Initial Teacher Training

IES Logo Collection (2)Our  ITT Courses are tailor made and especially relevant to students specialising in Religious Education. They help teachers make a sound start to a rewarding yet challenging career.

In delivering ITT, our main aim is to enhance student confidence and creativity by:

  1. Augmenting subject knowledge of (and insight into) the tradition
  2. Exploring stimulating ways to teach about Hinduism
  3. Recommending corresponding books and artefacts (with opportunity to Inspect and purchase)

IES staff are all spiritual practitioners and well experienced in Western thought and culture.

They are also familiar with the educational world, and the many challenges faced by teachers and trainees, both specialist and non-specialist.
