Course details

Summary

Make a positive difference in children's lives get the skills and knowledge you need to become a confident and competent primary school teacher.

This one-year, full-time programme will give you a grounding in the principles and theories of teaching and learning, human development, primary school curriculum studies and teaching experience.

Teacher experience - TE

You'll do two, seven week blocks of compulsory teaching in the classroom gaining valuable experience, applying what you've learned and building relationships with teachers and learners.
