Being one of the first educators in a child’s life isn’t without its pressures but can be hugely rewarding. As a primary teacher, you will work with your pupils closely over a range of subjects, and you will see them flourish and learn under your care.
Primary school teachers in the UK teach children between the ages of 4 to 11 (Reception to Year 6). As a primary teacher, it will be your job to ensure all your pupils have good numeracy and literacy levels based on their ability before going to secondary school. You will generally be based in your own classroom and be responsible for a single class. (Some specialist subject teachers, such as PE teachers, will teach different classes and year groups.)
Unless your undergraduate degree is a Bachelor of Education (BEd) or a BA/BSc with Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), you will need to gain your QTS status before being able to teach as a qualified teacher.
