Ofsted graded LJMU as ‘outstanding’ for its primary teacher training partnership, and ‘good’ for its secondary teacher training partnership.

The inspectors were impressed with the good quality of teachers in the current challenging socio-economic circumstances, and praised LJMU for its ongoing commitment to reducing trainee teachers’ workload, and for their ongoing support for mental health and wellbeing.

The inspections covered schools across the region, including Liverpool, Wirral, St Helens, Crosby, Widnes, Runcorn and Warrington.

Dr Cheryl Bolton, director of the school of education, said: “The report clearly recognises our commitment to working with schools, including those in challenging circumstances, our civic engagement and how we work in ‘true partnership’ with schools across all areas of our provision.”

LJMU has sponsored the Most Inspirational 16-18 Education Provider Award for a number of years, and is continuing this support in to 2019.

Christopher Prescott, account manager for LJMU’s student recruitment and admissions, said: “The Educate Awards are a great celebration of all the excellent work done by schools across the region each year.

“Liverpool John Moores University work very closely with a huge amount of schools and sixth forms and our sponsorship of the Most Inspirational 16-18 Education Provider award helps to showcase the staff and projects helping to guide young people into higher education or on to other career paths.
