Middle Years (History, 7-14)

This programme aims to enable student teachers to become confident, competent classroom practitioners; it is ideal for those students who are particularly interested in this particular age group which spans the older years of primary education and who have a strong interest in their specialist subject, but also like the idea of working with primary children; are concerned about smoothing the transition of pupils from primary to secondary education; are interested in working across this age group such as in innovative state models of schooling; continental or independent schools; want to train as a teacher, but do not want to specialise in a particular phase of education at this stage; the programme has been designed for all students to meet the standards for Qualified Teacher Status; the programme runs in partnership with local primary and secondary schools; students spend 120 days in school as part of this programme and 60 days at the University.
