The University of Cumbria is one of the country’s leading providers of teacher education and School Direct partnerships.
Although the University was formed in 2007, they have been training excellent teachers for over 50 years.
One of the institutions that formed the University of Cumbria, St Martin’s College, was well known in the education sector for its excellence in teacher training – and as a University, they haven’t lost that edge.
University of Cumbria’s recent Ofsted report highlighted the passion the trainees have for their chosen profession. They praised the students’ ability to plan motivating lessons and reflect on their teaching.
