Our past trainees agree that being trained by current practising teachers, recognised for excellence in their subject areas is the best introduction to the teaching profession. Our new teachers begin their careers with confidence in their knowledge and skills feeling empowered to lead learning in their own classroom. We have a strong partnership of local schools and their teachers willingly dedicate their time and expertise to support our developing teachers.
