Plymouth Marjon University will provide you with a complete training covering the entire primary curriculum, as well as a specialism of your choice. Combined with this, the school-based experiences and teaching practices will enable you to become thoroughly prepared for taking on the role of class teacher from the outset. On completion, you will have earned Qualified Teacher Status with extensive classroom experience, making you a fully competent and confident teacher, ready to start your first job. The University has an unrivalled pedigree and heritage in training teachers, with the founders of the original Colleges of St Mark & St John inventing the notion of a serious preparation for teachers over 175 years ago. Since then, the University has had an unrivalled impact and reputation for populating this country, and indeed the world, with high quality, energetic new teachers. The high quality is still very much in evidence, with the National Student Survey (NSS) awarding us 98% for overall satisfaction for our initial teacher training in 2014. Our recent Ofsted report (July 2014) judged the University Teacher Education Partnership to be ‘Good with outstanding features’. Key highlights are the outstanding leadership and management of primary and secondary programmes, high quality training, particularly in the teaching of reading, maths, behaviour management and teaching pupils with special educational needs, and highly professional trainees who make a positive contribution to all aspects of school life.
