Primary PGCE programmes
We work in partnership with around 300 primary schools to fully prepare Primary PGCE students for a career as a primary teacher.
Our students benefit enormously from the complementary skills and expertise of staff in partnership schools and at the IOE. The teachers serve as mentors and joint assessors for our student teachers.
IOE tutors have extensive experience of teaching, school management, inspection, research and consultancy. Students will learn to teach all the primary curriculum subjects. They will also select one subject for specialist study.

The Primary PGCE Approach
Our Primary PGCE develops effective, confident teachers whose classroom practice is informed by an advanced knowledge of educational theory.
At the IOE, we help students to acquire the skills and expertise to support children’s learning.
We prepare our student teachers to teach in an inclusive urban environment, provide professional development in all national curriculum subjects, ensure that students show a concern for professional values and demonstrate the positive attitudes and behaviour expected from pupils.
