Hello

I have just registered for the OU (BA) Honours Education Studies, Primary Course. I am wondering if anyone is currently doing this course and can provide some information on it? I am currently working in a school as a School Support Assistant (classroom assistant), therefore getting a placement will not be a problem for me.

I am planning on doing the course full time as I only work 4 days 9am - 3pm so plenty of time for studying

I have various questions but would be very grateful if anyone is able to provide the pros and cons of doing this course with the OU. I have also applied to Strathclyde University to do a Pre-Access Course to Primary Education which guarantees access to the BA for 2019. Is it worth while doing the OU and then a PGDE or doing the access course first?

Looking forward to reading everyone's experiences and reviews of this course and the OU.

Thanks

Hi I'm doing the same thing I want to be a primary teacher I've just register with the ou primary education then im gonna take a post graduate teacher training course! I think the OU as you can commit all your time to your studies and still have a job I looked round many universities but it was all 37 hours a week unpaid work and other days in uni and other days course work at home and it's not practical when you need to support your self so I chose the ou so I could work while I study good luck with your course

I am looking to study also in October. I have a full time job so this was perfect for me. Would anyone recommended getting a job in a school as a TA whilst doing this course? I’m very nervous about everything working out.

Me too. Just awaiting funding confirmation. V excited to get started! I work in a primary school too as an ASN assistant.
I would say it’s worth looking into working in a primary school if you can -it’s great experience and allows you to observe teachers/lessons and get to work with the children in the classroom setting.
Good luck everyone!
