If you would like your teacher training to be based at a school where you can be fully immersed in the life of a teacher from day one, a school-led training course is for you. Within our alliance, we cater for both graduates and career changers who want hands-on training in a school environment.

What are the entry requirements?


You should have, or anticipate having, a good honours degree (2.1 or above) in a subject appropriate to teaching.  If you have a degree but don’t think it’s relevant to any subject on the curriculum, you can contact us for further advice.

Any offer of a place on the programme is made conditional on satisfactory Enhanced Disclosure from the Disclosure and Barring Service (formerly the Criminal Records Bureau – CRB) and a satisfactory Fitness to Teach Declaration.


To start teacher training you’ll need GCSEs (grade C or above) or their equivalent in English, maths and science.
