We have extensive partnership links with over 600 early-years settings, primary schools, secondary schools, colleges and academies across the East Midlands. Our latest Ofsted inspection praised these partnerships, recognising the strength of our links with local schools and the range of specialist placements for trainee teachers, giving them access to high-quality training.
Our links with our partners and our broad range of expertise enable us to develop and support our students at every level, through undergraduate degrees, postgraduate training, Masters degrees and doctorates, and continuing professional development (CPD) and leadership development for in-post educators.
We have a growing international reputation, but we have not lost touch locally; our staff work regularly with children and teachers in schools across the Midlands, helping to improve practice, raise standards and change lives. Check out our guide to the various routes into teaching.
