Program overview

From city to village schools, you will experience a range of classroom environments. You will make a difference to young people, supporting children with individual and diverse needs as well as developing good practice in promoting positive behaviour. This includes developing children’s communication skills including speaking, reading, writing and mathematics, as well as advancing their abilities across the whole primary curriculum. You will also have opportunities to engage with pupils who speak English as an additional language and work children with special educational needs. You will graduate as a well-rounded primary teacher, ready to inspire young minds. Academic modules are studied through a mix of whole cohort lectures and smaller group workshops and seminars. You will spend a minimum of 120 days in a primary school, putting theory into practice. This will be through blocks of placement weeks throughout the three years of the course. Lectures focus on developing your subject knowledge and pedagogy, and are carefully structured around your increasing understanding of practice from placement experiences. The emphasis on professionalism throughout the course prepares you to become an excellent teacher. Alongside work placements and lectures, you will develop skills through field trips and off-campus activities, exploring creative lesson planning in the locality. A range of additional experiences are available to you during your studies, for example, volunteering in local primary schools, at the Cheltenham Literature Festival, and with Waterstones bookshop providing story time sessions for children.
