The School of Teacher Education is strongly committed to partnership-led teacher education. The Partnership shares a vision and commitment built on values of mutual respect to support the development of high quality teachers. We recognise that the quality of our students gaining Qualified Teacher Status is dependent on the valuable work carried out in schools and ensuring a collaborative approach is maintained at every stage of the management and delivery process.

We are committed to a process of continuous monitoring and review. The continuing dialogue with our partners is a key driver for our improvement. We set ourselves the highest targets in the training of the next generation of teachers, and we know that these mirror your own standards for your schools and pupils.

We are committed to partnership in the fullest sense - that is, sharing strategic responsibility with you for shaping our provision at every level - in order to ensure the best possible progress for both pupils and student teachers. We are committed to being fully transparent with our partnership colleagues, we are continually working to consolidate and further develop existing partnerships whilst also establishing new strong and trusting relationships. In this spirit, we are actively seeking more colleagues from across the Partnership to join our already active steering committees, working groups and work with subject teams, and we warmly invite any feedback in addition to our formal evaluation processes.

We very much look forward to working with you.

As a successful Partnership the University works across a wide range of settings and providers. It is our aim to promote the highest standards in relation to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and adults.

Please see Liverpool Hope University's Safeguarding Policy.

Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility.

Safeguarding is a term which is broader than ‘child protection’ and relates to the action taken to promote the welfare of children, young people and adults and protect them from harm.

Safeguarding is defined in Working together to safeguard children 2013 as:

  • Protecting children from maltreatment
  • Preventing impairment of children’s health and development
  • Ensuring that children grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care and taking action to enable all children to have the best outcomes

Trainees in the School of Teacher Education should report any university based safeguarding concerns that arise to a member of staff, their Head of Department or one of the Designated Safeguarding Officers.

Safeguarding Officers:

  • Karen Rogan, Secondary T: 0151 291 3347 E:
  • Colin Wong, Primary T: 0151 291 3019 E:
  • Neil Barber, PGDE E:

Professional Placement

Teacher Education trainees who complete Professional Placement should ensure they are conversant with the Department Reporting a Concern Procedure. The procedure sets out the actions to be taken by a trainee who wishes to raise a concern in relation to their own Professional Placement.

Before commencing any professional placement, trainees should ensure they understand and are responsible for:

  1. Ensuring they have received a copy of and understand the implications of their setting safeguarding policy before commencing any programme, placement, event, visit or activity;
  2. Ensuring they have received the relevant policies and understand the processes for Whistleblowing, child and vulnerable adult protection and the Management of Cause for Concern on placement;
  3. Reporting any safeguarding concerns that arise following their placement procedures and if deemed necessary reporting to the university designated safeguarding officer.

Feedback on our students:

"Just regarding your two students, they were an absolute delight and pleasure to have in the class and an absolute credit to the University.

I can't praise them enough for their hard work and they both took the initiative at times to help me. They took part in the whole of school life by helping in the after school clubs and going on a historical school trip (in their own time).

They delivered good quality lessons which saw the children achieve their learning objectives and were always willing to listen and take advice.

They developed really good relationships with all the class and I don't think I have seen so many children cry on the day they left! I would like to add that I was personally sorry to see them go also.

I would certainly welcome more first year students."

Joseph Merivale (mentor) commenting on two students on placement at St John Bosco Primary School in Maghull

“At each stage the two students presented as confident,
professional and enthusiastic candidates…..Children
were excited and highly motivated by the stimulating and
clearly structured lesson and were inspired to want to
write their own poems. Quite simply, the lessons were
outstanding and contained key features that clearly offered
our pupils support,challenge, motivation and progression."
"Outstanding experience, the support from both my
class mentor and PLC was of the highest quality.
Always willing to give advice and feedback on all
aspects of school life. Gave me excellent ideas on how
to deal with difficult classes and situations. Really shaped
the way I will teach in the future."
