The Faculty of Education
Knowledge is Precious
Manchester Metropolitan University’s Faculty of Education is one of the UK’s leading, internationally recognised, educational centres.
The Faculty has a long-established reputation for initial teacher training. Ofsted rated our PGCE Primary and Secondary and BA Primary (QTS) mmes as ‘Outstanding’ in their 2011 inspection.*
There is a strong partnership with 1,300 North West schools and 81% of our newly qualified teachers opt to live and work in the region.
We also provide professional training in Youth & Community Work, Early Years & Childhood Studies and Education Studies. In addition, the Faculty has an extensive continuing professional development portfolio for qualified teachers and education professionals. Specialisms include languages, inclusive education, education and business management leadership, counselling and mentoring and urban education.
The University’s Education and Social Research Institute (ESRI), based at the Didsbury campus, is ranked by the Times Higher as 8th out of 81 UK educational research units based on the government’s research assessment exercise and is a ‘world leading’ centre of excellence.
The educational aspirations and achievements of thousands of inner city learners are being raised through their involvement with the University’s world-leading Centre for Urban Education (CUE).
