The School of Education has a long history of teacher education and adult education that stretches back over 100 years. We are located on the award-winning Jubilee Campus and enjoy strong partnerships with many schools and other organisations locally, nationally and internationally.
As well as training new teachers each year in the UK, we run an innovative PGCEi course in 15 countries. In close collaboration with the National College for Teaching and Leadership, we also provide a range of professional development programmes for school leaders, particularly in China.
The school has a broad programme of courses, largely focused on professional learning. The school is also home to the Centre for English Language Education, which offers innovative presessional and insessional programmes.
