Principal aims

The course begins in mid-September. The course prepares candidates to teach both across Key Stage 1 and 2, so candidates will undertake placements in both Key Stages. In addition to these placements, there will be a number of days in Foundation Stage and Key Stage 3 classrooms focusing on transition between the Key Stages, and a day in a school where candidates can observe the teaching of children for whom English is an Additional Language.

Principal learning outcomes

On successful completion of the course students will have attained 60 CATS credits towards a Masters qualification in addition to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).
