About the course

The programme is aimed at those who want to teach children in the 5–11 age range, that is, at Key Stages 1 and 2.

In order to be awarded Qualified Teacher Status trainees must meet the Teachers' Standards set by the Government and so the programme is designed to enable trainees to achieve this by offering a balance of school and University-based periods during the year.

The programme is one-year, full-time and its structure is closely linked to the term dates of local schools, with registration taking place in early September and the course finishing at the end of June.

The University-based element of the course comprises

• Core subjects

• Foundation subjects

• Professional Studies Course

The school-based element of the programme is largely taken up by two Teaching placements but there are also many other half and full-day visits to schools. In your application you can select a preferred location for one of these placements.

Interview process

Competition for places is strong.

You are interviewed by a member of the host school's leadership team and a tutor from the University. As part of the interview process you will be expected to deliver a short 'teaching' session to a small group of students and then have a one-to-one interview with the school team member and the university tutor.

You will also be expected to undertake some university admissions tests at the time of interview.

How school placements work

Trainees undertake two periods of teaching; one in the spring term and one in the summer. Each placement is of eight weeks’ duration and is preceded by two weeks of preparatory time in the placement school. The aim is to give every trainee a wide range of experience, encompassing pupils of different ages and schools of different size and type.

We work in partnership with over 150 primary-phase schools in the region, ranging from small, rural schools with approximately 50 pupils to large urban schools with over 600 pupils.

For each teaching placement, trainees are assigned a university tutor who offers support and guidance before and during the placement. This complements the role of the school mentor, who is able to monitor and assist the trainees’ development on a day-to-day basis.

University tutors and school mentors work closely in partnership with one another to ensure the best possible outcomes for all trainees.

During the year trainees will have the opportunity to teach all primary curriculum subjects, with an emphasis on English and mathematics. The overall teaching load for the spring placement is 60-65%, with an increase in the summer to 70-75%. This provides a firm basis for the 80% teaching load during the NQT year.
