All our programmes are carefully designed and delivered to ensure that you will start your teaching career as a Newly Qualified Teacher (NQT) equipped with the best combination of skills and knowledge. People who train with us rate the quality of their central and subject specialist training really highly and as a consequence they are highly sought after by schools locally who are keen to employ them.
Crucially, you will spend the first few vital days of September in your placement school. Many Initial Teacher Training (ITT) programmes do not start until the end of September and therefore miss out this essential experience. All our Associate Teachers recognise the importance of being in school at the start of the year and really value being part of the team from the outset.
The overall programme and central training sessions are shaped by deep thinking and reflection on the moral purpose of teaching. Sessions carefully synthesise relevant theory and context, tailored reading and group discussions with practical advice on classroom practice.
The training team are engaging and charismatic, and generous with their time, reflections and individualised advice.
