Quality teaching

We offer a wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in an open and supportive environment that encourages frequent interaction between staff and students, with personal supervision.

Our courses will give you the opportunity to develop your skills and abilities through training in our local partnership schools. You will receive high quality support from both staff within schools and by our academic tutors from the department to work with you to become an effective teacher within a classroom environment.
