Could you be the West Midlands' next teacher?
We train more teachers than any other university in the West Midlands and enjoy strong partnerships with over 1,000 schools, colleges and training organisations across the region. We are the West Midlands training provider for the charity Teach First, which provides future leaders for schools in low income communities.
Placements are vital to our teacher training programmes. Whichever age phase you choose to specialise in as a trainee teacher, you will undertake placements that enable you to develop a clear understanding of how schools and other educational establishments operate.
