Teaching is an extremely rewarding and challenging career. The Education - Primary - Early Years course at University of Chester aims to nurture teachers who are passionate about the development of their own and their pupils' learning.
The University of Chester Partnership has a rich history of developing highly skilled, knowledgeable teachers, and has a high employability rate. Our Partnership has learning at its heart, combined with passion and enthusiasm for teaching and learning. This is reflected in our 'Outstanding' grading from Ofsted (2016).
We will provide you with the support you need to become a critically reflective evidence-based practitioner through a combination of academic challenge and school-based learning. A distinctive aspect of the Chester experience is the enrichment module, which will support you in developing your expertise and employability in different educational settings, e.g. nurseries, SEND schools, KS2 provision. Strong pastoral care is a key aspect of ensuring your success on this demanding but fulfilling course.
