Our 2020 ITE programmes are all going ahead. Please be assured that the University of Birmingham is planning our 20-21 ITE programmes with great care so that we can offer you an excellent preparation for a career in teaching. We are ready to respond swiftly to national decisions about schools opening, and are preparing for our programmes to run in a range of scenarios. We are working closely with our partnership schools as we plan and our school based mentors are looking forward to meeting their students as soon as this is possible.
In recent weeks, we have seen some amazing work going on in schools across the country as our committed, talented, resilient and imaginative workforce rise to the enormous challenge of ensuring their pupils are safe, that their basic needs are met and that their education continues. Please do seriously consider a career in teaching - you are joining a wonderful profession.
