The Institute of Education welcomes a wide range of schools into partnership.

PGCE Secondary

The University of Reading works in partnership with approximately 35 schools each year to provide secondary initial teacher training.

This partnership involves schools and the university working together to plan and deliver the secondary PGCE course as part of which students spend the equivalent of 24 weeks on placements in partnership schools.

More information on how to work with our Secondary programmes can be found here:Secondary School Partnerships

PGCert/Dip and MA Modular programmes

The Institute of Education works closely with local schools to provide quality courses leading to qualifications that are increasingly important for career development. These courses are supported by the Training Development Agency (TDA)

Our School-Based Research programme is a new innovation. We provide support for groups of teachers and schools to research questions relevant to their setting.The research projects are designed to raise standards and performance to build local capacity for evidence based teaching.

If your school is interested to become a research school contact the Director of Postgraduate Professional Development, Professor Rhona Stainthorp.

We provide also INSET courses on a wide range of topics. Talk to us about your needs.We can work with you in you school or provide facilities for courses within the Institute of Education.
