Primary Teaching & Learning Contextual Studies (School Direct) (EDUM053)

30 credits

This module will develop the knowledge, skills and confidence necessary for you to teach primary aged children in both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2, and to understand how to understand the curriculum in related phases.

The module will increase your overall understanding of primary education and will be additional to the teaching and learning you will experience in the Educational and Professional Studies, Curriculum Studies and Primary Professional Learning module. The module will be led by University of Exeter academics with input from outstanding teachers who are part of our School Direct programme.

There is an emphasis within the module to develop in more depth and in a practical manner, some of the concepts taught theoretically during your Educational and Professional Studies and Curriculum Studies modules. Linking theory to practice within a school context will prepare you to become an outstanding primary school practitioner.

The module will enable you to achieve the depth of understanding required to reach the Teachers’ Standards (2012) at a level acceptable for Qualified Teacher Status.
