LJMU Initial Teacher Education Programme logo

PGCE/DE Primary 3-7: Section G

Welcome to the start of your teacher training journey in Partnership with LJMU. We are delighted that you have chosen to begin your career as one of our students and look forward to supporting you once you start on your chosen programme. Our dedicated Partnership website www.itt-placement.com is open to all staff, students and schools in our Partnership. During the course of your training, you will become very familiar with it. We ask new students to focus on this Section (G) to begin to prepare for their course, but you may wish to explore further sections before starting your training, particularly Section D .

At your interview (whether at LJMU or in one of our Partner Schools) you should have been provided with a booklet containing key information and tasks for you to complete prior to starting the programme. A copy of this booklet can be downloaded from this page too. We have left it in Word format so that, if you choose to do so, relevant tasks within it can be completed electronically. You can also click on the useful websites at the end in order to undertake any research required. Please use this booklet to guide you through the pre-course requirements and how to demonstrate that you have met all your conditions prior to enrolment. Please also complete the tasks required of you, so that you can start your programme confidently in September.

We also suggest that Secondary students download a copy of the relevant SKDD* Journal from Section E. You could use this document to help you identify strengths and areas for development to work on in the first couple of months on the course.
