Simply The Best: “Children at the Heart” of the University of Worcester’s Teacher Education says Ofsted
The University of Worcester, one of the UK’s biggest educators of teachers, has been praised as “exceptional” and rated Outstanding by Ofsted inspectors:
"The university is an exciting and inspiring place for trainee primary teachers to study."
"Trainees are capable and confident practitioners by the time they complete their courses."
"Subject leaders are experts in their fields. They have designed a programme of study that successfully deepens trainees’ knowledge of the national curriculum and, at the same time, develops trainees’ ability to teach. As a result, trainees build a secure understanding of each subject in the primary curriculum and know how to teach these subjects well."
"Leaders place a sharp focus on preparing trainees to teach pupils how to read. Indeed, trainees learn how to teach reading from early in the initial teacher education (ITE) curriculum."
"All trainees are exceptionally well prepared to teach reading."
"The ITE primary partnership is a learning community that places children at the heart of everyone’s endeavours. "
