We also offer a part time primary course, enabling you to earn while you train.

Part time routes will follow this pattern:

Year 1: 2 days a week on school placement in one school, one day of face to face training per week. 

Year 2: 2 days a week on school placement in a second school, online PGCE studies (optional) and a full time final placement in a third school.
