“Training with Manchester Nexus offers a unique experience, as it allows students to learn from a team of inspirational practitioners, who share the same philosophy on education and how children learn. The network of support from Professional Learning Mentors and Teacher Mentors, together with The Liverpool Hope University, equips students with the essential knowledge, skills and understanding, to become excellent teachers in this rewarding yet demanding profession.
Being part of this professional learning mentor program means a great deal to me. I have the opportunity to share my passion for teaching and learning with others as I support students on their journey to success. ”
Cheryl Haigh – Primary Mentor
We are proud of our Primary Initial Teacher Education which prepares our trainee teachers to rise to the challenge of ensuring every child has the best possible start in life, regardless of their circumstances and backgrounds.
The detailed training is designed to cover all aspects of what it means to be a teacher as well as inspire and motivate students to be the best that they can be.
Our careful blend of theory and practice means you’ll study how young people learn best and then try out relevant techniques and strategies in your classroom, gaining QTS and a PGCE as you do so. Your teaching practice will be supported by weekly sessions with your dedicated mentors who will offer you helpful feedback and you will also get support to develop your subject knowledge including maths, English and science.
