We are delighted to be able to offer 2 pathways for those wishing to train to teach in the Primary sector (age range 5-11):
Primary UCAS Course Code – 2Q8Z
Primary Generalist with Mathematics* UCAS Course Code – 379W
Your training will blend carefully theory and practice, and will begin with a three-week intensive introduction to teaching and learning in the primary school, based at Tudor Grange Academy Solihull. Following this, your weeks will be structured to include days delivered by outstanding practitioners developing a deeper understanding of key issues in the classroom and days immersed in school putting this theory into practice. You will complete placements in two of our carefully selected partner schools from across Solihull and South Warwickshire.
As part of developing into a creative, reflective and adaptive practitioner, you will also have the opportunity to undertake learning at Masters level (leading to 60 credits) through our collaboration with Birmingham City University. This will involve engaging in Action Research about what works in the classroom, and will complement your day to day work as you progress through the year. At the end of the course you will not only be awarded a PGCE but you will also work towards achieving Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), and with your 60 Masters level credits, you will be ready to embark on a long and fulfilling career.
*Participants in the Primary Generalist with Mathematics programme may be eligible for a bursary – please see the Get Into Teaching page on bursaries and funding for further details.

We would expect this degree to be at least at Second Class level. All applicants must have a standard equivalent to grade 4 in GCSE English, Maths and a Science.
