We offer a one year course leading to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE). Our School Direct training programme offers excellent bespoke and hands-on initial teacher training opportunities for primary teachers and leaders of the future.
We work collaboratively with York St John University and our partner primary schools to provide high-quality, diverse and first class school-led teacher training. We are committed to delivering outstanding education and training that is current, relevant and that provides excellent opportunities for student teachers to develop their knowledge and understanding of their subject and wider educational issues, so that they are equipped to be outstanding teachers and leaders.
