Primary Teaching

"Studying at Warwick gave me a solid foundation for my career as a teacher. Some great lectures, visits and guest speakers provided some useful information to help me on my way. Warwick also arranged some brilliant teaching placements for me where I got up and taught in front of a class for the first time! I would definitely recommend Warwick."
