Initial Teacher Training

Newly accredited by the Department for Education from September 2024, Initial Teacher Training at ARU offers the gold star of teacher training.

We are launching with a brand new three year BEd (Hons) Primary Education with QTS, a 60 credit Master's level Lead Mentoring training programme and a range of exciting partnership opportunities.

We're looking to select the most dedicated and ambitious future teachers - that's why we hold selection events for all places on our BEd Primary Education with QTS, giving you the chance to get to know us and explore all that we have to offer too.

Designed and delivered by primary school teachers for primary school teachers, our ITT offer is a 10/10.
