We need school-based training places in all key stages, from nursery to year six. Over the duration of their degree our undergraduate trainees will have three periods of school-based training. Our PGCE students complete school-based training at two different schools.
Our undergraduate trainee teachers are either registered on a full-time Primary Education BA(Hons) with QTS programme (specialising in the age ranges of 3 to 7 or 5 to 11) or a full-time BA(Hons) with QTS programme (specialising in Maths or English) in the age range of 5 to 11.
We offer a full-time primary PGCE programme that enables our trainees to specialise in the age ranges of either 3 to 7 or 5 to 11. Our trainees are high calibre postgraduates, motivated and well positioned to thrive in this nine month programme.

Some of our school-based training is paired, with two of our trainees allocated to each class.
This allows our trainees to work collaboratively, develop ideas and discuss their own learning with the full support of both their partner and mentor.
Our undergraduate trainees are registered on the full-time BA (Hons) Physical Education with QTS, BA (Hons) 7-14 Education (English or mathematics) with QTS and the Troops to Teachers programme.
Trainees on postgraduate courses follow either the PGCE, School Direct Tuition with PGCE or the School Direct Salaried routes.
These trainees undertake school-based training in consistent block patterns. We have secondary postgraduate trainees training to teach in the following subjects.
- Art and Design
- Modern Foreign Languages
- Physical Education
- Physics with Mathematics
- Religious Studies
