Learn how to teach the full range of primary subjects and develop children’s holistic needs
As a Primary Teaching student, you will learn the national curriculum and how to deliver it to young children in exciting and engaging ways.
You will also learn about the key issues in primary teaching through our professional studies modules.
You will learn the fundamentals of teaching English, Maths and Science, as well as how to teach subjects that form the wider curriculum, including aspects of ICT/Computing, PE, Modern Foreign Languages, Music, Art, History, DT, Geography, RSHE and RE.
You will also learn the key theories of learning development to better understand how to ensure that all children can succeed and thrive in school.
Alongside these areas, you will have the opportunity to take modules that allow you to pursue a subject study within Primary Teaching that will be included on your final degree title.
Our suite of on campus modules is complemented by modules that will take you into school where you will practise as a student teacher.
As part of the programme, you will study curriculum modules that develop your pedagogic and subject knowledge within these areas.
Modules explore each subject within the core curriculum (English, Mathematics and Science), alongside modules that look at the wider curriculum (music, physical education, art etc.) to provide you with a thorough grounding in the full National Curriculum.
The course will equip you to take a critical and reflective view of each subject’s curriculum and pedagogies. You will develop a detailed understanding of the distinctive features of each subject area and explore relevant research concerning children’s learning in that subject.
By linking your learning to school experience, the module will promote the necessary understanding you need to plan, teach and assess the core curriculum effectively.
The professional studies modules will explore the teaching skills that are required for the classroom, including behaviour for learning, planning for progression and assessing pupils effectively.
You will explore effective inclusive practice and recognise how quality first teaching can support the progress of all children.
The final professional studies module explores your position as a teacher in the contemporary educational landscape. Through this, you will develop and articulate a personal philosophy of education that has built over the three years.

Gain vital experience as you develop your confidence at the heart of the classroom
We strongly believe in giving you a range of school placement opportunities to provide distinctive and rewarding experiences to help develop your professional skills.
You will progress from planning, teaching and managing the learning of a group of children for the core curriculum (Year One) to meeting the needs of a class of pupils in all curriculum areas (Year Three). You’ll get the opportunity to practise in a school early in the course.
You will receive substantial teaching experience in schools and other settings in the following pattern:
- Year One – Four weeks for three days per week in Term One and a block of four weeks in Term Three

These placements will usually provide distinctive opportunities in which to develop your professional and teaching skills.
In particular, efforts will be made to place you in schools with different organisational characteristics and in contrasting socio-economic catchment areas.
The special interest placement will also provide you with the experience of an alternative educational setting.
It enables you to follow an educational area of interest and extend your learning about a particular area of education, for example: working with bilingual learners, teaching in an outdoor education setting, or working in a special school.
