Welcome to the BA (Hons) Computer Science with Education and QTS
Our programme has been designed for those who are passionate about the
idea of becoming primary teachers in 3 years, rather than the normal 4 year
Much of your time will be spent in schools, observing teaching and learning, considering how the theory of education and the practice observed work with each other and, of course, working with children in classroom settings.
You will be studying in a diverse community of students. You will have the opportunity to develop your experience of working with children in a range of settings, including the inner-city environment. Many themes such as equal opportunities, multilingualism, meeting the needs of children with special educational needs underpin most modules.
The teaching year begins in September and ends in July. You’ll attend five days a week and spend the equivalent of 24 weeks in schools. You will find this programme challenging and intensive but we are here to support you on your journey to becoming a teacher.
• Your original passport
• A lesson plan, plus any useful resources for a Year 7 computing lesson of your choice. You will need to write this and bring hard copies to the interview to present to us. The following link will help you to write a lesson plan:
- Paperwork checks
- A written task
- An individual interview.
Your responses to tasks and activities will be considered alongside all the other evidence to assess your suitability for the programme. During the individual interview, you will be given the chance to talk with a tutor about the programme and any other issues that are relevant.
