About the courseTaking a creative, child-centred approach, your course will provide a solid grounding of all areas of primary education - Key Stages 1 and 2. With an emphasis on inclusion, creativity and critical reflection, you will learn the skills to ensure pupil engagement and achievement. You will develop your critical thinking skills, coming to understand about your own teaching and learning style. You will question why other teachers work the way they do, and how you can learn from this. In each year of study, you will undertake a structured placement in one of our partnership schools. You will also undertake shorter placements which are directly linked to your modules and which will allow you to focus upon particular aspects of practice. These include phonics, behaviour management and teaching pupils for whom English is an additional language. Over the three years of study you will have the opportunity to develop and hone your practice in a wide range of contexts.You will also have the opportunity to 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.We have been identified as one of the leading teacher training providers in England. We are one of only 25 universities to have had their initial teacher training allocations confirmed for the next three years, an acknowledgement by the Department for Education of their excellent provision.
