The Institute of Education at the University of Cumbria is one of the most successful in the UK, with 9 out of 10 of our students being employed or in further education just 15 months after graduating (HESA Graduate Outcomes Survey 2020).

We have been inspiring teachers and educators through our training and professional development programmes for over 100 years, beginning with our founding institutions, St Martin’s College in Lancaster and Charlotte Mason College in Ambleside. Most of our training programmes are heavily placement based, supporting our students with first-hand experience from over 2,000 of our partners such as primary schools or in a more specialised environment, such as prisons or museums.

So if your aim is to work in the Education industry, be it as a teacher or as a mentor, researcher, educational coordinator or administrator, you are most certainly in the right place.

Presenter

Paul Lawlor

Originally from Belfast. I moved to Cumbria in August 2015 to begin my BA (Hons) Primary Education 5-11 (w/QTS) at our Fusehill Street campus. One of the key reasons I chose the University of Cumbria for undertaking my teacher training degree was that I had worked in my local primary school back home as an assistant. Within this school, 3 teachers had gained their PGCE from the University. Additionally, a lot of friends had mentioned Cumbria as a fantastic destination not only for solely teaching vocational degrees but a range of other degrees also. After coming for my interview, I knew that this was the place for me due to the friendly supportive staff and the welcoming feel of the campus and city.
Since graduating, I have taken up the role of Outreach Officer here at the University. I am enthusiastic and passionate about supporting people on their journey into Higher Education whilst also giving something back to the University who offered me unrivalled support, guidance and opportunity both academically, personally, & professionally whilst studying. I gain a great sense of reward in helping people to make their next steps and reaching their full potential.
