You'll find a supportive learning environment at the University and in our partnership schools. This will help you develop a deep understanding of the primary curriculum and acquire a range of teaching methods, based upon the latest research in education. We model good teaching as we train you, so you can transfer what you've experienced into your own practice.
We make use of a range of learning experiences, including our very popular Dorset residential trip at the start of your course where you'll begin to consider how to make use of the world beyond your classroom door.
You'll also benefit from a course that supports you in becoming a research-engaged teacher, who can use evidence to drive improvements in young people's learning and well being. Your PGCE modules form part of our Master of Research in Education, which you can continue with beyond your PGCE year.
Over 95% of the graduates of Primary Teaching leading to Qualified Teacher Status course at Kingston University enter the teaching profession after they complete their course. Many go into middle and senior management roles in schools.
