Course Summary

This course will enable you to become an effective, inclusive and evidence informed teacher. At the heart of our course is a commitment to personalizing your journey to Qualified Teacher Status. We'll help you to grow in confidence and competence by providing you with outstanding support as you train. We have high student satisfaction rates, as evidenced in the Guardian University League table for Education. You'll find a supportive learning environment at the University and in our partnership schools. This will help you develop a deep understanding of the primary curriculum and acquire a range of teaching methods, based upon the latest research in education. We model good teaching as we train you, so you can transfer what you've experienced into your own practice. We make use of a range of learning experiences, including our very popular Dorset residential trip at the start of your course where you'll begin to consider how to make use of the world beyond your classroom door. You'll also benefit from a course that supports you in becoming a research-engaged teacher, who can use evidence to drive improvements in young people's learning and well-being. Your PGCE modules form part of our Master of Research in Education, which you can continue with beyond your PGCE year. You will benefit from two contrasting placements in our committed partnership of schools. You will spend two-thirds of your course in both placements.
