Cass School of Education and Communities Vision Statement

We are passionate about high quality outcomes for all learners, through effective and responsive partnerships. We draw on our understanding of complex and diverse settings to support the development and delivery of innovative and flexible solutions.

The Cass School of Education and Communities works in very close partnership with schools and colleges to support initial teacher development. We are one of London's leading centres for teacher training, offering highly successful programmes for Primary, Secondary and Post-Compulsory levels.

We are the only Initial Teacher Education Provider in the country to meet the Equality and Diversity and Disability benchmark (source: The Guardian). Our partnership has a reputation for excellence in preparing teachers to educate young people in the multi-ethnic and multilingual culture of urban schools, and are one of the UK’s leading providers of initial teacher training for students from minority ethnic backgrounds. We are also one of the leading universities for recruiting men to train to teach at both primary and secondary levels.
