You’ll join this 38-week, full-time course in September and finish the following July. You’ll spend the majority of time in schools – with up to 120 days (24 weeks) in placements and up to 60 days in taught sessions. Your placements will typically be in two different schools, helping you to develop an understanding from contrasting experiences.  

The PGCE Primary (specialising in Key Stage 2) course at the University of East Anglia  is based on the principle that you can only inspire and teach children well if you really understand them. We aim to develop reflective and inspirational teachers, who value and build upon the rich variety of backgrounds and experiences children bring to the classroom. 

We’ll prepare you to plan, teach, assess learning and manage children’s behaviour effectively. You will be well prepared to teach across the primary curriculum, and to work with other professionals in the classroom.
