The early year's environment in primary schools and early years settings is vibrant and exciting – for children and their teachers.
During the Primary Education - Early Years 3-7 (QTS Honours) program at Leeds Trinity University, you'll learn how experiential, play-based learning supports young children's development and how, as an effective practitioner, you can have a positive impact on children's development and learning. Teaching in early years is dynamic, so you'll learn the professional skills related to planning, teaching and assessing, as well as how to manage a setting where children and adults work together in learning.
You'll gain an understanding of the transition to Key Stage 1 and develop knowledge of both the Early Years Foundation Stage and the National Curriculum at Key Stage 1.
Extensive school-based training will give you a deeper understanding of the Teachers' Standards and how to apply theory to practice, while your enhanced placement will give you the experience of teaching in the special provision, specialist subject provision, museums or library services.
As a qualified teacher, you'll open the door to a wide range of career progression opportunities that will not only increase your earning potential but will help you to make a difference at a much higher level.
