PGCE Primary

If you love working with young children and want the challenge of nurturing and developing their learning across a wide range of subjects and activities, then primary teaching is for you.

A PGCE in primary education enables you to:

  • learn to teach across all the subjects and areas of the primary National Curriculum and the Foundation Stage
  • develop a wide range of strategies for supporting young children’s learning and working with others to maximise their potential
  • develop an imaginative approach to teaching that brings out the creative potential of you and your pupils
  • understand the wider importance of education in society and the key role that education 3-11 plays within this
