What will I learn?

Childhood experiences created by a great teacher will stay with a child throughout their lifetime. If you want to inspire children and help them achieve their potential, then join us to become part of the next generation of primary teachers.

You will spend time in each year of your degree observing and working with students in school classrooms. You will develop your own teaching identity and learn how to use your own individual skills to support student learning.

You will develop a deep understanding of childhood development, educational theories and practice. You will also learn how to engage children in innovative and purposeful learning. Along with the compulsory education courses, you will have the option of a range of discipline specific electives.
