Primary and Secondary teaching is incredibly rewarding: you will inspire pupils to love your subject and share your experiences continuing their journey as lifelong learners and shaping their futures. We provide a collaborative learning atmosphere where shared knowledge and understanding create an environment that supports teacher training and development at every stage.

A career in primary teaching is incredibly rewarding; you get to work with children when they are at their most inquisitive and open minded. We prepare our trainee teachers to rise to the challenge of ensuring every child has the best possible start in life, regardless of their circumstances and backgrounds. Alongside the sheer joy of being in a busy classroom, you will become a highly-skilled professional with the ability to change lives.

Secondary Teaching
Find out more about our secondary programme Image

As a secondary teacher you get to explore your subject every single day. And there’s always something more to learn about it from a young adult’s perspective! The best secondary teachers inspire young adults to love their subjects and to continue to love learning once they leave school. They also provide excellent pastoral care to their students, helping them to build the personal and social skills which will determine how successful and happy they are in later life. The challenge is to make sure every single student has the same opportunities, regardless of their background.
