Find out what makes us different - King Edward's Consortium 'Train to teach' open evenings

If you would like to find out more about our programmes and meet KEC staff and former trainees, we encourage you to attend one of our open evenings. We always enjoy meeting prospective applicants and we know how important it is to have the opportunity to ask questions face-to-face. There will be a formal presentation from the Director of ITT and former trainees at the start, followed by time for discussion and individual queries.

Owing to the uncertainty around the spread of COVID-19, we have taken the decision to postpone our open evenings for the time being. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused. 

Instead, you would be most welcome to book a telephone appointment with Ruth Penn (Registrar and Course Administrator). To arrange a convenient time please email:
