BA PRIMARY EDUCATION WITH MUSIC (QTS) X1W3

Full Time: 3 Years
Study BA Primary Education with Music Specialism (QTS) and pursue your passion for music to a degree level whilst training to be a specialist within primary education.
This course will enable you to get a job as a primary school teacher following graduation. There is a high demand for specialist primary school teachers and many of our graduates go on to become subject leaders. Furthermore, the Institute of Education is one of the top departments in the UK and has strong links with local schools.
You will divide your time between studying modules on professional skills and curriculum subjects, and developing your skills as a musician. The former will introduce you to the core National Curriculum subjects, including Information and Communications Technology (ICT). You will develop skills essential to the role of a teacher, including leadership, classroom management, and evaluation and assessment. You can then put these skills into practice through professional placements, which take place throughout the course. Additionally you will study professional legal requirements, and investigate the role of the teacher and how children develop.
In music you will develop your skills as a solo and ensemble performer, including improvising, composing, conducting and ensemble directing. Additionally, you will develop your theoretical knowledge through modules on music history, analysis and research into music education. This will provide you with a thorough knowledge of music alongside a grounding in tackling the key issues and challenges that you may face within the classroom. Finally, there is a key component within the Music Specialism for you to develop leadership skills in order to lead music in primary schools.
