Develop your career in teaching.


Whether you’re already a qualified teacher, hoping to become one, or getting ready for further study; The University of Cumbria in Partnership with the Hackney Teaching School Alliance (HTSA) are able to offer a range of courses which can help you develop your career in teaching. Together we have developed high quality teaching and learning through effective School Direct (ITE) provision of Masters level accredited-PgCE.


The University of Cumbria as key strategic partners in the HTSA, pride ourselves on the quality of our educational research which means we are at the cutting edge of teacher education. HTSA are continually exploring ways of developing the continuum from training to teach through to school leadership. The University of Cumbria aims to support and enhance this pathway by offering accredited CPD and Masters Provision. Centred on practitioner research, the courses are firmly grounded in the context and experience of our students and are relevant to students from a wide range of backgrounds and experience.

It has been fascinating working with the HTSA and understanding how partners can work together to achieve the very best child focussed outcomes.
