Approach to learning

We are dedicated to developing not just teachers and education professionals of the highest quality, but professionals who work effectively in a challenging environment that is subject to continual and often rapid changes.

We strive to provide the highest standard of training possible, using the expertise from the wide range of teaching organisations in the region to understand the demands faced by teachers and education professionals every day.

Your training at Birmingham City University will enable you to acquire the skills and attitude needed to be a successful teacher or education professional. Subsequent courses that are aimed at professional development will ensure your skills are up to date so that you can thrive in your chosen career.

Teaching is increasingly a team-based profession. As such, we will help you develop the skills necessary to work co-operatively with a wide range of people. Our training philosophy is firmly embedded in the belief that the well-being, development and progress of every single student is central to what we do.
