Initial Teacher Education

For those planning to go into Initial Teacher Education

We encourage undergraduates and graduates, especially in shortage subjects such as mathematics, physics, computing and modern foreign languages, interested in a career in teaching to apply to us for an initial discussion. On request, we can discuss initial placements for those planning to go into Initial Teacher Education.

Routes into Initial Teacher Education

We work with a range of partners to provide different routes for Initial Teacher Education.

In partnership with our local Higher Education Institutions, the University of Bristol and the University of the West of England, we offer high quality Initial Teacher Education through the School Direct and PGCE routes.

We also qualify to train teachers under the Teach First scheme and would welcome trainees through this unique route.

Partner schools

We enjoy good relationships with a range of schools across Bristol and can offer complementary placements for trainees.
