The salaried Primary Course involves you being employed by the school where your main placement is. In addition to the training for the course, you would be expected to have additional responsibilities and accountability in the school, which tuition fee trainees wouldn’t have.
You would then undertake a 6 week placement in the Spring Term in a contrasting school, in a different Key Stage.
Salaried positions are only available in certain placement schools, so please contact us to enquire about the Salaried vacancies we have and your suitability for these posts.
The course itself is structured around six modules - a combination of taught modules based at the University and placement modules based in schools or educational settings.
You will undertake studies in all elements of primary education; extend your knowledge of learning and teaching, of the breadth and scope of the curriculum and the professional skills associated with high-quality teaching. You will then apply these areas of understanding and skill to classroom practice throughout the year, including during two assessed placements in schools or educational settings.
Upon successful completion of the course you will be awarded a PGCE with recommendations for the award of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).
The age range of the course in 5 - 11.
