University of East London PGCE Early Years

PGCE Primary with Early Years (3-7)

This primary teacher education course is designed for graduates who are committed to becoming primary school teachers. It trains you to teach the three to seven age range.

As a trainee, you will learn how to teach the entire primary curriculum as well as choosing a particular route. The Early Years route is designed for graduates who are interested in teaching children aged three to seven, but this will not restrict you to working with this age group.

East London offers multicultural, multilingual and vibrant schools in which to learn, but your training at UEL will qualify you to teach anywhere in England or Wales.

UEL’s PGCE team is made up of experienced practitioners who have worked in a range of primary and Early Years settings across London as classroom teachers, curriculum co-ordinators, advisory teachers and school leaders.

At UEL you will be part of a diverse community of students. We want to bring to east London a teacher workforce that reflects the local community and, in 2013-14, 24 per cent of our Primary PGCE trainees were men.
