Kingston University London

Course Introduction

A sound knowledge of the core subjects of English, mathematics, information communication technology and science, along with a broader understanding of subjects such as art, geography and physical education. Students develop the essential skills of communication, planning, teaching and assessment needed in practice. Students spend 18 weeks of the 36'week course on school placements, supported by a school'based mentor and/or a university tutor. This specialism enables students to examine the philosophies underpinning the play based and formal approaches to learning and teaching. Students also experience and explore planning and assessment in the foundation stage and the issues and challenges that arise when supporting children through the transition between different phases of education.
