PGCE Primary Full-time & Part-time

Primary school childrenThe York St John University PGCE interview process is designed to give academic staff and school partnership colleagues an opportunity to meet with prospective students to find out why they have applied for the course and to discuss in more detail the information provided on their application form. It also gives applicants an opportunity to talk about themselves and to demonstrate their practical and academic skills relevant to the programme through a variety of tasks.

Assessments are made during the day regarding the candidates:

  • Commitment to, experience and understanding of primary education
  • Personal and intellectual qualities
  • Competences in English and Mathematics
  • Ability to communicate effectively with adults and children in a school context

These assessments are made through group and individual interviews.  There is also an opportunity during the day to tour the campus.
