The University of Cambridge Faculty of Education

The University of Cambridge Faculty of Education has a longstanding, successful initial teacher training (ITT) partnership with both primary and secondary schools in the Cambridge and Suffolk Schools Alliance. We are committed to continuing and building upon this partnership, in which both parties have joint responsibility and distinctive roles for training new entrants to the profession.

We are an outstanding ITT provider, offering teacher education courses which combine academic excellence with top-quality professional training. The Faculty and its students benefit from being part of a world-class university where research with school partners constantly enhances the quality of taught courses and where students and teachers alike can work at the cutting edge of international knowledge in a wide range of subjects.

Cambridge and Suffolk Schools Alliance ITT trainees who are following either a PGCE or a School Direct (training) route undertake the Faculty PGCE course. The PGCE is a stimulating and challenging course, designed to prepare trainees to become outstanding classroom teachers and equip them for leadership roles in the future. The Faculty is responsible, in partnership with schools, for quality assurance of all its ITT programmes. The Faculty is also committed to providing teachers with continuing professional development and opportunities for research and development through its full range of courses and higher degrees which enhance teachers’ skills, knowledge and understanding, both of pedagogy and research.
