All modules are compulsory.
The reputation of our trainees, both within and outside of immediate partnership schools in the South West, has resulted in high employability rates, with the University ‘seal of approval’ being recognised by headteachers across the country. Ofsted (2104) praised the University’s ‘effective use of local diversity and wider links which ensures trainees have breadth and variety in their training, so making them highly employable’. Many students undertake their teaching practices in London or abroad, therefore your qualification from The University of St Mark and St John will enable you to be a serious consideration for any first post.
Over 90% of our trainees go on to secure teaching posts locally, nationally or abroad which is above national rate. Others go on to further postgraduate study or research posts within Higher Education. Some of our trainees have gone on to establish themselves as freelance specialist teachers in their field of expertise.
This course is led by Sally Eales, Anne Bradley, Clare Shaw and Dr Paul Foster. This enthusiastic and dynamic team brings decades of experience to the classroom, as well as thought-provoking research specialisms including teaching reading, developing children’s writing techniques, reflective practice and music composition.
