Course Summary

Course Summary

Our primary teacher education courses are designed for graduates who are committed to becoming primary school teachers. All trainees learn how to teach the entire primary curriculum as well as choosing a particular route. The Primary PGCE with Music route gives you additional expertise in supporting the teaching and learning of music. It is not essential to be a musician, but you should feel strongly about the important role of music in primary schools.

East London offers multicultural, multilingual and particularly vibrant schools in which to train, but your training at UEL will qualify you to teach anywhere in England or Wales. UEL’s PGCE team is made up of experienced primary practitioners who have worked in a range of primary and Early Years settings across London as classroom teachers, curriculum co-ordinators, advisory teachers and school leaders.

Your Future Career

By working alongside schools and local authorities in our region, we are helping to meet the need for teachers in our local area and many of our students are offered posts by our partner schools. Some trainees have been offered jobs at schools where they have spent their placement. Backed by our good reputation, you will have a head start when it comes to securing a teaching post. And when you are in a post and decide that you wish to take your academic qualifications further, we can help you to continue your academic and professional development.
