There are many reasons why we are the first choice for so many trainees and schools, and we have a reputation for being amongst the best school-led teacher training providers in the country.

Our trainees are highly sought after, and we deliver upon an expectation of employment every year. All trainees completed their training at a good or outstanding level last year and their feedback consistently rates the programme as being outstanding. We are the regions largest school-led, primary provider and are praised for our personalised approach to every trainee.

A strength of school-led training is that you are learning in a school environment and treated as a member of the school team from day one. You will be surrounded by experienced colleagues and guided through a gradual integration into teaching a class of children. The programme will be tailored to meet your needs and you will be supported by a Mentor and Support Tutor. Weekly professional studies sessions are led by a team of national experts and primary educationalists.
