Primary Education with QTS

UCAS Code: X120 Duration: 3 Years

Overview

Our distinctive three year degree will equip you with the depth of knowledge, skills and understanding required to become an outstanding Primary Teacher. You will be given a range of opportunities to gain significant experience teaching in a wide range of our partner schools.

There may be opportunities for you to travel to North America or Europe as part of our Student Teacher Exchange Programme and short two week placements organised by the Faculty of Education.

The Faculty is based in the custom-designed EDEN Building, which offers the latest in teaching technologies.

This is now the third century in which Liverpool Hope has been educating and training teachers. Its founding colleges were among the first in the country to educate elementary school mistresses. Initial teacher education and training continues to be central to Liverpool Hope’s mission. At Hope, we aspire to produce teachers who are creative, proactive and reflective practitioners. As a Hope Teacher you will have a moral purpose and an enthusiastic, innovative and flexible approach to collaborative teaching and learning.

Primary Education with QTS Subject Guide 2017

Curriculum

Alongside Professional Placement Learning in schools, you will study two strands that run parallel throughout each year of the degree programme:

  • Initial Professional Development: based around the four themes of Holistic Learning and Development; Inclusion and Diversity; The Child in Society; and Leadership and Management 
  • Subject Knowledge, Curriculum and Pedagogy: includes training on how to plan, teach and assess all subjects in the Primary Curriculum.

In addition there will be a final strand that will allow you to specialise in a National Curriculum area. These include English, Mathematics, Science, Modern Foreign Languages and Physical Education. Alternatively, you may wish to choose to focus on Special Educational Needs or Early Years (choices to be confirmed).
