Course Summary

This programme will prepare students for the award of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) in line with the requirements of the Teachers’ Standards (2012) . UCL works in partnership with around 200 primary schools, enabling students to fully prepare to be a primary teacher. Students learn to teach all the primary curriculum subjects, with an emphasis on mathematics as a subject in its own right as well as the link between mathematics and other subject areas. Our Primary PGCE develops effective, confident teachers whose classroom practice is informed by an advanced knowledge of educational theory, and who will continue to learn and reflect throughout their careers. We will help students to acquire the skills and expertise to support children’s learning, prepare them to teach in an inclusive urban environment, provide professional development in all national curriculum subjects with a strong focus on mathematics and ensure that students show a concern for professional values and demonstrate the positive attitudes and behaviour expected from pupils.
