"I chose the IOE because it had an excellent reputation. I looked around the other London institutes and was told that the IOE was number one."
Bethany Doughty, PGCE Mathematics

Teacher training

The UCL Institute of Education (IOE) has been providing first-class teacher education, in partnership with schools and colleges in the London region for over 100 years. Centrally located in London, we are England's only university dedicated solely to education and are the first choice for many students wishing to become teachers. 


Outstanding reputation

The IOE's initial teacher education (ITE) partnership is recognised by Ofsted as 'outstanding' in every criterion across primary, secondary and further education (FE).  Ofsted found that the IOE produces consistently good, and often outstanding, newly qualified teachers who significantly enhance education in London schools and colleges and contribute to the rising achievement of learners.  The full Ofsted report.
