Our initial teacher training for early years, primary and secondary was rated 'outstanding' by Ofsted in 2018. You will benefit from our partnerships with over 600 schools where you’ll gain practical school-based experience in a wide range of settings – large, small, rural and urban. You will also have access to facilities such as our curriculum centre, which houses more than 30,000 specialist resources for trainee teachers.
Choice of routes
At undergraduate level we offer Primary, with options to specialise in English or mathematics, Secondary Maths, Physical Education and courses designed for those leaving the armed forces. If you already hold an undergraduate degree our long-established PGCE programme includes Primary, Secondary and Further Education routes, with 12 specialist secondary subjects to choose from. We also offer Early Years Initial Teacher Training and the School Direct Training and Salaried programmes.
Our trainee teachers benefit from excellent employment rates after graduation that are consistently above the sector average. We will also continue to support you after you qualify through our NQT support programme, so you won't have to start your career on your own.
