    Which university is the best for BEd in Primary Education (with QTS at the end)?
    Don't just say the one you go to unless you really do think it is the best place.

    I've heard Canterbury Christ Church is good.

    The TDA has it's top graded providers as: "
    Bath Spa University, Birmingham City University, University of Brighton, School of Education, Brunel University, University of Cambridge, Canterbury Christ Church University, Edge Hill University, University of Exeter , University of Northampton, Northumbria University, Oxford Brookes University, University of Plymouth, University of Reading, University of Cumbria, University of Warwick, University of Wolverhampton, University of Worcester "

    http://dataprovision.tda.gov.uk/publ...vf=_hlk_141058

    Also check the ofsted reports of the places you're looking at.

    I'm at Canterbury Christ Church, so although biased, I would say that it is very good. The quality of the course is just one thing you'll need to consider however- what's the city like? how far away from home? good transport links? Good luck

    bear in mind though whether she wants to do a BEd or a PGCE because some of those universities are for PGCE only...for instance, exeter no longer offers an education degree and brunel is pgce only, i know for sure. and then you also want to see whether they are three or four years long as costs might affect that decision. hope you find what your looking for :p:

    Would she consider moving to Scotland? Strathclyde is very good for primary teaching.

    it'll depend on whether she wants to actually teach in scotland coz you can't do a degree up there and then teach in england. the education systems are different.

    thats really weird coz i really wanted to go to edinburgh (not that i can spell it haha) but found that i wouldn't be able to teach in england if i did. or i had do some extra course in england or something so i thought i might as well stay down here. hmmmm thats strange...maybe i was misinformed! :confused:

    Hey just to let you all know, if you study a b.ed program in Scotland you are able to teach in England and Wales(as that is what my sister is doing just now and has done since she passed her NQT year!) without completing another course. It is if you study the degree in England or Wales that you need to sit an extra course so you can be qualified up here. I don't know why this is but they seem to think it is easier to transfer the knowledge from the the Scottish curriculum to the English/Welsh one.

    p.s I am currently studying Primary Teaching in Aberdeen University and it is both a brilliant course and university!
