About the training provider

Training with OWLS

We run a challenging but rewarding School Direct PGCE programme which will help you to secure deep and meaningful knowledge and understanding of teaching within primary education. The OWLS cluster is a dynamic group of schools offering a diverse range of contexts and training enhancements.

Our staff have a long and successful history working closely in partnership with Edge Hill University. Edge Hill provides trainees with the academic bedrock of effective teaching and learning. In Edge Hill, your knowledge and understanding of research, both as a consumer and a leader, will be deepened. Within your tutor group, you will engage in preparation and reflection of your professional practices.

The cohort is big enough to share ideas and experiences, but small enough to offer opportunities for truly tailored provision and personal support. You will work alongside and be trained by outstanding, highly skilled, experienced class teachers who will guide, support and challenge you on your journey to becoming an outstanding practitioner. Training with OWLS will ensure that you gain a richly diverse set of experiences in school which will prepare you for a successful career in teaching. You will complete placements in at least two of our schools and visit the other schools for enhancement days. You will be supported by outstanding mentors as well as a visiting tutor from Edge Hill who is also your personal tutor.
