The University of Birmingham will continue to provide training and support for new teachers

Teacher training at the University of Birmingham has been reaccredited by the UK Government’s Department for Education for 2024.

The announcement today of the initial teacher education programme for 2024 will see the University of Birmingham continue to prepare new teachers and support the development of practicing teachers.

Professor Deborah Youdell, Head of the School of Education said:

“The School of Education is committed to supporting teachers to become insightful, skilled and creative professionals who have a deep understanding of their specialism and of how quality and equity come together in education and who have real options, motivation and support to achieve a sustained and rewarding career in teaching and education leadership. We are delighted to be continuing to do that.”

“We have powerful partnerships with schools across Birmingham and the West Midlands, including the University of Birmingham School. We recognise that the value of universities, schools and other providers working together in partnership to develop and provide the range of development opportunities that teachers need.”

As well as existing routes into a career in teaching, the University has also developed a Degree Apprenticeship in Educational Leadership and the Early Career Framework (ECF) for new teachers in partnership with Capita. The University was also announced as the academic partner to the new National Institute of Teaching, providing leading-edge expertise from across the University and validating NIOT’s degrees.
