Have you ever had an inspiring teacher?

Someone who changed the way you thought about things and opened up a world of possibilities? Few careers are as rewarding as teaching.

Our Teacher Training courses could help you go on to make a real difference to people, young and old. And while you’re studying you’ll get practical experience that will transform your own prospects too. 

Great teachers aren’t born. They’re made.

Thanks to our links with schools, colleges, early years facilities and local authorities, you will have the chance to get out there and get teaching. We aim to get you teaching early on, right from the first term in fact. There are lots of opportunities along the way to try different teaching settings, to give you a better feel of the options for your career. 

Financial support while you train to teach (scholarships and bursaries)

The Department for Education provides financial support for trainee teachers on some secondary and lifelong learning subjects, either as a bursary or scholarship. The eligibility requirements for financial support vary depending on your individual circumstances and the amount you can expect to receive will depend on the subject you choose to teach and your degree classification and relevant academic qualifications. If your degree isn’t in the subject you wish to teach, you may be eligible for a funded course to increase your subject knowledge before starting your training. You can find more information about available training bursaries on the Department for Education’s teacher training website.

We never forget what the end goal is - to get you in front of students so you can develop their talents.

So, we make sure there’s always plenty of opportunity to do just that. Even in your course work you’ll be able to use mock classrooms for Early Years and Primary practice, and we also offer a science lab and music room. You should feel right at home in the school environment.

Depending on the subject and the age range, competition for teaching posts can be really high. So, we give you the chance to stand taller than the rest, with the latest research, cutting-edge teaching and exciting placement opportunities.
