Start your career in teaching at Leeds Trinity University, the premier provider of teacher training in Yorkshire and the Humber.

Teaching is an amazing profession and Leeds Trinity first opened as a teacher training college in 1966.

We provide outstanding courses with strong school partnerships.

We offer PGCEs for Primary and Secondary-level teaching through three different training models, all leading to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).

Our undergraduate Primary Education degrees lead to a BA (Hons) with QTS, offering a route into primary teaching if you do not have a degree-level qualification.

The lessons and placements enabled me to leave the University as a more mature individual and taught me so much about professionalism. The course taught me every subject you needed to be a Primary teacher, and this gave me so much confidence.
