About the Institute

At the forefront of teacher education for over six decades

We are one of the country’s major providers of education, training and research for the children’s workforce. We have a reputation for the highest quality provision, partnership working and delivery.

Excellent education

Founded in 1946 as a post-war emergency teacher training college, the University of Worcester has been built from a heritage of excellent education. The quality of our teaching, academic support, organisation and management, places us amongst the top UK education departments.

We are recognised for the impact of our work, which we undertake in close collaboration with partner schools throughout the region. By the end of the 1950s, Worcester had earned a reputation as one of the country’s best teacher training colleges - a reputation it has maintained and which is currently confirmed by the fact that it is the teacher training partner of choice for over 500 schools.

Teacher training, early years and professional development courses

We offer courses at both undergraduate and postgraduate level, covering Initial Teacher Education (Primary and Secondary), Education Studies, Early Childhood Studies and Continuing Professional Development. We also have an active research culture, with a number of students currently studying for Master of Philosophy and PhD degrees.
