About Primary Education with recommendation for Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) at Liverpool John Moores University

The course will extend both your subject knowledge as well as pedagogical knowledge in all curriculum areas in Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. Professional studies modules each year form the backbone of the course and prepare you for the academic and professional role of being a teacher.

The course is delivered in partnership with our primary schools across in the North West, and will provide you a rich range of teaching opportunities in each year including a total of 24 weeks full time placements so you will have plenty of hands-on practice and training, not only from academic tutors but also from the teachers you work with in schools. Your teaching placements will be in Key Stage One and Key Stage 2 classes and will always have the support of a mentor with occasional visits from a member of LJMU staff to support and observe you.

Deciding to pursue a career in primary teaching should be based on real commitment and passion and you are expected to demonstrate your interest by completing at least two weeks' experience of working in a school or related setting before applying to study this course.

In year 1 you will have a 6 weeks block placement. In addition to this you will be in school every Monday from late October which will give you a great opportunity to build your confidence and understanding of the Primary school and the role of the teacher. In year 2 you will have a 6 weeks block placement with a one week orientation and then in year 3 your final placement will last for 12 weeks.

We would also like to see evidence of any community work you may have been involved with, for example helping at sports clubs, youth clubs, volunteering or Duke of Edinburgh Award, but not as part of your course.​

Notes about fees for this course

The fees quoted are those for the 2018/19 year as information for 2019/20 is not yet available. The Department for Education (DfE) have recently announced that they will be freezing tuition fees for the 2019/20 academic year. However, this is still subject to the normal parliamentary approval. Once 2019/20 fees are confirmed we will update our web pages accordingly.
