Training to teach primary

By training to teach primary, you’ll make an extraordinary impact during some of the most crucial years of a child’s development. No two days will ever be the same as you teach subjects across the curriculum. 

The benefits

when you register with us, you’ll receive practical advice and guidance from our team of experienced teachers via our free Teacher Training Adviser service  

Tuition Fee Loan and Maintenance Loan to cover tuition fees and help with living costs, this is irrespective of receiving these loans during your undergraduate degree 

extra financial support if you're a parent or have a disability, which doesn't need to be paid back 

What you need to know 

Primary teachers often teach different subjects to the same class, so your training will also equip you with the skills you need to respond to your pupils’ individual needs. As a result, you’ll discover how to fulfil an increasingly pastoral role in the classroom, helping children feel at ease and settled into school life.

Once you qualify, you’ll start on a salary of at least £25,714, or £32,157 in inner London. As your career progresses, so will your salary – more information on teachers' pay ranges can be found on the teachers' salary page.

Additionally, teaching offers access to a wealth of other benefits – from a generous pension to enjoying the flexibility of school holidays, up to 13 weeks, which are unique to the profession.
