Course Summary

A teacher who is knowledgeable and skilled can have an amazing impact on a child during their time at school and beyond.

Teaching in the 5–11 age range - specialising in Years 3 to 6 - you will play a vital role in motivating children to be engaged and excited about learning across the curriculum, with an additional focus on teaching French at Key Stage 2.

The delivery of languages is now a statutory part of the primary curriculum. A high quality languages education should foster pupils’ curiosity, develop their self-confidence, broaden their horizons and encourage positive attitudes.

Developed in close partnership with primary schools throughout East Anglia, our Primary PGCE course is designed to help you become a confident and capable teacher who can motivate children and manage a class effectively.

Upon successful completion of your PGCE, you will graduate with Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and 90 Master’s level credits.

OVERVIEW

You’ll join this 38-week, full-time course in September and finish the following July. You’ll spend the majority of time in schools – with 120 days (minimum 24 weeks) in placements and up to 60 days in taught sessions at UEA. Your placements will be in two different schools, helping you to develop an understanding from contrasting experiences.

Our course has been designed so that you’ll graduate as a confident and highly reflective newly qualified teacher (NQT) with additional expertise and experience in the teaching of French.

UEA’s PGCE is based on the principle that you can only inspire and teach children well if you really understand them. We aim to develop reflective and inspirational teachers, who value and build upon the rich variety of backgrounds and experiences children bring to the classroom. We’ll prepare you to plan, teach, assess learning and manage children’s behaviour effectively. You will be well prepared to teach across the primary curriculum, and to work with other professionals in the classroom.
