We believe it’s important that you are challenged and encouraged to become a resilient and creative professional. Just as importantly, we want to support and care for you to help you thrive.

You’ll be placed with consideration; you’ll be nurtured throughout your study, and guidance will be available to you as your career progresses.

  • We'll give you a trained, experienced teacher as a mentor during your placements
  • We'll give you a range of highly experienced University tutors to support you academically
  • We'll train you in safeguarding before going into schools
  • We'll help you with any disabilities you choose to disclose, supporting you to overcome any health barriers and become the teacher we want you to be.

"The best thing about the course at Warwick was working with all four of my mentors and tutors. They have believed in me at every stage of my training years and modelled leadership and what true investment and commitment to people look like to me." (Samson, Secondary Mathematics Teacher)
