Overview

This Primary programme at London South Bank University  leads to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). This course equips you to teach primary aged pupils, with a focus on the 5-11 age phase (Key Stage 1 and 2), or 3-7 age phase (Early Years and Key Stage 1), through school-based training, lectures, seminars, workshops and tutorials. You'll gain 60 Master's level credits and be awarded with a Postgraduate Certificate in Education.

Employability

Completion and employment rates for our PGCE are both above the sector norms and we have been identified as a good provider of initial teacher training (OFSTED 2014). Although we pride ourselves in providing teachers for London schools, successful students enter the teaching profession in a variety of schools within the UK.

All students entering the course have the possibility of gaining up to 60 credits at Masters level, which can be used by students to count towards the award of full Masters qualifications (such as the LSBU MA in Education) gained via further study after graduation.
