Course Summary

The course is suitable for applicants from a diverse range of backgrounds who have the talent and desire to teach, and the ability to train to become the next generation of teachers. The primary programme will prepare you to teach the complete Primary Curriculum from 5 to 11 and provides you with an opportunity to pursue a specific area of personal interest and specialism during phase 3.

We are a well-established provider of primary teachers with strong links with schools in Yorkshire and across the North East. The employment rate of our students is very high. Our graduates take up teaching posts across the UK as well as within our partnership schools.

We believe that the most effective path to becoming an outstanding teacher is a gradual one, filled with support and opportunities to put what you’ve learnt into practice in stages. That’s why we’ve designed our PGCE Primary courses in three main stages, each consisting of University-based and school-based training blocks.
