Initial Teacher Training (ITT)

We welcome high calibre and passionate graduates and career changers seeking to join the teaching profession through our Initial Teacher Training (ITT) programmes.

We offer a high quality and innovative school- based teacher training programme led and supported by Habs Institute for Professional Learning, the teacher training and professional learning arm of our Trust.

OUR TRAINING PROGRAMMES                                         

Our accredited school-based Initial Teacher Training (ITT) courses enable our trainees to work towards Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) with the additional option of pursuing a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE). We deliver an innovative training programme in partnership with Tes Institute, and combined with the support of our internal expertise, trainees develop comprehensive subject knowledge and professional skills while gaining practical teaching experience as an integral member of the school team. Our programmes have excellent retention rates with most of our trainee teachers going on to secure permanent teaching positions in our schools.                                                                                                                                                                                                               Our Training Programme                                         


You will have the opportunity to make a positive difference to the lives of young people from the very start of your programme, while being supported to perform to the best of your ability.

We have a unique and engaging professional development offer that provides opportunities for collaboration and access to networks for every teacher, no matter their career stage.
