Our PGCE courses provide trainees with a combination of school-based learning and university-based learning, with our trainees spending roughly half of their time in one of our local partner schools.
We are always looking to build new relationships with local schools. We work closely with more than 150 education establishments in Greater Manchester, Lancashire and Cheshire to deliver our school-based learning.
We will provide high-quality training for 'professional mentors' in your school and ensure that your staff are supported by experienced members of our team.
Staff from partnership schools assist in the course planning and delivery. Coordinators help to plan the year and representatives on the advisory group plan training and other events. Each subject on the course is planned by a small group of partnership teachers and tutors.

We are keen to extend our alternative routes into teaching such as School Direct with schools who are:
- committed to developing outstanding teachers as part of a community of practice
- looking to add to the research on informed practice in education with a leading global university.
