Tips for your Primary Teaching Interview Day:


My Job as a Primary School Teacher

Rebecca Prosser teaches a Year 2/3 class at a primary school in Gloucester.

"The part I enjoy most about being a primary teacher is seeing the faces of the children light up when they achieve something and knowing that I helped them to achieve that. Teaching is a fantastic profession because you know that every day is going to be different, there will always be something new to teach or a new challenge to keep you on your toes.

I simply wouldn’t be doing the job I’m doing now if it wasn’t for my teacher training degree at University of South Wales. The course offers so much and is a fantastic place to study."

Rebecca Prosser, BA (Hons) Primary Teaching graduate.
