Meet us: teacher training events and contacts

Webinars and online sessions

Unable to make it to the events listed? Make sure to submit an enquiry so we can keep you updated about the courses you're interested in studying.

Our aim is to take you from why you might want to consider a career in teaching, through the different routes into teaching and on to the questions you might be asked at interview.

You will have direct access to the course tutors, all of whom are experienced and qualified teachers. The event will help prepare you to make an informed decision about teaching and PGCE teacher training courses.

We will aim to meet your specific needs and questions irrespective of whether you have always wanted to be a teacher or if teaching is a change of career and something that you have only recently considered.

Our aspiration is that the online open evening will provide a comprehensive, accessible and interactive event for anyone thinking about teaching as a possible next step.

Open events

We run open days and evenings throughout the year to promote our teacher training programmes. Please be aware that there are currently postponed due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

Drop-in sessions

At the beginning of every month we run a drop-in session from our on-site Starbucks cafe. Join us for a coffee and a chat about our different teacher training routes as well as the support that we can offer you during your application and throughout you studies. Please be aware that there are currently postponed due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
