The Faculty of Education is comprised of two academic Schools and has a proud history of training teachers and education professional for over 100 years.

School of Teacher Education and Professional Development 

Our teaching staff have specialist experience in their respective academic and professional fields. However, we also recognise the importance of close collaboration between departments to ensure that students benefit from a multi-disciplinary approach. Our core values of learner aspiration, attainment and equality and commitment to success, are shared across the Faculty, with each school retaining its own identity in terms of student experience.
