About Leicester

Leicester is a hub of cultural diversity, where teachers go to develop their skills, expecting to only stay for a few years but end up never leaving! Leicester’s primary and secondary schools have a high proportion of pupil premium children and a high number of children who are new to the country and beginning to learn the English language, providing the opportunity to put your teaching qualifications to good use and really make a difference to those children’s lives.

For higher education, the city is home to three universities: The University of Leicester, Loughborough University and De Montfort University, making it an unquestionably student (and lecturer)-friendly city.
