Department of Primary Teacher Education
This top-up degree course is aimed at applicants who wish to become teachers, develop their professional practice or broaden their knowledge of how schools and classrooms work. It is available full-time to those students who have previously completed a Foundation Degree in Supporting Teaching and Learning.
You must be currently employed within an educational setting or engaged on a similar voluntary placement. This is an essential requirement, as you will need to undertake small-scale research in your workplace, as well as applying some of the knowledge gained on the course in your day-to-day work.
*This degree does not confer Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). However, it may provide a foundation for postgraduate courses in teacher education and other related fields, including those offered by this university.
