Red Kite Teacher Training

"Train where you live"

Red Kite’s 'Train Where You Live' concept is aimed at bringing teacher training to you, wherever you live in our region.

Partnerships with providers across the region mean that wherever you train, you’ll be part of the same Red Kite programme and receive the same high-class teacher training. Red Kite is the only provider working with the University of Leeds, and from September 2021 your learning experience with them will be blended to allow you to work remotely wherever you live.

With a wide range of courses, which now includes part-time options, there is something for everyone regardless of where you live.
