Leeds Trinity University has an established reputation, regionally and nationally, of being one of the UK's leading providers of teacher training courses. Our outstanding courses are taught by a highly experienced team that understands the learning needs of children, from the early years of 0–5 years, right through to primary education of 5–11 years. According to the latest National College for Teaching and Leadership figures 99% of our recent Primary Education graduates are working in teaching positions.
Our close partnerships with over 600 primary education and secondary education schools will prepare you for a successful teaching career. You'll learn and apply practical teaching skills by engaging with school-based training, giving you a deep understanding of the Teachers' standards.
We recognise the diversity of settings where good teachers are needed, so we also give students the chance to complete professional work placements in alternative contexts such as museums, schools abroad and in special provision schools.
Our undergraduate degree courses and PGCE training courses offer a range of study options to choose from. We provide tried-and-trusted PGCE Provider-led and PGCE School Direct study routes for PGCE training courses to help you progress with your career aspirations.
