Teacher Training

The University of Nottingham's postgraduate Initial Teacher Education (ITE) provision is one of the largest in the country and has been rated by our latest Ofsted report as 'outstanding'.

We offer a range of teacher training routes across the primary and secondary phases, emphasising practical school-based training, supported by a thorough introduction to established and current educational theory and thinking. All of our teacher training courses are underpinned by a shared ethos and work toward shared aims.

Our school is research-led, with our research informing our teaching, and the quality of this work is widely recognised. We work with a range of schools across the region; our Initial Teacher Education courses are highly rated locally and a high proportion of our beginning teachers go on to work in partner schools each year.

Upon successful completion of our teacher training courses, you will achieve:

  • a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) with 60 masters level credits
  • Qualified Teacher Status by meeting Teacher Standards
