Open Events

We’ve been training teachers at the University of Sussex for over 40 years, and are proud of the great reputation we’ve earned for the quality of both our Initial Teacher Education (ITE) provision and our graduates.*

Our collective mission is to recognise, support and develop a generation of reflective practitioners who are ready, willing and able to improve the life chances of every young person they teach.

We offer the three main routes into teaching for graduates:  The Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE), the School Direct (Training) Programme and the School Direct (Salaried) Programme.  You can choose to take a Primary or a Secondary route, with a wide range of subject specialisms available.

Depending on your subject and qualifications, you could be eligible to receive a tax free bursary or a salary while you train. 

For more information about Initial Teacher Education courses at Sussex, visit the ITE homepage.

Come and meet us, find out more about the courses we offer and ask questions at any of the following upcoming events ...
