Offering teacher training without required membership of a specific religious denomination, the progressive social values of Edge Hill in the late 19th century were a precursor to the modern day Widening Access schemes.With a well-earned reputation for innovation today, in 1892 Edge Hill was one of only two colleges pioneering the combination of teacher training and degree course study.
