Oxford Brookes University has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
Our Primary Teacher Education (PTE) course is for those who:
- want a career where you can really change children’s lives
- are curious about how children learn
- want to become an outstanding teacher who improves children’s prospects.
- gain an understanding of the full range of subjects in the primary school national curriculum
- gain the skills to become a teacher recommended for Qualified Teacher Status (QTS)
- be well-informed about current practice
- prepare to become a future professional leader.
Your knowledge of primary schooling across the age range will be developed, as will your ability to teach primary curriculum subjects, particularly English, Mathematics and Science. Year 1 covers theories of learning as introduced in the child development module. Closely allied to this is the Becoming a Researcher module, while creativity and cross-curricular approaches are incorporated in the Exploring Learning module. Year 2 introduces you to three specialist pathways focusing on primary pedagogical aspects. Year 3 requires you to choose a study pathway and complete a dissertation in an area of your choice. Your learning will take place both on campus, in the classroom and in other educational contexts such as museums, galleries and the outdoors. A central component of the course will be your work experience in school, supported by school-based mentors. This features in each stage of the course in carefully selected partner schools.
Qualified teacher status (QTS)
To work as a teacher at a state school in England or Wales, you will need to achieve qualified teacher status (QTS). This is offered on this course for the following level:
