It's also one of the most rewarding. To make sure you’re a successful and confident teacher in the 21st-century, we have devised a vibrant programme informed by research and constantly reviewed to ensure students are equipped with the most up-to-date developments in primary education. And we should know a bit about preparing teachers for the joys and rigours of the classroom, as the University began its life as a teacher training college more than 175 years ago. All that experience adds up and pays off: the latest Ofsted report stated that students “display impressive levels of confidence and understanding about how to be effective teachers”. Our passion is to provide you with a university experience that immerses you in the theory and practice of teaching. You will love studying at our beautiful campus where your lecturers know you by name, helping you to develop the confidence you need to be an outstanding teacher and make a real difference in the world. Our Primary Education programme aims to produce creative and critically reflective teachers able to meet the needs of even the most demanding modern schools. The course covers the core curriculum subjects, the full range of wider foundation subjects and a specialist subject study. There’s ample scope for you to personalise a professional portfolio in both breadth and depth to meet your own needs and follow areas of particular interest. The teaching team encourages this and combines plenty of hands-on experience, expertise and enthusiasm to nurture you through your academic and professional journey. All students complete common first and second year modules. In Year 2, with experience of both the taught programme and teaching in schools, you select your three or four year route. This flexibility supports personal academic and professional development opportunities. The four-year route allows you to further enhance and enrich your professional practice and offers the opportunity to gain up to 120 Level 7 Masters credits before taking up employment in a first teaching post. The programme aims are addressed through three key interdisciplinary themes – identity, perspectives and relationships – chosen for their relevance to the graduate primary teacher. You are encouraged to reflect on your educational values as you develop into enthusiastic, creative and respectful educators, equipped to respond to the needs of children and to engage with wider aspects of schooling such as citizenship and sustainability. Most students take up a position in teaching although, occasionally, graduates pursue other careers using the range of transferable skills gained during study.
