Train to Teach - Primary Education

Leeds Trinity University > Subject Areas > Train to Teach - Primary Education


Leeds Trinity University has an established reputation, regionally and nationally, of being one of the UK's leading providers of teacher training courses. Our outstanding courses are taught by a highly experienced team that understands the learning needs of children, from the early years of 0–5 years, right through to primary education of 5–11 years. According to the latest National College for Teaching and Leadership figures 99% of our recent Primary Education graduates are working in teaching positions.

Our close partnerships with over 600 primary education and secondary education schools will prepare you for a successful teaching career. You'll learn and apply practical teaching skills by engaging with school-based training, giving you a deep understanding of the Teachers' standards.

We recognise the diversity of settings where good teachers are needed, so we also give students the chance to complete professional work placements in alternative contexts such as museums, schools abroad and in special provision schools.


Undergraduate Primary Education courses:




Assessment Only

We provide Assessment Only (AO) routes for Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) aimed at experienced practitioners, and Higher Level Teaching Assistants (HLTAs) that cover teaching and any other unqualified teaching roles in schools.

We want you to pass, so we’ve put together some great advice on how you can give yourself the best chance of passing the skills test.
