Teacher Training

Teaching the teachers

Wakefield College offers the full range of courses you need from starting out on the road to becoming a teacher to higher level professional development programmes for those who are already engaged in teaching or training.

About our Teacher Training Courses

Demand for teachers continues to remain high in the UK with the government offering generous financial packages to attract the best graduates to the classroom.

We partner with the University of Huddersfield on the teacher training courses and help develop the knowledge, skills and experience needed to successfully pursue a teaching career.

Our facilities include a dedicated teacher education training room to ensure students have the right environment in which to study and our students come from all walks of life.

Key Points
  • These courses are delivered on a flexible, part-time basis allowing you to combine studying with work and other commitments.
  • Dedicated teacher education team with a wealth of experience.
  • Excellent retention and achievement rates.

Teacher Training Courses

My self-esteem was not good before I joined Wakefield College; I was conscious that I had not achieved much in the way of academic qualifications at school or anywhere else for that matter. Now, thanks to the amazing support from my Wakefield College tutors, my confidence, sense of achievement and pride in my own accomplishments have all greatly increased, and I also hold a teaching qualification which enables me to help young students to make the same sort of progress themselves.
