University of Leeds
Red Kite Teacher Training has an exclusive partnership with the University of Leeds, providing Red Kite trainees with a robust academic underpinning of theory and research.
Red Kite Teacher Training and the University of Leeds have been working in partnership since 2016. Together we have built a strong programme that trains evidence-informed, professional and inclusive teachers who can meet the challenges of the future and lead learning in our diverse educational landscape.
As a trainee, you’ll spend eight days during your training year at the world-class School of Education at the University of Leeds to gain your Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE).
The sessions, led by some of the country’s leading educational researchers, will give you all the knowledge and support you need to develop an evidence-based approach to teaching, helping you to reflect on what works and why.
Armed with this knowledge, you’ll complete four Primary assignments or three Secondary assignments, leading to 60 Masters Level Credits.
The strength of collaboration
Following on from Her Royal Highness The Princess of Wales’ visit earlier on this year, our students have been inspired to consider how they can make a difference. Watch our students, alumni, staff and partners talk about how collaboration can help to improve the future for children.
