Teaching is one of the most rewarding careers as you help to shape the lives of young people.
Here at Staffordshire University’s Institute of Education, we can support you at every stage of your professional journey, from qualifying as a teacher through to leadership.
We specialise in postgraduate courses that prepare you for the ever-changing demands of the workplace.
But you get so much more than just a professional qualification. We offer the whole University experience, including:
- Access to a thriving academic community, with expertise in a wide range of school support initiatives and research areas
- Our new Woodlands Day Nursery and Forest School. The nursery provision caters for the children of University students and is also enabling us to develop specialist knowledge within the early years sector
- Connections with dozens of schools, including many that provide placements for our trainee teachers
The Institute of Education has a well-established suite of PGCEs. You can focus on primary education or train for a career as a secondary teacher in different specialist subjects. We also offer postgraduate qualifications for people wanting to teach in post-16 education, including colleges and universities.
The support doesn’t have to end with qualified teacher status.
Continue your professional development by taking our flagship Education MA either on campus or part-time via distance learning. The course provides a critical examination of education practice, policy and research and is relevant to the entire education sector.
Then there’s our Professional Doctorate in Education (EdD), a research degree for professionals wanting to take their expertise to the next level.
Whatever your career stage, we can help you develop your skills and education practice.
