After the course
Our two-year Primary Education BA is primarily focused on progression to the role of classroom teacher for children aged between three and 12, following subsequent completion of QTS.
This course also supports those wishing to enter para- or alternative professional roles within the primary school, including those offering support for specific needs, mentoring, skills coaching and more. As a full honours degree, it opens up options for postgraduate study and career development across a number of fields concerned with children and their well-being beyond the classroom.
Our graduates pursue careers in:
- Primary teaching [after completing a one-year PGCE]
- Social work [after completion of a two-year MA Social Work]
- Education settings in a variety of roles
- Charities and local community projects
- Further and higher education lecturing
- Government, private and voluntary sectors
These fees and the fee waiver are subject to confirmation of government student funding for accelerated degree students. At present, the University is waiting to find out how much government funding will be made available per year to accelerated degree students from the 2019-20 academic year.
