Train to Teach

The University of Manchester’s PGCE tutors attend the Department for Education’s Train to Teach events in Manchester and across the UK.

The next event you can find us at will be the Train to Teach Roadshow on Thursday 25 January 2018, between 4.30pm and 8pm.

The events are designed for anyone who has a degree and is interested in teaching - particularly those who are considering starting their initial teacher training in September 2018. It offers a great opportunity to get all your questions about teaching training answered.

Please visit the Train to Teach website to register your attendance. 

Taster sessions

We have teamed up with schools in the local area to provide graduates with Primary and Secondary teaching taster sessions.

This involves spending a full day at a school for the opportunity to attend an assembly, sit in on a lesson and discuss postgraduate teacher training with a current head teacher and staff from The University of Manchester. Our upcoming dates are as follows: 

  • Tuesday 16 January 2018 - Plymouth Grove Primary School

To register your interest in one of these sessions please email with your full name and the date you are interested in.
