The academic content of this Education (Primary) course at the University of Lincoln  is integrated with Initial Teacher Training at one of our partner institutions’ School Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) Centres, with the aim that students emerge from the course with an understanding of how academic knowledge and research can be integral to their own careers and to the development of education.

The School of Education at the University of Lincoln is working with the Lincolnshire Teaching School Alliance and St George’s Academy Partnership, both incorporating a wide range of schools across Lincolnshire, to provide teaching places in a range of primary school settings.

Career and Personal Development

A career in primary education can be highly rewarding. Through reflective practice, teachers can inspire and encourage young children to become independent learners, and watch them grow academically, socially, and emotionally.

Students who complete this course alongside gaining qualified teacher status may embark on a career in teaching, or they can continue within academia by studying for an MA in Education, EdD or PhD.
