Welcome to the Primary PGCE course. We are extremely proud of the course and the achievements of our students, many of whom have gone on to gain employment in schools all over the country and indeed many of our partnership schools. You may well be supported by a former University of Cumbria PGCE student when you’re on placement.

Registration and your First Week

The course begins on Monday 11th January, with online registration from 9am. Details regarding your registration and what to bring can be found on the University Registration web pages. You will receive an email with more details and further information the week before your registration date.

This is the beginning of your first full week at university.

At 12, there will be an introductory lecture with your programme team which you will access through Microsoft Teams by following this link - Click here to join the meeting

The programme team are working on your timetable to make sure you have a combination of socially distanced face to face learning, online learning (both synchronous and asynchronous) and school-based learning most weeks. We work very hard to ensure that we are following all government guidelines around safety during the COVID situation. This does mean that things are liable to change.

We look forward to seeing you on 11th January.
