At Liverpool John Moores University we offer a number of programmes in primary education.There is a choice of subject specialisms and the option to select the Key Stage you wish to teach. One of them is Primary Foundation Stage-Key Stage 1 (3-7 years) with QTS.


Our emphasis is on developing teachers who will examine, analyse, research and reflect on their practice to provide the very best and most appropriate learning opportunities for all children. By completing Nursery, Reception and Key Stage 1 placements, in different settings and socio-economic contexts, you will gain a greater understanding of Early Years teaching and learning. Primary Foundation Stage-Key Stage 1 (3-7 years) with QTS course at Liverpool John Moores University has a strong commitment to outdoor learning. We have links with Forest School practitioners and strive to enable all trainees to experience this aspect of Early Years practice.


The programmes provide opportunities for engagement with relevant local employment organisations including schools and teacher recruitment agencies through on-campus events and school-based placements. You are encouraged to join the relevant professional association for your area of study, extending your professional network.

Courses are, naturally, intended for those preparing to enter the teaching profession and most of our students go on to achieve their career goal, working in state or independent schools and colleges. Teaching provides a variety of pathways leading to specialist roles ranging from pastoral to subject leadership and on into school leadership positions.
