Faculty of Education courses

The Faculty of Education has a national reputation for the delivery of high quality Initial Teacher Training (ITT) across the full range of age phases. Edge Hill University began life in Liverpool in 1885 as the first non-denominational teacher training college for women. From its origins as a specialist institution with 41 female trainee teachers we are now one of the largest providers of teacher training in the United Kingdom.

Working in close partnership with over 2000 schools, colleges and settings throughout the North West of England, we offer innovative initial teacher education and training underpinned by our vision of producing graduates and professionals who are capable, reflective and ethical practitioners distinguished by their intellectual engagement, professional acumen and commitment to the communities in which they work.
