The TEAP course runs late September 2022 until May 2023 and will be offered face-to-face. The course will run on two weekday evenings, specific details of which will be announced in September.

  • Students will spend time in a school setting observing and participating in the life of the school. Insights gained from this experience will be documented using a reflective journal.

Those who successfully complete the course and fulfill the minimum entry requirements for the B Ed (Primary Teaching) programme will be offered a place on the B Ed programme in MIC.
