Marjon Education graduates earn most in the South West

Released: 15.08.17

Teachers graduating from Plymouth Marjon University’s Education programmes are the top earners in the South West and Wales according to new data released by the Department for Education.

In the Longitudinal Education Outcomes (LEO) data, which looks at earnings of students up to five years after graduation, Marjon, the UK’s first teacher training institution, came out at the top of the tables for the region.

Marjon trains teachers in educational leadership and resilience, meaning their graduate teachers progress quickly into leadership positions. This progression is reflected in their salary growth compared to graduates from other universities.

On average, Marjon Education graduates earned £26,400 five years after graduating, compared to their closest university competitors of £24,600 for graduates from University of Exeter and the University of Gloucestershire. Lowest average salaries for the South West come from the University of Bath and Bath Spa University, where graduate teachers are earning £22,100 and £22,200 respectively, five years after graduation.

Marjon offers four undergraduate teaching training courses; these are BEd Primary Education, BEd Primary Education - Early Years, BEd Primary Education - Physical Education and BEd Physical Education - Secondary Education. Our postgraduate teaching courses include PGCE and School Direct.
