Our Primary course is led and developed by current Primary school teachers, including Specialist Leaders of Education (Primary) and Headteachers.
The course has training sessions in local primary schools, at Saint Patrick’s RC high School and their are 12 University Sessions at Liverpool Hope to support you in gaining your PGCE. This means that you can be based in schools for delivery of sessions allowing you to gain first hand experiences of theory and see it in action in the classroom.
Sessions are timed to support what you are doing in schools and allow you to reflect and learn from your experiences. With a rich curriculum to develop Children you will receive focused sessions to support your teaching in all subject areas.
The course has a gradualised build up into teaching. You can plan, teach and share classes with the class teacher so that you can learn as your confidence develops. We have two full induction days before September and a chance to visit your placement schools. This helps you to build a wonderful community with all the trainees and staff that you will be working with.
We work in partnership with Liverpool Hope University who have a Gold Standard in Teaching Excellence, ensuring that you always receive the very best training during your teaching year. These 12 university sessions also provide you with an additional chance to network and share outstanding practice across Initial Teaching Training cohorts. As well as your QTS and PGCE you will receive 60 masters credits on our Schools Direct course.
