About the school

Back in 2002 Professor Sir Chris Woodhead and Professor Anthony O’Hear led the first teacher training course to be offered at the University of Buckingham. There were just 12 teachers. Now, with over 1000 teachers and school leaders studying with us, we have become the country’s leading provider of teacher training and professional development.

Our primary aim in all of our courses is to improve teaching and leadership in schools. The frameworks and assessments for each course weave into your day-to-day school lives, so that study and practice are relevant to your role and aspirations.

The range of our courses is clarified in our Continuum of Professional Learning below, but in short we provide a Masters or Doctoral level course applicable to the majority of positions in schools.

The website will give you information about each of our courses and the people who run them, but please get in touch if you have any questions.
