working in teaching, training, lecturing or support positions in education, our MA Education is a part-time, professionally relevant programme designed to support reflective and evidence-based practice. As a Leeds Trinity graduate, you will be eligible for up to 50% off the cost of our MA Education. **Career progression** As a qualified teacher, you'll open the door to a wide range of career progression opportunities that will not only increase your earning potential, but will help you to make a difference at a much higher level. We're really proud of our alumni, whose teaching careers have taken them across the UK and the world. They're making their mark on the future generation as heads of departments, head teachers, pastoral care leaders and even as international school founders.
