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. 

There’s plenty of support available to get into primary teaching…

  • once you register with us, you'll receive support from a teaching expert who will answer all your questions and assist with your application
  • Tuition Fee Loan and Maintenance Loan to cover your training, 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 qualified you’ll be ensured job security, and benefit from a competitive starting salary of at least £23,720, or £29,664 in inner London. 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.
