Welcome to the School of Education Teacher Training Open Days

Have you considered a career in teaching?

Our Initial Teacher Education (ITE) courses have been rated Outstanding by Ofsted. Our ITE team is based in the School of Education, on the award winning Jubilee Campus. We hold open days each year to give people who are interested in becoming teachers an opportunity to find out more about why the University of Nottingham is an excellent place to begin your teaching career and the training routes we offer: PGCE and School Direct (all award QTS and PGCE with 60 masters level credits).

Upcoming open days at the University

You will have the opportunity to talk informally to tutors and alumni, tour the School of Education and find out more about us, our ethos and outstanding courses.

Presentations, taster sessions and application workshops will also be available for you to take part in. 

Our next series of general open days are to be arranged.
