Summary

COURSE OVERVIEW

Train to be a primary school teacher and enjoy a rewarding career teaching children aged between five and 11 years. We will build your knowledge and teaching ability so that you can become a confident and inspiring practitioner, with the ability to spark children's imaginations and learning.

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.

This course will provide training in all primary stage National Curriculum subjects, with a particular focus on the core subjects of English, mathematics and science. You will explore established educational theories alongside new ideas, concepts and developments in the field of education. Rigorous academic study on campus will be complemented by a range of practical teaching experiences to really enhance your professional development.

On campus, you will be supported by expert tutors who will help to refine your subject knowledge and teaching practice. Working in schools, you will be supported by school-based mentors and experienced teachers as you put your learning into practice and really hone your teaching skills. You can choose from two different training models.

University-led: You will develop your theoretical knowledge at our Headingley Campus, which offers a superb learning environment, modern facilities and excellent resources. Your learning will be informed by the very latest research and the expertise of our supportive teaching staff. We will organise your extensive school placements so you can apply your knowledge in a classroom setting and your placements will be timetabled to fit with your taught seminars on campus.

School Direct: For the vast majority of your course, you will be based in your alliance school or schools, learning on the job while being supported by experienced teachers and mentors. You will attend university at Headingley Campus for key seminars on subject knowledge and teaching for your chosen age range, with additional sessions for three masters modules. University sessions will take place in the autumn term and will reduce as a greater amount of your time is spent in school.

TEACHING & LEARNING

Independent study is a crucial part of learning at university and you will be required to undertake many hours of self-directed research and reading, and preparation and writing of assessments. Your course is delivered through a number of modules, which will help you to plan your time and establish a study routine. Outside of your lectures, workshops and tutorials, a range of support is available to assist with your independent study. Our subject-specific librarians will be on hand to direct you to the specialist learning and study-skill resources. You’ll also be assigned an academic advisor to give you tailored feedback and support.

Our silver status in the latest Teaching Excellence Framework, reflects our commitment to deliver high-quality teaching, learning and outcomes for our students.
