This course is full-time course, studying for 3-7 age phase or 5-11 age phase.
The full-time course is for one year with at least 120 days in school and 60 days training. School placements are carefully structured to ensure gradual development of your confidence as an effective teacher through building up experiences by working with other trainees, link tutors and teachers.
Depending on the age range you choose, you will be trained to teach all National Curriculum subjects. The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is also studied for those on the 3-7 routes with an emphasis on the core subjects and ICT.
At present, you register for the course at Post Graduate level, gaining 60 masters credits (level 7) or you can gain a professional graduate qualification with either 60 credits at level 6 or 30 credits at level 6 and 30 at level 7.
The modules relate to the professional role of the teacher, the need to be a reflective practitioner, to developing your own knowledge of subjects and areas taught within primary schools and early years settings and how you teach to support children in effective learning.
The course will include lectures, seminars, workshops, Independent Study, tutorials, school-based training and will recommend you for Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). The University-based sessions are very much a starting point for the training undertaken in schools through observation and working alongside experienced teachers.
