Welcome to the Swansea University Schools' Partnership.
SUSP is committed to delivering high quality initial teacher education that meets the needs of a Welsh education system undergoing significant curriculum transformation.
The one year full-time Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) Primary with Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) offered by the Swansea University Schools' Partnership (SUSP) connects research and policy to primary practice.
Our PGCE Primary programme will allow you to develop teaching skills across the primary age phase and develop your understanding of the new curriculum in Wales. You will work with experienced, enthusiastic University tutors and mentors in our Partnership schools across South Wales to develop and reflect upon your own teaching practice.
The programme is unique in that after experiencing teaching placements across the primary age phase, you can chose to specialise in Foundation Phase, Key Stage 2 or All-Age contexts. This will not only enhance your knowledge of teaching and the curriculum in your specialist phase, but also deepen your understanding of how children learn and develop.
All aspects of the SUSP programme are underpinned by research, allowing you to benefit from the University's national and international reputation.
With the Partnership’s strong commitment to wellbeing, you will experience high quality personal, professional and academic support throughout the year.
