The University of Birmingham was one of only 2 higher education institutions judged to be outstanding in its primary inspection in 2012 to 2013. The inspection of May 2013 judged leadership and management to be outstanding. Outcomes for trainees are excellent and continue to improve. Partnership schools are fully committed to ensuring that trainees become at least good and often outstanding teachers. Employment rates exceed national averages by some margin and trainees display excellent professional qualities; they are clear that good teaching leads to pupils who are interested in their work, enjoy learning and behave well.
