The St Ninian PGCE Pathway

The St Ninian Catholic Teacher Training route is one that guarantees at least two placements in Catholic Primary schools in Cumbria. 


The course runs in partnership with the Catholic Diocese of Lancaster that ensures a working partnership between a selection of Catholic schools in the county whilst allowing access to the CCRS. 


The St Ninian core principles are: Prayer, Service, Knowledge and Aspiration, therefore our PGCE students work hard to ensure the best for all our children whilst gaining valuable experience in a variety of settings enabling themselves to develop professionally. We are always trying to find smarter ways to do our work with much of our practice being research driven.


We only recruit people who are passionate about making a difference to children’s lives; people who challenge themselves to keep on improving and people whom hold high expectations whilst seeing the importance of developing the whole child.


If you want to train in a forward thinking environment then this may well be the course for you.
