About the courseOur primary teacher education courses are designed for graduates who are committed to becoming primary school teachers. All trainees learn how to teach the entire primary curriculum as well as choosing a particular route. The Primary PGCE with Music route gives you additional expertise in supporting the teaching and learning of music. It is not essential to be a musician, but you should feel strongly about the important role of music in primary schools. East London offers multicultural, multilingual and particularly vibrant schools in which to train, but your training at UEL will qualify you to teach anywhere in England or Wales. UEL’s PGCE team is made up of experienced primary practitioners who have worked in a range of primary and Early Years settings across London as classroom teachers, curriculum co-ordinators, advisory teachers and school leaders. At UEL you will be part of a diverse community of students. Part of our mission is to bring to east London a teacher workforce that reflects the local community and in 2013-14, 24 per cent of our Primary PGCE trainees were male.
