About the Course
We offer two Teacher Training programmes; PGCE Primary (3-7) and PGCE Primary (5-11). Both courses provide you with supported, school-based experiences, split into three teaching placements. Your first placement will be in a host school, followed by a second and third placement which will be in a home school. These placements will give you the training experiences and access to specialist support that will develop your confidence for the start of your teaching career.
During those weeks when you are not on placement, you will spend your time between Leeds Trinity University and the placement school. You will receive teaching from the university academic staff and training under the direction of the All Saints’ Primary School Teacher Training Partnership. Through our partnership, you will have access to specialist leaders who will contribute to your professional development.
