Primary Courses

Our Primary teacher training programme offers the experience of teaching various age groups from
Nursery and Reception, through to Key Stages 1 and 2. This diverse experience allows
trainees the chance to observe, learn and teach at each stage in a child’s early development. 

We are able to specialise your teacher training to the key stage you are wanting to teach. If you are wanting your experience to be most reflected in early years then our training provides you with placements in nursery, reception and Key stage 1 and enhancements are available in Key stage 2 for the continuation of your development.  Trainees who complete the Primary with Mathematics training programme receive the same primary training but also carry out a mathematics project at their placement school as an addition. 

Primary 3 – 11

Our primary programme will develop your skills in teaching outstanding lessons for primary school pupils. We will use our evidence-informed training programme to ensure that you have all the necessary skills to plan and deliver the national curriculum in key stage 1 (KS1) and key stage 2 (KS2) whilst also developing a knowledge and understanding of the early years framework and the importance of this in relation to KS1 and KS2.

During your placements, you will develop your pedagogy and practice through working alongside highly experienced school colleagues who have taught successfully in primary schools for many years. In addition to being placed in two contrasting primary schools, we also provide you with experience in an rarly years setting and in secondary school in order to give you a deeper understanding of a child’s educational journey.

Throughout the programme, you will work closely with your professional mentor, mentor and subject lead to ensure that you get all the support you need to become an excellent teacher.

Primary with Mathematics

Alongside all the above, trainees who complete the Primary with Mathematics programme will work under the guidance of an National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics (NCETM) accredited professional to develop their knowledge and expertise in Mathematics. You will have a clear focus on the progression of skills and pedagogical approaches across Early Years, Key Stage One and Key Stage Two and will participate in an action research project whilst on placement with a clear focus on improving pupil progress in Mathematics.
