We are not just a training provider. We are a company that is led by a CEO who is a teacher trained out of Oxford herself and has first hand knowledge, expertise and the experience of what it is like to train as a teacher and be a teacher. Therefore, Oxford Teachers takes pride in the fact that we are just not a training company or business, but
Oxford Teachers are a team of teacher training experts. To ensure the experience and expertise is not compromised,
the entire team is handpicked to ensure that we do not 
compromise our mission and vision.

All our trainers are fully qualified with a QTS/QTLS and years of teaching and training experience. We deem it of paramount importance to ensure that the quality of teacher training is ‘high end’. We are also passionate to ensure that ALL aspiring teachers and trainers can gain access and hence we have designed our course as such that we can facilitate our trainings globally.
Why? Equal opportunity for anyone who so wishes to train and why not?

We make it possible.

Oxford Teachers will always ensure their values remain intact throughout a trainees' experience with us.

Why? Because Oxford Teachers are more than just teacher trainers, Oxford Teachers believe in curating and cultivating the best teachers possible to give all learners the best experience possible.

Why Us?

Oxford Teachers’ training courses are designed to meet the needs of all trainees globally. We are UK based, but our trainings are accessible to all and anyone who has the entry level credentials to enrol from anywhere across the globe. We will not only give you the best possible training, but will also support you with employability as we want all our teacher and trainers to leave us and whilst they do so, walk into their dream role as either a qualified teacher or train the trainer.

We understand how busy life has become and therefore we want to ensure that we can facilitate training to empower and aspire our trainees to become the best teachers and trainer through a non-university route.

The non-university route itself is an empowering one as it open doors of opportunity to many people who in the past were unable to train due to ‘challenges of life’. Now anyone including, but not limited to; teaching assistants, learning support staff, tutors, unqualified teachers and industry experts can obtain a Pearsons, Qualifi or TQUK recognised
Diploma in Education and Training (DET Level 5), a qualification which can lead to a Qualified Teacher Learner Status (QTLS).

Although the course is panned over a year, we understand that many of our learners will join us with a wealth of experience and therefore we have multiple ‘fast track’ options. These will be subject to individual cases and terms and conditions.

Oxford Teachers understands that one size does not fit all and therefore we are adamant to ensure we step up and change  conformed methodologies. Hence, we will always provide a ‘bespoke’ solution for all as we are committed to provide
equal opportunities.

If you are thinking of becoming a teacher or trainer, please connect with us and let’s see how we can complement each other.
We will never hard sell, but instead, we will share possible bespoke solutions that fit your lifestyle.
