Primary degree offered at Canterbury Christ Church University will support you in meeting the NCTL requirement to teach across two consecutive age-phases, and within two different school settings.
The programme is aimed at graduates who have a real passion, enthusiasm and commitment towards joining the teaching profession as a primary-phase teacher, and who seek to become the very best teacher and ‘leader of learning’ they can.
The more understanding you bring with you about the nature of teaching and learning in UK primary schools from the early years up to Year 6, and the role of the professional teacher, the better.
On successfully completing your PGCE, as well as moving into completing your NQT year and pursing your teaching career, there is also potential for you to engage in further study for a full Masters’ degree and on to a Doctorate in Education.
Following successful completion of this course, the usual next step is to seek employment as a Newly Qualified Teacher and to successfully pass that part of your induction into the teaching profession. From there, your teaching career can take you on to a very rewarding and exciting professional journey involving learning and teaching, leadership and management, research and advisory roles.
Always verify the dates on the programme website.
