This primary teacher education course is designed for graduates who are committed to becoming primary school teachers. It trains you to teach children in the five-to-11 age range. As a trainee you will learn how to teach the entire primary curriculum as well as choosing a particular route. The Primary PGCE with ICT and Computing route is designed to give you the additional expertise, confidence and skills to take on a leadership role in this subject in the future.
East London offers multicultural, multilingual and vibrant schools in which to learn, but your training at UEL will qualify you to teach anywhere in England or Wales. Our PGCE team is made up of experienced practitioners who have worked in a range of primary and Early Years settings across London as classroom teachers, curriculum co-ordinators, advisory teachers and school leaders.
Your Future Career
By working alongside schools and local authorities in our region, we are helping to meet the need for teachers in our local area and many of our students are offered posts by our partner schools. Some trainees have been offered jobs at schools where they have spent their placement.
Schools and local authorities have told us that they think our trainees are of a high standard. OFSTED’s 2012 inspection report quotes one school as saying, “They arrive in schools ready to start teaching and are well prepared for the rigours of the classroom.” Backed by UEL’s excellent reputation, you will have a head start when it comes to securing a teaching post. And when you are in a post and decide that you wish to take your academic qualifications further, we can help you to continue your academic and professional development. Your PGCE will earn you 60 master’s level credits, which can count towards further qualifications on master’s courses at UEL.
