Primary partnership


The Primary Partnership currently works with approximately 500 educational settings - across the early years, foundation stage, Key Stage 1 and 2. 

We value the expertise and opportunity offered by our diverse partners and celebrate the consistently high quality experience that all learners are offered. These long established relationships have built links for teaching placements and future employment.       

Our work includes both initial teacher education and continuing professional development, utilising accredited learning through the Universities Postgraduate Certificate, Postgraduate Diploma and Masters programmes.   

We benefit from the diversity of school-experience that we can offer trainee and experienced teachers – from small, rural schools in the Worcestershire and Herefordshire countryside to large, urban schools in Dudley, Birmingham, and Worcester city.
