Routes into teaching

The primary teaching route covers the age range from 3-11 years old or nursery through to year 6.  Institutions will specify whether they cover some or all of this age range. Some institutions will offer a programme with a pathway from 3-7, some 5-11 some 3-11. All will offer some coverage across the range but with more specialism in one or other of the age phases unless you are on a 3-11 pathway.  The 3-7 pathway is for those people who really want to work with the youngest children including those in nursery and reception.
