Teacher Training at Bradford College

We’re one of only a few providers nationally to provide Initial Teacher Training in a college environment.

We cover the full range of teacher training options, with options to qualify in Primary teaching (3-11), Secondary teaching (11-16) and Post-Secondary teaching (14 to adult). We offer a range of courses from degree-level study through to PGCE, in addition to specialised courses for those looking to change careers and get into teaching.

Campus life

Our campus environment is friendly and relaxed, providing a more intimate learning experience than many universities. Our small class sizes allow more opportunity for open discussion, one-to-one learning and support.

£500 in your pocket for existing students

If you're a full-time student at Bradford College and you go onto study a Higher Education course (HNC, HND, Foundation Degree, Degree) at our University Centre, you may be eligible for a £500 loyalty bursary. Once enrolled on your HE course you will receive your £500 incentive. This is your money, in cash, and is yours to spend. You don't need to pay it back.
