The St Ninian PGCE Route

The St Ninian Catholic Teacher Training route is one that guarantees at least two placements in Catholic Primary schools in Cumbria. 


The course runs in partnership with the school, the Catholic Diocese of Lancaster and the University of Cumbria, ensuring a working partnership between Catholic schools in the county whilst allowing access to the Catholic Certificate of Religious Studies (CCRS). 


The St Ninian Federation’s core principles are: Prayer, Service, Knowledge and Aspiration. Our PGCE students work hard to ensure the best for all our children whilst gaining valuable experience in a variety of settings enabling themselves to develop professionally. We are always trying to find smarter ways to work with our practice being research-driven.


We only recruit people who are passionate about making a difference to children’s lives; people who challenge themselves to keep on improving and people whom hold high expectations whilst seeing the importance of developing the whole child.


If you want to train in a forward thinking environment then this may well be the course for you. For an initial discussion about the St Ninian PGCE route, contact the school on 01228 401800
