The Primary Teaching Selection Event will include a group discussion of a short journal article, an individual presentation, an interview and audit tests (literacy and numeracy).
Please be aware that our Primary Teaching course requires successful completion of the Primary Teaching Selection Event. Failure to attend a Selection Event will result in an unsuccessful application.
Ask questions: You can ask our current teaching student ambassadors any questions about the course and student life at Newport City Campus.
See our fantastic facilities: Our student ambassadors can take you on a campus tour to see our teaching facilities. You can also visit the Halls of Residence at our Newport City Campus or even stay in halls there the night before or night of your interview (subject to availability).
As part of the interview, you will be given 30 minutes to take an online numeracy test and 30 minutes to take an online literacy test.
The tests focus on the functional numeracy and literacy which teachers need in their professional role.
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."
