About the course

Our General Primary with Maths course will require you working in two contrasting schools across our partnership, depending on the location selected (Don’t worry, if you apply to a Leicestershire course, we won’t be sending you to Nottingham and visa versa). We call these placements your host and your alternative school. You will complete your placement at your host school in the Autumn and Summer term, whilst your alternative placement will be completed in the Spring term. With each placement, you will change year group to cover these 3 age phases: Year 1 and 2; Year 3 and 4; Year 5 and 6, ensuring you gain a variety of experience so you can work out where you would like to be when you qualify as a teacher.

You will have specialist training days, experiences and centre based training to develop your specialism in Maths.
