100% of Primary Education (part-time) graduates were in employment or further study six months after completing their studies
Do you want to become a fully qualified class teacher, but only have the capacity to study part-time? Are you not able to commute regularly to Canterbury? Do you have family commitments or some form of employment that you are not able to give up? If you have answered yes to any of the former questions and are looking for an accessible route into becoming a fully qualified class teacher, please consider the following:
Do you have a desire to make a positive impact in a child’s life opportunities? Do you have the ability to motivate and engage children? Are you committed to continuous self-improvement? Do you want to acquire a deep understanding of how children learn and of the primary curriculum? If these questions are applicable to you, then please come and join us at Canterbury Christ Church University, School of Teacher Education and Development.
Canterbury Christ Church University will recommend to the Department for Education and the National College for Teaching and Leadership that successful students be awarded Qualified Teacher Status.
The part- time route will enable you to become a generalist primary classroom teacher, by supporting you in reaching Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). You will also gain a Bachelor of Arts Honours Degree. During the course you will gain a strong understanding of children’s learning and development, alongside experience of teaching the curriculum.
This part-time route, has been specifically designed to allow you to combine both face to face contact University sessions and home study. You will be expected to complete weekly directed self-study from home through the University’s virtual learning environment and to attend four lots of three day (typically Thursday to Saturday) university study sessions spread throughout the academic year. Throughout the duration of the four and a half year course you will also experience days in school and three block school partnership placements.
On successful completion of the course you will graduate and be recommended for the award of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). Following the award of QTS, and the successful completion of the Newly Qualified Teacher year, you will be qualified to teach the whole of the primary phase.
This part-time programme provides a means of study that allows some people who are unable to study full-time, the opportunity to gain both a degree and qualified teacher status.
