At the Institute of Education we offer a range of programmes, both University-led and school-led, enabling you to train to teach at early years, primary or secondary level.


Early Years

Do you want to specialise in working with babies and young children? Early Years Teachers work in a wide range of settings across the children's workforce.



Would you like to teach primary aged children? The teaching content is broad and covers the whole range of national curriculum subjects.



Do you wish to teach 11-18 year olds? You will need to specialise in a particular subject.
