Teacher Training

Durham educating, engaging, enriching through partnership

Our Initial Teacher Education programmes were rated as 'Outstanding’ for all aspects of our provision in 2011 and again in April 2013. Full information can be found on: Ofsted inspection.

We offer several routes into teaching, at both undergraduate and postgraduate level, including programmes that lead to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and programmes that prepare trainees to work in international school contexts.

If you are from a black and minority ethnic (BAME) background and are thinking of becoming a teacher, MERIT can offer you support.

At the School of Education we are constantly looking at ways to improve our processes. Please can you take a quick moment to complete our Teaching Training Survey by following this link https://durham.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/itt-survey.

The Postgraduate Certificate in Education (International) is being offered, through a collaborative partnership with international schools in other parts of the world, for example The International School of Geneva and Wellington College.

The programme is suitable for those looking to train to teach Primary or Secondary pupils in an international school context.

Please note, this course is taught in the host country (Geneva/Switzerland) and does not carry Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). However, the full time route in Geneva has the International Baccalaureate Certificate in Teaching and Learning (IBCTL) attached to it.

We always welcome expressions of interest from colleagues leading other international school partnerships.

Our outstanding school partnerships forms an essential component of our Initial Teacher Education provision and we welcome new schools to join us.
