Early Primary Education

If you wish to communicate your enthusiasm of learning with young people, this course will prepare you to do this effectively. This three year Undergraduate course in Early Primary Education offers initial teacher education to develop reflective teachers who care about pupils’ development and who understand how to ensure pupil progression. You will focus on the teaching of the National Curriculum for primary schools and specialise in teaching Key Stages 1 and 2, with an enhanced focus on the whole curriculum as appropriate to children in the Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1. This course is designed to meet the NCTL Teaching Standards which assesses all trainees working towards Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). It is practically based, with theoretical back up and students will develop a wide range of skills, knowledge and understanding as they become competent and confident in the classroom. We are proud of our long-standing tradition of training students in Primary Education within the Institute of Education. This undergraduate qualification can be used to progress onto our Masters degrees in the field of education. Who will teach you on this course? All of the staff that teaches you on this course have experience within the field having worked in Primary Education and now work in teacher education. You will benefit from the team’s expertise, as they all actively engage in research. The Institute of Education at the University of Wolverhampton has a strong focus on research and the part it plays in your study experience.
