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.

“The PGCE has provided me with a solid foundation of knowledge and an opportunity to develop and enhance my skills in a practical and supportive environment. With this thorough preparation, I have been able to take up a position as an NQT in England.”

The School of Education works with local and international organisations to ensure it delivers programmes which create graduates who are ready for the workplace.  To achieve this we currently work closely with the Gibraltar Department of Education as well as benefitting from the expertise of professionals within the Gibraltar Health Authority, the Care Agency and the Child Protective Services amongst others.
