Primary Education: Later Years (with QTS) - Leeds Trinity University

Do you want to positively impact a child’s social and emotional development? Do you want to play a major role in a crucial stage of the development of a child’s cognitive ability? Children do not stop developing at age seven. In Key Stage 2, children are learning to use key skills like working with others, problem-solving and communication. They need a different style of teaching to help them develop these skills effectively, which is why we give you the opportunity to specialise in training to teach children aged 7-11 years old. You’ll learn how effective teaching can impact a child’s educational progress, developing teaching skills informed by theory and subject knowledge. You’ll apply your knowledge in a classroom setting, working in all areas of the national curriculum. You’ll understand the roles and responsibilities of a teacher and develop the professional skills of planning, teaching and assessing learning, as well as how to build effective relationships with children. We’ll give you a deep knowledge of the Teachers’ Standards and the chance to apply theory to practice in your school-based placements. The settings in which learning takes place are not restricted to the primary classroom, so you’ll also complete an alternative professional work placement in a setting such as special provision, a school abroad, a museum, an educational attraction or a library service. **Graduate opportunities** You’ll graduate with Qualified Teacher Status, which means you can start teaching in a primary school immediately. The majority of our graduates become teachers in primary schools, although some also work in special provision or international settings. **Placement opportunities** In Year 1, you’ll take part in Focus Day visits at schools to reflect on key principles in English and Maths teaching. You’ll also attend a two-week induction placement, followed by a seven-week block placement. In Year 2, your Focus Day visits will reflect on best practice in supporting pupils with a wide range of needs. You’ll complete an eight-week assessed block placement, but you’ll also have the opportunity to spend two weeks in an alternative setting. In Year 3, you’ll complete your 11 weeks in school, eight of which will be assessed. You’ll also complete a two-week enhanced placement.
