Study towards a rewarding career in primary education as you adopt a critically reflective and child-centred approach to teaching and working with children.

Combining independent research with collaborative workshops, you will explore contemporary issues such as inclusion, child development and the political nature of education. Professional experiences will enable you to apply your learning, develop your confidence and sharpen your teaching expertise.

This accelerated degree course will give you a thorough grounding in primary education, and you will be ideally placed to undertake a postgraduate Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) programme at the end of the two years.


You will spend time in educational settings on school placements and setting visits, where you will apply your knowledge and develop your confidence, planning and teaching skills.
