What is special about our Initial Teacher Education?
We are a leading regional provider of Initial Teacher Education (ITE). Consistently high achieving in Ofsted inspections and in the Guardian and Times league tables, we are held in high regard by local employers as a very good quality training provider.
We are looking for potential trainee teachers from under-represented groups who are resourceful, communicate well, have a wide range of interests and demonstrate enthusiasm for working with young people. Building upon these qualities we will help you develop into an effective classroom professional, with the capacity to design and develop imaginative, stimulating teaching approaches for the pupils in your care.
