Teacher Training Courses

Our Primary and Secondary teacher training courses prepare top graduates for a career inspiring learning and transforming lives. Our teacher training courses work in partnership with a wide range of primary and secondary schools, sixth form colleges and special schools, across Birmingham and the surrounding authorities, to offer both core and School Direct routes for teacher training.

The University of Birmingham is delighted to award a travel grant of £150 to all general primary students on our University and School Direct programmes. This will be awarded to all successful applicants and will be available at the start of our teacher training courses.
