The School of Education at the University of Birmingham has a long tradition of delivering ITE courses. Its teaching has been graded as 'outstanding' for the third consecutive time by Ofsted inspectors which reaffirms the University’s status as one of the UK’s leading institutions for excellence in teacher training.
Their employability statistics are amongst the very best in the country and a significant proportion of those who train with them complete their Master’s degree (Teaching Studies) and move on to middle or senior leadership in schools across the Midlands and further afield. The quality of their ITE Partnership is praised repeatedly by schools themselves, by External Examiners and by Ofsted.
OFSTED (2013) commented that ‘Such is the confidence of schools that trainees from the University of Birmingham are of high quality, employment rates for both primary and secondary phases exceed national averages by some margin’.
