About

The Primary programme offered by St Mary’s have franchised this successful programme to enable students to study at Wrexham Glyndwr University in North East Wales.

Overview

The Primary programme offered by the Wrexham Glyndwr University encourages you to increase your understanding of teaching and learning processes in order to develop and maintain the high levels of enthusiasm, ability and passion necessary within the teaching profession.

At St Mary's, we look for those who wish to learn from challenges and seek a higher capacity to know more. In line with the University Mission Statement, the programme seeks to prepare teachers for schools at home and abroad including for those intending to teach in Roman Catholic and other Christian schools.

Career opportunities

A career in teaching offers the same rewards that you would expect from a graduate position with good salaries and opportunities for career progression. The opportunities, however, to inspire, educate and teach future generations of children are unlike any other graduate job!

Graduates from the PGCE are in great demand in teaching posts throughout the UK. Of the 2016/17 Primary PGCE graduates, over 100% of trainees were in employment within six months (Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education, HESA).
