Bath Spa University Institute For Education

The Institute is a place where students, teachers, governors, researchers, support staff and everyone interested in education can come together in a community of research and practice.

We are committed to providing a creative space to encourage innovative educational practice, through the promotion of debate, professionalism, expertise and partnership that creates globally aware, socially responsible and successful learners.

At Bath Spa University, we know education – we’ve been inspiring students, teachers and other education professionals since 1946.

We know a lot about education at Bath Spa – Newton Park first opened as Newton Park Teacher Training College in 1946, following the post-war shortage of teachers.

For over 70 years, we’ve been training the next generation of great teachers – and been rated as Ofsted ‘outstanding’ across our Primary and Secondary teacher training provision. As well as becoming teachers, graduates from the Institute for Education go on to explore a diverse range of career paths in the field of education, with our undergraduate and postgraduate education programmes offering a broad, global context that will prepare you for whichever career path you choose to follow.
