Train to be a primary education teacher with an additional specialism in mathematics and begin a rewarding career, teaching children aged between five and 11. This course will provide training in all primary stage national curriculum subjects, with a particular focus on maths.

You will explore established educational theories alongside new ideas, concepts and developments in the field of education. In addition, we will develop you as a future leader in the teaching of mathematics, giving you the knowledge and skills to promote, shape and develop the subject within a primary school setting.

A range of practical teaching experiences designed to enhance your professional development will complement rigorous academic study on campus. You will be supported on campus by expert tutors who will help to refine your subject knowledge and teaching practice. During your work in schools, you will be guided by mentors and experienced teachers as you put your learning into practice and really begin to hone your teaching skills.

In 2017, we became one of only 25 universities to have their initial teacher training allocations confirmed for the next three years, an acknowledgement by the Department for Education of our excellent results.

We have more than 100 years' experience of teacher training and you'll benefit from high quality tutorage from our Primary Maths team who received National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics Professional Development accreditation and through our excellent partnerships with schools. You will become part of a supportive teaching and learning community, where you will be able to pick up advice and tips from your course tutors and share ideas on lesson plans and classroom experiences with your fellow students.

Helping you to develop your confidence, identity and style through a critically reflective approach to your practice will form a fundamental element of your training.

Regardless of which training model you follow, you will gain substantial training in a school environment. You will complete three teaching placements in at least two contrasting schools, receiving support from your school mentor and university tutors.

You will learn from lecturers who have been practising teachers and are now active in educational research, benefiting from their practical experience and theoretical knowledge.

We provide ongoing training for all newly qualified teachers. On successful completion of your course, you will be able to enrol on our Newly Qualified Teacher module, providing you with another valuable element of support and coaching as you start your teaching career.

There's lots of support available to help you fund your teaching training. Depending on your degree class, the subject you want to teach and the training programme you follow, you could be eligible for a bursary, scholarship or even a salary.
