Almost 50% of the Faculty of Education's students choose to become teachers. Teaching is a job in which you will be part of a team but have the freedom to be creative and develop your own ideas. You will use your subject knowledge, professional understanding and enthusiasm to inspire future generations. At Liverpool Hope University we are passionate about supporting you to become the best teacher possible.
The University and the colleges which preceded it have a long and proud tradition of teacher education. Backed by major research programmes, teacher education is at the heart of the Faculty's work and we welcome students at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
Liverpool Hope offers a range of courses that lead to recommendation for Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). For primary teaching there is an undergraduate route - BA Primary Teaching with Qualified Teacher Status (QTS)
At postgraduate level there are full time and flexible routes to both primary and secondary teaching. If you want to become a secondary teacher you will need to have completed your degree with ideally at least half of it in the subject you want to teach.
Offering a quality student experience at both undergraduate and postgraduate level requires that we collaborate and offer provisions with a range of partners across the region. Our partners span a range of primary, secondary and other educational providers.
For more information about school partnerships, visit Moodle in the My Hope section of the Student/Staff Gateway.
At the Faculty of Education we promote teacher training courses to individuals from the Black and Minority Ethnic (BME)community. We support potential applicants from a BME background with course selection, guidance and application. Liverpool Hope University offers a number of routes actively promoting both undergraduates and postgraduates into teaching. We hold teaching advice events in the BME community in order to raise the profile of opportunities within teacher training and support that is available for students.
Liverpool Hope University understands the importance of a diverse teaching force that is reflective of Liverpool's communities. As a University we recognise the importance of education and the contribution role models make. This is why we support the BME Communities. We work with schools to encourage more pupils to embark on a career in teaching.
As a member of the Merseyside BME Steering Group we work with a range of HE partners, GTP consortia, schools and Merseyside community groups to actively encourage BME recruitment. We also support community organisations on a range of programmes such as Merseyside Black History Month.
