What is Inspiring Future Teachers (IFT)?

  • Intensive and varied training - you’ll learn through a variety of placements, discussions, research projects and live practice. 

Who is it for?

IFT is a postgraduate route, meaning you’ll need to have a degree to enrol on the programme. If you’re still studying when you make your application, you’ll need to provide a grade prediction from your course tutor. Find out more about specific entry requirements here.
