Course Description

This three-year degree route prepares you for becoming an early years teacher (in school and nursery settings). The route provides quality training to teach in the 3-7 age range.

On successful completion of the course your details will be passed to the National College for Teaching and Leadership (NCTL) who will award you Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).

Our courses offer four integrated elements of teacher education – school experience, professional studies, subject specialism study and curriculum study. School Experience is structured to allow students to progress from planning, teaching and managing the learning of a group of children for the core curriculum to meeting the needs of a class of pupils in all curriculum areas from the foundation stage to key stage one (3 - 7 year olds). You’ll get the opportunity to go into a school early in the course. These placements will usually provide distinctive opportunities in which to develop your professional and teaching skills. In particular, efforts will be made to place you in schools with different organisational characteristics and in contrasting socio-economic catchment areas.

An additional Special Interest Placement will provide you with experience of working in a nursery setting. This will enable you to follow your interest in early years and extend your learning of the continuum of education. You will see how nursery provision supports children’s school readiness and it will provoke reflections on the differences between pre-school and primary education.
