Welcome to our School

The Cass School of Education and Communities is a highly successful provider of education, early childhood, special needs, social work and teacher training programmes. 

We also play a key role in the provision of education services and professional development throughout east London and beyond. 

We promote a strong research culture, building on our reputation for innovation within education and communities.


Without doubt, the best thing about my course at UEL is the dedicated and knowledgeable lecturers that I’ve been taught by. I’m well supported in my learning. I feel valued in the classroom and inspired to learn and progress further in my field.
