About the accredited body
The University of Nottingham has been involved in teacher education for over 120 years, our postgraduate Initial Teacher Education provision is one of the largest in the country.
University tutors working with our trainees were successful and innovative teachers in schools and are now experienced teacher educators, committed to developing the next generation of teachers.
We have a strong emphasis on emotional wellbeing, supporting our beginning teachers to develop their own identities, take ownership of their own professional development and embed work ethics that enable them to thrive and enjoy teaching as a profession.
Training with disabilities and other needs
Admission to the course is subject to a satisfactory medical report, as you are required to meet the standards for 'Fitness to Teach'. It is important that you disclose any medical condition or disability so that we can look at the best way of supporting you if you are offered a place on the course.
The University of Nottingham is committed to creating an inclusive and equitable teaching and learning environment and we work closely with our partnership schools to ensure that any student who has a specific need is supported to thrive as a beginning teacher. We believe the teacher workforce should reflect the diversity of the pupils in our schools.
We have a wide range of facilities to meet the needs of students with special needs and disabilities. The School of Education has a dedicated Welfare Officer who works with students to ensure they access all available support from the University but also to support with any issues that specifically relate to being a student teacher.
We have many examples of supporting students with a range of needs and, in the past, have worked with students to plan placements in advance that accommodate their needs and mediated needs with partnership schools to ensure additional support is in place.
You are welcome to discuss any special needs or disabilities with us at any time during, or after, the application process.
Transform facilities also offer wheelchair access.
