Teacher Training Courses


We offer aspiring teachers the opportunity to gain the relevant qualifications required for a successful career within this rewarding sector.

Helping you to build upon your knowledge of the curriculum, our courses allow you to explore educational issues, new innovations and up-to-date teaching and learning theories with the aim of applying the main principles to your own subject area.

Our programmes emphasise the importance of work-based experience and you will have the opportunity to network with other established practitioners in order to gain a first hand perspective of the teaching profession.


    Natalie Burgess

    “TESOL seemed the perfect option.”

    Natalie Burgess is today enjoying teaching at a primary school in Shanghai – thanks to choosing Loughborough College for her teacher training.

    Oliver Barker

    “I really enjoyed the whole experience. There were five of us on the course and the College tutors were excellent – very helpful, friendly, clear and engaging. They taught me a lot about the skill of communicating."

    Oliver Barker is convinced his TESOL Teacher Training course at Loughborough College earlier this year was a ‘great investment’ – and has already had his first installment.

    Natalie Hansard

    “I wanted to continue my studies in a familiar and friendly environment. Being able to study in the evenings was also a huge advantage, as it meant that my work life was not interrupted by my studies.”

    Having already completed a Foundation and Top-Up degree, Tourism and Business Management teacher Natalie Hansard discusses how the PTLLS qualification gave her the edge over other aspiring teachers.

    Claire Bayley

    “You’ll never know until you try something. Take the risk!”

    Aspiring teacher, lecturer and researcher Claire Bayley started her promising career studying a PTLLS qualification (Award in Education and Training Level 3) and thanks the course for enabling her to gain an insight into the teaching profession.

    Paul Tebbatt

    “If I have a problem or query, I can quickly contact my tutor and we also have the Learning Resources Centre here and the course is linked with Warwick University.”

    Paul Tebbatt says teacher training at Loughborough College has both increased his confidence and his enthusiasm for teaching as a career.
