A combination of practice-based learning, campus-based sessions and private study will allow you to continue in work whilst studying, and use of the Virtual Learning Environment will enable you to access course materials and undertake tasks in your own time.
You’ll examine the current theory, with each module containing teaching, assessment and independent work, all of which are directly relevant to the primary classroom. School placements will ensure the knowledge and skills you acquire are also strongly anchored in practice.
The Primary Teaching Studies with QTS (Hons) programme at Bishop Grosseteste University is a stimulating and challenging vocational degree course that also leads to a professional qualification.
To make the most of it you’ll need to be highly motivated and well-organized, and equally confident in learning with others as learning independently. In return, you’ll benefit from the opportunity to equip yourself with the academic and professional qualities required in 21st-century teachers.
Former graduates of the progression route with QTS have become successful teachers in a range of primary settings. Many have become subject co-ordinators after as little as one year of teaching.
