Entry Requirements

Entrants must possess a good honours degree (i.e. 2:2 or above) from a UK university or a recognised equivalent qualification upon commencement of the course. The degree subject does not have to be related to this course, but the entrant's previous education must provide the necessary foundation for work as a primary school teacher.

To that end, it is also a requirement upon application that applicants have already secured a grade C or above at GCSE in Mathematics, English language and a science subject. We will also accept qualifications that are of a standard equivalent to GCSE grade C.

Original certificates will be required as proof of qualifications.

Entrants must have had at least two weeks recent and relevant experience of working with children in Foundation Stage and Key Stage One or Key Stage One / Two, before attending interview.
