Carnegie School of Education

Beneficial impact within and beyond the education sector

We are a School that is seeking to redefine the education and professional development of the children and young people’s workforce. We offer distinctive and creative programmes that are responsive to the changes taking place in society, focusing on the diverse skills required of modern professionals. We have been identified as one of the leading teacher training providers in England. We are one of only 25 universities to have had their initial teacher training allocations confirmed for the next three years, an acknowledgement by the Department for Education of their excellent provision. We offer a range of PGCEs which will allow you to train as either a Primary or Secondary School Teacher.

Over the next five years our University will be investing £200 million in campus developments, which covers a wide range of projects across our campuses. Work is now complete on our new Carnegie Teacher Education Building. The two storey teaching facility will be used solely by our teacher training courses and comprises a number of spaces which mimic real-life nursery and primary school settings. All the classrooms have been designed to model both primary and early-years learning environments, which will allow our teaching students to investigate the impact of the environment on learning, teaching and assessment. It will also enable the students to work with children from local schools who will be able to visit for Carnegie School of Education aspiration and project days in a cutting edge, bespoke environment.

The School is committed to having a deep, beneficial impact within and beyond the education sector. We have recently completed a project for Lloyds Bank Group to evaluate their school governor programme which contributes to the bank’s CST commitment – click through to read our Final Report and Evaluation Summary. We are also developing a Multi Academy Trust that will support and aid the development of a number of our regional schools, bringing the support and resources offered by the university even closer to the experience of teachers in school.


As well as working with more than 600 schools, we have partnerships with nurseries, social enterprises and primary sector business
