Initial Teacher Education

Throughout the West Midlands there are numerous opportunities to engage in a school led Initial Teacher Training programmes, both primary and secondary.

Whilst the majority of programmes are full time and fee funded, a number of salaried places are available for suitable candidates and an increasing number of providers are offering part time routes. All programmes lead to QTS (Qualified Teacher Status) with the vast majority offering a PGCE (Post Graduate Certificate in Education) with Masters Level credits.

Depending on the phase and subject applicants wish to teach there may be tax-free bursaries available.
