Course content

For graduates with a good honours degree, this course equips you with the skills needed for the demanding task of teaching 3 - 7 year old children in nursery and infant schools. You develop the knowledge, skills and enthusiasm you need to motivate young children’s learning.

The course awards Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and develops the knowledge, skills and enthusiasm you need to motivate young children’s learning.

You study the core subjects of English, mathematics and science for Key Stage 1 and all aspects of the early years foundation stage. As part of the course you gain 60 credits towards a masters qualification.

Much of your development is built through your school-based training, linked by university-based learning. Your first experience is in Key Stage 1. It begins with 16 initial days followed by 7 week assessed placement. The second school based training placement is in a foundation stage setting and is over a longer time period. In total you spend 120 days in school over the year.

We offer the course in partnership with local and regional primary, infant and nursery schools. These play a key role in teaching and assessment, and helping to develop to your professional competence.

Course structure

Modules

The course is made up of modules which integrate experience in schools and nurseries with professional and curriculum studies.

You complete two masters levels modules. One enables you to evaluate and reflect on your own progress as a teacher, and the second enables you to explore a chosen area in more depth in your school or setting and with colleagues in that setting.

The other modules assess your ability against the teacher standards. You are assessed in foundation stage and in Key Stage 1.

Assessment

Your academic work is assessed by written coursework assignments. Your teaching is assessed in schools and by school based mentors. You record evidence of your progress towards Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) in a professional development portfolio.This course is assessed at masters level and we expect most students to achieve this. However, some students may not attain this level of academic work. These students may be awarded a Professional Certificate in Education, provided they have passed all elements of the course at undergraduate level, and have met all the standards for QTS.

Successfully completing the course qualifies you to teach in maintained primary, infant and nursery schools in England and Wales. You may also take up posts overseas in teaching and related employment.
