Teacher Training - Working in Partnership

Our provision has been developed in collaboration with our partner schools. We support teachers at every stage of their careers and offer schools a range of activities to support the recruitment and development of staff.

Our team of experienced professionals support our partnerships with expert knowledge of local and national initiatives and cutting-edge research.

Our school partnerships are based on a set of shared values:

  • the shared moral purpose of unlocking the talent in every individual and enabling them to be successful;
  • collaboration that is generous and provides mutual support;
  • trust built on honesty and openness;
  • evidence-based improvement and innovation;
  • excellence in quality and impact on outcomes;
  • belief in the value of all schools and teachers.

Working with you for the future of teaching

We are committed to attracting talented and motivated individuals, who have the characteristics, aptitude and potential to become great teachers.

We are continuing to work with schools in designing and developing the best teacher education, testing out new ideas and opportunities and evolving even better approaches.

With 60 years’ experience in providing teacher training, our courses are demanding and highly rewarding, providing trainees with the opportunity to become outstanding educators.
