Forward First is a forward-thinking network of Lancashire primary schools committed to developing, equipping and sustaining the next generation of inspirational teachers. We provide an innovative Post Graduate Certificate of Education with Qualified Teacher Status (PGCE with QTS), in partnership with the award winning Edge Hill University. Our vision is to provide all children with the very best educational foundation for a happy, fruitful and successful life. At Forward First, we aim to create rich and diverse ‘experiences’ for our trainees so that you can learn, use, refine and consolidate your pedagogic approach in highly supportive, highly effective settings. Training to teach in this small and supportive network of likeminded schools will mean you become part of a very special school family, the Forward First family, where trust and enjoyment underpins excellent educational opportunities for our children. If you have a passion for teaching, are organised and hard-working, please explore our programme further and contact us to find out more about studying with Forward First.
