As a local partnering school with Leeds Trinity you will receive teaching from university academic staff at Leeds Trinity campus, and receive school based training alongside your mentor and practicing teachers.
The structure for the 19-20 course will feature two University based training days and three school based days in the first half term, followed by three school placements in two contrasting schools throughout the remaining terms.
The course can be financed by Student Loan, dependent on individual circumstances. Extra financial support is sometimes available. The tuition fee is £9,200 a year for postgraduate study with Leeds Trinity.
