"At Derby University, there is the added benefit of supportive, friendly, encouraging and professional lecturers. They will guide your every step, but give you enough room to try your own things and learn your own way."
Kris Renshaw, PGCE Post-14
"The lecturers were fantastic at practicing what they preached, so almost all of the lessons utilised new and innovative techniques to teach us, that we could also take into our own classrooms."
