We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Postgraduate degrees in Primary Teacher Training equip graduates to work professionally in this part of the education sector, working with children at primary (or elementary) school level.
Initial Teacher Training (ITT) courses such as the UK PGCE (Postgraduate Certificate in Education) are typical for the field.
Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a subject relevant to the one you would like to teach. UK courses will also require a minimum Grade C in GCSE Maths, English and Science or equivalent qualification.
These courses typically offer you a direct route into teaching, with professional accreditation offered on most. Placements are a key component of these courses, and will provide you with vocational experience of teaching practise.
Training will cover both practical teaching techniques, alongside analysis into theories such as child behaviour, and an examination of the current curriculum. You will also analyse regulation within the sector, examining organisations such as Ofsted, and their role in - and impact on - legislative practices for Nursery teaching.
As well as teaching, careers may include social service work, public policy and administration, or even charity work.
