This programme will prepare students for the award of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) in line with the requirements of the Teachers’ Standards (2012) .

About this programme
Our Primary PGCE develops effective, confident teachers whose classroom practice is informed by an advanced knowledge of educational theory, and who will continue to learn and reflect throughout their careers. We will help students to acquire the skills and expertise to support children’s learning, prepare them to teach in an inclusive urban environment, provide professional development in all national curriculum subjects with a strong focus on mathematics and ensure that students show a concern for professional values and demonstrate the positive attitudes and behaviour expected from pupils.
Students undertake two Master’s-level (level 7) modules as part of the PGCE with a total of 60 Master’s credits on successful completion.
The programme consists of three core modules, two at Master’s-level (level 7) and one at Undergraduate-level (level 6) and three school placements.
You will have to pass all 3 modules in order to be recommended for QTS.
Teaching and learning
The programme is delivered via a combination of lectures, workshops, tutorials and self-study. Students will be supported though a virtual learning environment and will participate in school placements. Assessment is through assignments, presentations, audits, feedback and tutorials. A final assessment is based on a range of evidence including observations of teaching, assignments, subject knowledge development, professional conduct and responses to self-study.
The Specialist Mathematics pathway is part of the Primary PGCE programme. Additional specialist sessions will support students to develop expertise in teaching primary mathematics with the potential to develop as mathematics leaders within primary schools.
Upon successful completion of 60 credits, you will be awarded a PGCE.
Graduates of this programme are currently working across a broad range of areas. Some are working as classroom teachers and mentors to PGCE students, while others have jobs as maths subject leaders, deputy and assistant headteachers. Some graduates go on to work as mathematics teachers.
The Primary PGCE provision was rated Outstanding by Ofsted in 2013. IOE graduates are highly sought after in schools and colleges throughout London and the UK.
