Head of School's Welcome

“Dear School Colleagues

As Head of the School of Education at Birmingham City University, I would like to welcome you as valued partner in the delivery and support of initial teacher training. Your support as a placement host, mentor and supporter is invaluable in ensuring that our trainees get a first-class experience on their route to QTS. We hope that our trainees are able to add value to your school or college while they are with you and that they really become a part of your school community.

We very much run our partnership as a true collaboration between the School of Education and our partners - bringing benefit to both parties. Whether you are an individual school, a college, a Teaching School Alliance or a School Direct partner - we hope to work with you to develop the teachers of the future.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions, queries or feedback. We are always happy to hear from you.

We are also here to help you with any training or staff development needs you may have - just give our partnership office a call and we will be happy to discuss this.”

Professor Kevin Mattinson, Head of School of Education
