Take a creative, child-centred approach and develop a solid grounding of all areas of primary education.

As part of this course you’ll:

  • Learn the skills to ensure pupil engagement and achievement with an emphasis on inclusion, creativity and critical reflection
  • Develop your critical thinking skills, coming to understand about your own teaching and learning style
  • Question why other teachers work the way they do, and how you can learn from this
  • Undertake a structured placement in one of our partnership schools as well as shorter placements where you’ll focus on aspects of practice including phonics, behaviour management and teaching pupils for whom English is an additional language
  • Work creatively with children in a range of settings including special schools, galleries and museums and schools in other countries
  • Specialise in a specific subject area, including English, mathematics, science, primary languages or physical education

Gaining a subject specialism will make you highly sought after by prospective employers. As well as yearly school experiences, our modules take a theory-into-practice approach which will enable you to work creatively with children in a range of settings.

One way that that you’ll be taught is through a problem-based learning approach. This means less reliance on lectures, and you’ll learn in the way you may in turn teach your class at school. For example, you’ll be given real-life problems to solve, such as how you would fill the walls of a year 1 classroom, and what you would hope to achieve through your choices.

We have a range of facilities available to help your learning, including specialist sport facilities, a science laboratory, an ICT suite and a Design and Technology building.
