"This is exactly the teacher I want to become. I really need to come here"

Following our latest open day at Newport campus, we kindly received feedback from a parent whose daughter wanted to study with us on our Primary Initial Teaching Education with QTS course. We are very grateful for the lovely feedback and wanted to proudly share it with you.

Her parent said:

“Since Year 7 my daughter has said she has wanted to be a junior schoolteacher and her choice of profession has not changed.  She wants every child to feel an important part of the class and that every child feels special regardless of their abilities. 

The other teaching courses we have looked at seem to focus on ‘we are the experts’, and ‘we will show you the best way to teach the children’. But your course seems to focus on ‘it is your responsibility as a teacher to ensure you adapt your teaching skills to fit around the needs of each child and every part of the child and we will teach you all the skills to be able to do that’. 

It warms your heart when your daughter turns to you in the middle of the open day to say 'they understand me, this is exactly the teacher I want to become, I really need to come here'.”

We feel this quote captures the nature of our course perfectly and fills us with pride knowing that we make a difference to the lives and education of young people.

On our Primary ITE course, you will learn how to make a positive and lasting impact on the next generation. You will be guided by our dedicated team and taught in an environment that fully prepares you for the world of work. 

You will get the opportunity to meet and chat with our staff and explore our facilities at our on-campus events, where you'll learn more about our course and find out how we can help you become a forward-thinking, inclusive and passionate teacher.

Find yourself amongst likeminded people and be inspired at our next open day.
