BEd Primary


On the BEd Primary three-year, full-time degree, you can choose to qualify as a fully-qualified primary teacher in one of the three areas below.

General, ages 3-7 (Foundation Stage-Key Stage One)

Covering both Early Years Foundation Stage and national curriculum, you will specialise in two subjects: a core such as English or maths and a foundation such as history or art. This means you can progress to being a subject leader in the area you’re passionate about.

General, ages 5-11 (Key Stage One-Key Stage Two)

This course involves developing children’s communication skills including speaking, reading, writing and mathematics, as well as advancing their abilities across the whole primary curriculum. Your role is important in continuing to build their foundations for healthy development through school and adult life.

You will specialise in two subjects: a core (English, maths, science) and a foundation (history, art, geography, religious education, physical education, computing or primary languages). You will then be able to progress to a subject leader in a specialist area.

Maths, ages 5-11 (Key Stage One-Key Stage Two)

Train to teach children aged 5 to 11 years with a focus on developing your skills as a maths teacher through modules and school-based experience. Alongside your maths specialism, you will learn to teach the full range of primary curriculum subjects, specialising in a second foundation subject (history, art, geography, religious education, physical education, computing or primary languages). This will equip you to pursue a role as a subject leader in your future teaching career.
