Bishop Grosseteste University
Through this course you can study for 3-7 age phase or 7-11 age phase. Depending on the age range you choose, you will be trained to teach all National Curriculum subjects. The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is also studied for those on the 3-7 routes with an emphasis on the core subjects and ICT. This route is particularly appropriate for graduate career changers and for people who enjoy distance learning. You will need extremely good time management skills, energy, a capacity for independent study and an ability to manage several tasks in parallel. Much of the study and communication is in the form of blended learning, so access to internet facilities outside of the university is essential. Our recent Ofsted Report (2010) shows that we are highly successful and that we have 'High quality trainees with the potential to be good or better teachers'.
You will normally need: GCSEs at grade C or above (or equivalent) in English language, mathematics and a science at the time of application; an Honours degree at a 2.2 classification or above (where the degree result is to be awarded in the year of application, we will require a predicted degree classification as part of an academic reference provided on the application); Skills Tests in Numeracy and Literacy; Declaration of Health; DBS (formerly the CRB) Enhanced Disclosure.Experience in a relevant setting is also required as it will help you to make sure that you are aware of the role of a teacher in the 21st century. The course is intensive and demanding and you need to be very sure that you understand and are suited to a career in the teaching profession.
