    Is this degree interesting? Also, would it be well suited to me if I want to become a primary school teacher? I would do this 3 year course and then go on to do a 1 year PGCE Primary Education.

    It would definitely be a route into primary school teaching. I am actually considering secondary school teaching in addition to primary so I decided to go with a BA English lit (Hons) followed with a PGCE. Obviously, my degree lacks hands-on experience and I have heard that the degree in primary education involves a lot of placement work.

    I have heard from many people that it is just a degree that equips you with sufficient information in the areas of the primary curriculum in addition to studying a specialism. Does your BA not come with QTS?
    My cousin actually did the degree a while back and she said it was great but she regrets not doing a BA in an academic subject that she enjoyed more followed by a PGCE to gain QTS. Although she did state that she has never had any issues finding positions with her degree.

    As much as you're answer is appreciated, this thread is old. I doubt the OP would be looking at this thread.
