Secondary Initial Teacher Education (ITE)

Students doing science experiments 

As a trainee teacher, you will be joining a relevant and well-regarded programme to train to teach across the 11-16 age range and gain Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). Trainees will also often gain experience of the 16-18 age range, although they will not be formally assessed in this phase.

Why train to teach with us?

  • Active, practical and placement-based learning with a high level of support from tutors and partners in our diverse network of 250 educational settings.
