Learn how to make a difference for children in this crucial stage of their development
As a Primary Teaching with Early Years student, you will learn the early years framework and national curriculum and how to deliver it to young children in exciting and engaging ways.
You will learn the fundamentals of teaching English, Maths and Science, as well as the key theories of learning development to better understand how to ensure that all children can succeed and thrive in school. You will also learn about the key issues in primary teaching through our professional studies modules.
You will also learn how to teach subjects that form the wider curriculum, including aspects of ICT/Computing, PE, Modern Foreign Languages, Music, Art, History, and Geography.
As an Early Years student teacher, you will complete a suite of modules in the advanced study of Early Years enabling you to be awarded a BA (Hons) Primary Teaching with Early Years degree.
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 modules of professional studies will explore the teaching skills that are required for the classroom, including behaviour for learning, planning for progression and assessing pupils effectively.
Advanced Study of Early Years Subject Study
The specialism module in semester 1 provides a grounding for early years practice. It considers the principles of the EYFS, how these can be embedded in practice and their relevance to KS1 teaching and learning. A visit to an outstanding setting allows for effective theory to practice links.
In semester 1, early years student teachers explore the topic of child development and implications for teaching practice. Semester 2 focuses on the concepts of play and pedagogy and their value and place in primary classrooms.
Your third year allows you to investigate a topic of your choice related to early years through the final independent project.
