About the course

As a Teach North Primary trainee, you will complete one placement in Key Stage 1 and one placement in Key Stage 2. You will create a classroom climate where children can develop the characteristics of good learners and the vital skills required for the next phase in their education.

Alongside your pupils, you will explore the entire primary curriculum, from the daily teaching of phonics to Geography, from spelling patterns to Design Technology to name a few areas! This broad range of subjects and learning opportunities will deepen children’s educational experiences whilst building a solid foundation of subject knowledge and skills.

Your classroom will be brimming with interactive, engaging lessons where pupils develop their confidence, a sense of achievement and a love of learning.

On completion of this programme, you will be awarded a PGCE with QTS and 60 Masters credits in Education from Leeds Beckett University.

You’ll be delighted to know that we have a strong partnership with Leeds Beckett University and their Carnegie School of Education, which has been named by the Department for Education as one of the best provides of initial teacher education in the country.
