Welcome to the Faculty of Education, an inspirational learning environment founded on the expertise of our teaching staff and the dedication and success of our students and alumni. 

Supporting educational aspirations, innovation and working collaboratively with local communities are central to our ethos. The range and diversity of our partnerships allows us to make a significant impact on the education and training of the school and children’s workforces. Schools, colleges and service providers share our commitment to supporting those who teach, support and develop young people and we play a key role in raising standards and improving their life chances.

We maintain strong relations with the City of Manchester, Cheshire East Council and the wider North West region through diverse education, enterprise and community projects. Teaching is closely linked to the latest educational research led by our renowned Education and Social Research Institute. Recent research sponsors include: the Department of Education; the Wellcome Trust; the European Union, the Esmee Fairbair Foundation; Barclays, Microsoft and Siemens/Lego.

Our work helps to deliver government objectives. The Faculty has won major contracts to deliver national projects including Early Years Teacher, Mathematics Specialist Teacher and the National Award for Special Educational Needs Coordinators. 

We look forward to meeting and working with you at Manchester or Cheshire.
