Learn to Teach Locally


Liverpool Hope University has a long established tradition of delivering high quality Teacher Education. Our founding college, Warrington Training College, opened in 1844 with the remit of educating teachers and over the past 169 years, Liverpool Hope has continued to develop and invest in our teacher training programmes. We are therefore pleased to welcome and support opportunities to Learn to Teach Locally- an innovative route into teaching, which enables schools to take a leading role in Initial Teacher Training (ITT). One of the key benefits for trainees is the opportunity for development and progression.

Our Strategic Delivery Partners and Lead Partners believe that it is vital that all of our trainees have the academic and theoretical underpinning to become outstanding practitioners within the field of Education. This is why we make it compulsory for all trainees completing a Postgraduate Certificate of Education (PGCE) to study at Masters level. This aspect of the training takes place at our Hope Park campus.

The PGCE is a 60 credit award that can offer progression, upon successful application, onto our Masters in Education (180 credits in total) for those students who want to pursue further study.

The University’s School of Education places a strong emphasis on partnerships and we work closely with schools, dioceses and the community to design, deliver and quality assure training that results in the education of outstanding, passionate and talented 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 look forward to working with you.
