PGCE Students

Trainee teachers are offered a range of experiences and opportunities to enhance and enrich their school placement. Our Primary and Secondary Professional Study Programmes are led and developed by Lambeth teachers as part of a commitment to a "for teachers, by teachers" approach and enable trainees to visit a wide range of school types and settings.
