Teacher Employability

The School of Teacher Education has excellent employability rates - over 95% for our Teacher Training courses for the last 3 years. This is above sector norms. In addition, 75% of our trainees choose to secure employment within our Partnership School area.

Don't just take our word for it, hear what one of our graduates has to say!

This success is achieved by high quality support for all of our trainee teachers to enable them to meet their personal career aspirations. Our dedicated support includes:

  • Annual Teaching Careers Fair to network with school employers
  • Mock interviews with school partners during your course
  • Support for completing applications to teaching posts
  • Beds Teaching Jobs Twitter account provides access to a range of teaching posts
  • End of course conference - 'Transition to NQT Year'
  • Access to our NQT coordinator throughout your NQT year for personalised support and guidance
  • Strong partnerships with local Appropriate Bodies to ensure smooth transition from course to first teaching post
