Your best bet is to choose a uni in the area where you want to work. It's not essential, but it will be helpful when it comes to finding jobs, and it doesn't really matter which uni you do your ITT course at.

Hello,

I am a Primary Education (3-7) student and whilst YSJ isn't on your list, I wanted to offer you some advice!

When looking for a Primary Education degree, the best thing you can do is chat to the students already on the course. Primary Education is very intense, we can be in university for 20 hours a week and that is without placement. Therefore, the students know best and can tell you exactly what it is like. I could talk for hours about why I chose YSJ and why it is great for teaching. The best way to do this is through open days, campus tours or see if any universities have a chat with students feature. We have all of these:
https://www.yorksj.ac.uk/study/chat-with-our-students/
https://www.yorksj.ac.uk/study/under.../campus-tours/.

A head teacher when I was on placement said to me that if they could only hire YSJ students they would. We even get placements in Leeds which speaks volume when you consider that there are two universities that do teacher training in Leeds.

What would you like to get out of your degree? Would you like academics that treat you as a name and not a number and get to know you? This is the atmosphere we have at YSJ and I have never been short of support. Or would you prefer a bigger university? Do the universities offer a module to specialise or would you prefer not to do this?

You should also look at which city you would like to live in for three years! What are your priorities and which city delivers them? I wrote a post about living in York as a student: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=6972876.

I hope this helps!
Lydia

Hi there,

At Chichester, we have a distinguished history in training teachers, we've been doing it for over 180 years and were recently named a Top 10 university for Education (Guardian League Tables 2021). We have a fantastic, experienced academic team that will offer you high levels of support from the get go and will really get to know you as a student. Our students receive substantial teaching experience in schools and other settings each year of the programme. Here are the amount of placements you can expect:

• Placements in Year 1 – a group, 2-week placement to gain confidence in schools
• Placements in Year 2 – 7 weeks in school on main placement.
• Placements in Year 3 – students will be looking after a whole class for 10 weeks.
• Students also get a 2 -week specialism placement – could be in a museum, hospital, outdoor learning centres, nurseries, any school settings.


This breadth of placement opportunities allows our students to develop professional knowledge and teaching skills so they leave career ready. In fact, our Primary Teaching course has a 95% employment rate (Discoveruni 2021). As we are in partnership with University of Chichester Academy Trust, we have connection to and work with hundreds of partnership schools and organisations, which provides our students with key industry contacts.

Here's some resources you may find helpful for finding out more info:
• BA (Hons) Primary Teaching (QTS) course page
Chichester on Demand - a site with a range of video and downloadable content, check out the Education and Teaching page for more course information!
Unibuddy - here you can chat to our current students and ask them questions about courses, university life, accommodation etc. Olivia is a BA (Hons) Primary Teaching QTS student!
• Keep an eye on our Open Days page, booking will be open for Autumn Open Days very soon! It's a great opportunity to chat to lecturers, visit campus and find out more about us!

If you have any questions or would like to be put in contact with a lecturer, please let us know, we're more than happy to help

Thanks, Sian
