Our courses and research span all phases of learning and development, from the early years through to adult education.

Social Work

Who we are

We have developed hundreds of partnerships’ with nurseries, primary schools, secondary schools, colleges and other educational settings across the East Midlands and beyond. Our latest Ofsted inspection praised these partnerships, recognising the strength of our links and the range of specialist placements for trainees, 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 and qualification, Masters degrees including 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 educational settings across the Midlands and further afield, helping to improve practice, raise standards and change lives.
