Teacher training courses

As Bradford’s leading ITE provider we offer a range of teacher training courses that cover Primary, Secondary and Post-Secondary sectors. Our students enjoy a tailored learning experience fully supported by a dedicated team of tutors and school/college-based mentors. We have a strong tradition of producing effective practitioners grounded in educating children and adults in a multi-ethnic world. We have excellent employability rates for our graduates with over 80% directly entering the teaching profession.

The latest Ofsted inspection report for the Initial Teacher Education (ITE) Partnership at the college has rated our provision as Good. The report in August, following the inspection in June, found that we provided good outcomes for trainees, good quality training across the partnership and also assessed the leadership and management to be good.
