About Us

We’re recognised as one of the leading institutions in the country for teacher training. Teaching or working within an educational setting is one of the most satisfying, interesting and valued professions.  Although it can be challenging and highly demanding, educators in or outside the classroom, are responsible for ensuring that children enjoy learning and gain an education that will equip them to live and work in contemporary society.

Committed to supporting the National College for Teaching and Leadership to increase the diversity of the routes into teaching, we aim to widen participation from those groups who are currently under represented in the teaching profession.

We offer courses at both undergraduate and postgraduate level, with a range of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) opportunities including the National Award for SEN Coordination and a Foundation Degree in Teaching and Learning Support.

The majority of our Teacher Training programmes are run at our Bognor Regis Campus.
