At the core of the School of Education’s ethos is our mission to “shape personal and professional futures through the pursuit of education, training, and research through its programmes in the field of education”.
From our initial teacher-training programme to research degrees, our fundamental purpose is to promote intellectual curiosity and nurture inclusive, ethical and innovative professionals and academics.
We specialise in delivering a high quality, personal learning experience both on campus and whilst on placement.
