These Primary teacher training programmes both lead to recommendation to the Department for Education for Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). The focus is on teaching the National Curriculum for primary schools and specialising in teaching Key Stages 1 and 2 with some opportunities for enhancements.
Undergraduate Education courses - Another great route for undergraduates to reach Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) is to do an undergraduate degree and then apply for the PGCE Primary (below). Our undergraduate Education courses offer a variety of perspectives on the wider education arena and many are combined with a National Curriculum subject putting you in an ideal position to get on the PGCE.
School Direct Routes - For those with an undergraduate degree there is also the option to consider the school direct routes to teaching which allows you to apply to one of our partnership schools for your training year.

View our Preparing for Initial Teacher Training Application and Interviews advice document.
There are many ways that you can prepare for teacher training. We have put together a list of things that you can do and courses that you can take to support your application.
Applicants for initial teacher training (ITT) courses are required to have passed the professional skills tests in Literacy and Numeracy before the start of the course. If you are offered a place following an interview, you will have to pass both skills tests as one of your conditions of acceptance before the course starts.
We also offer support with the taking and passing of the professional skills tests. To find out more about the kind of support we offer, please follow this link to our webpage.
