Innovative research, inspiring teaching and professional development





The School of Education at Leicester is at the forefront of educational research and research-informed teaching. We offer world-class campus and distance learning programmes. We are a dynamic and diverse community committed to understanding and improving learning at every stage of life and in all contexts, from communities and families to schools, further and higher education institutions and public sector organisations.

We are recognised nationally and internationally for our world class research and our expert knowledge of education is enhanced by international perspectives contributed by our staff, students and research collaborations.

We have an excellent track record of developing fruitful local, national and international collaborations with practitioners, schools, policy-makers and academic colleagues. We work in collaboration with schools across the East Midlands.

Counting book with a Leicester focus

A new book produced by the School of Education uses familiar locations to help children find numbers and practice counting. The book is being distributed free to children aged 3 to 6 in city schools. Find out more in our short video below.

We are very pleased to announce that our newly developed Master of Education programme will be opening for the first cohort of students in October 2018. Find out more here.
