Back to news listings

Aspiring teachers with a Foundation degree or students who have successfully completed the first year of a teacher training course, or similar qualification, are being invited to snap up a limited number of places to train to teach in just two years.

The University of Worcester has a small number of direct entry places available on to the second year of the three year BA (Hons) in Primary Initial Teacher Education degree at Worcester for this September.  

Applicants will need GCSE English, Maths and Science at grade C or above, plus a Foundation Degree/A-levels or equivalent. They will also need to have recent, substantial experience in a primary classroom, pupil referral unit or similar.

The University has gained these additional places as a result of its sustained ‘Outstanding’ designation by Ofsted, gaining the highest possible outcomes during inspections in 2008 and 2010 and, as a result, has one of the very highest quality teacher training profiles in the country.

Nationally, University of Worcester primary teaching graduates are highly sought after by schools and are amongst the most employable in the country with excellent initial and longer term employment rates, close to 90%.

Professor Chris Robertson, Head of the University’s Institute of Education, said: “This is a great opportunity for aspiring teachers with appropriate qualifications and experience to train to teach and to gain an Honours Degree in just two years at an outstanding provider of initial teacher training whilst significantly reducing the level of fee payment and loan required.”
