Our Initial Teacher Education (ITE) team is based in the School of Education, on the award-winning Jubilee Campus. We hold monthly events from October through to July to give you the opportunity to find out more about starting your teaching career with the University of Nottingham, and our Ofsted-rated 'outstanding' PGCE courses. 

Teacher Training Open Day (online)

Wednesday 8 February 2023

Join our online open day to find out more about the University of Nottingham's Ofsted-rated 'outstanding Primary PGCE and Secondary PGCE courses and how to take the next step towards your new career.

The event will be split into two sections:


Talk by our Director of Initial Teacher Education, Stef Sullivan, and our Collaborative Partnerships Manager, Paula Hancock, explaining the postgraduate routes into teaching in England and exploring the University of Nottingham's programmes through a set of questions that will enable you to compare and contrast different teacher training courses. There will be an opportunity to ask general questions about teacher training and our courses.


You will then have the opportunity to meet with staff from our secondary subject teams and our primary team. They will tell you more about our individual courses and answer any questions you have.

This session will take place online via MS Teams. Please register your attendance so a link to join can be sent to you on the day.
