Our BA (Hons) Primary Education Studies will prepare you for a career in education, and possibly becoming a primary school teacher. You will learn about current professional practice in the primary school classroom and areas such as building literacy and mathematical skills, planning lessons and managing behaviour in the classroom.
We encourage all our students to get some practical experience, and you will have opportunities to observe teaching in local schools and will be perfectly placed to apply for a postgraduate teacher training course at the end of your studies if you want to do so. Read lecturer Nicola's tips to get the most out of a classroom observation. You will also have wider career opportunities working with children of school age and their families.
