Primary Education (5-11 age range)
The PGCE Primary route focuses on the study of teaching in all National Curriculum subjects, with emphasis on English, maths, science and ICT. School placements will be completed in relevant age phases. You will learn the principles of curriculum design and delivery, and theories of learning and teaching, alongside developing practical insights and skills in the effective teaching and assessment of young children. The course is designed to enable you to meet the requirements for qualified teacher status (QTS).
A good Honours degree or a recognised equivalent, preferably BA or BSc Upper Second Class (2.1) or above in one of the core subjects or early years. GCSEs (or equivalent) English language, mathematics and science at grade C or above; recent and relevant work experience in a British state primary school is normally required prior to interview. We do not require a specific amount of time in school. However, the quality and variety of your personal statement is an important factor in the decision to call you to interview. Candidates must attend an interview and sit literacy and numeracy tests at Newman University. Disclosure and Barring (DBS) clearance, meeting the requirements for Fitness to Teach is also required.
Modules: school experience; education and professional studies; core English; core maths; core science; broad curriculum; global education citizenship (optional); education and professional studies (postgraduate route).
Our lecturers and visiting teachers use a variety of teaching methods including lectures, seminars, workshops and special projects. Assessment is through coursework, presentations, project work and practical teaching ability.
