TEACHER training places at the University of Portsmouth have more than doubled, bucking the national trend of places being in decline.

The university offers two routes to becoming a qualified secondary school teacher and has more than 250 places available for the 2015-16 academic year.

That’s more than double the 120 places on offer historically.

The university has been allocated 130 Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) teacher training places from the government’s National College for Teaching and Leadership and 133 places through School Direct, a scheme which allows schools to select and recruit their own trainees.

Andrew Porter, director of initial teacher training at the university, said: ‘It’s excellent for Portsmouth to have such a significant growth in numbers.

‘Our latest Ofsted inspection found our teacher training provision to be outstanding and this achievement has certainly helped boost the number of places we can offer.’
