Initial Teacher Training

Initial Teacher Training

There are various types of teacher training courses available depending on your qualifications, experience and where you want to train. 
To become a qualified teacher, you need to successfully complete teacher training. The Maiden Erlegh Institute participates in the School Direct Programme of school-led training.
We work in partnership with the University of Reading to deliver training.
