You'll study 120 credits at Level 6, over three semesters. Our modules focus on the core curriculum subjects (English, maths and science) the other curriculum subjects general aspects of primary education (teaching, learning and assessment) School experience You must complete a minimum of two assessed school placements during the course. It's preferable to gain as much experience in different schools as possible, so we recommend that you do one (or both) of the placements in a school other than your own, if you are currently working in a school. Being absent from your employment for school placements will obviously have implications for an employing school. So you'll need the full support of your headteacher and governing body before you embark on this programme. In extreme cases, students have to seek permission to take unpaid leave during school placement periods (although this is rare). Over the period of the course you must spend 120 days in school. Over half of that will be through assessed school placements, supported by school and university staff. The remaining time can be through paid or voluntary work in schools, in appropriate roles, such as teaching assistants.
