Who are we?
East of England Teacher Training collaborates with a number of School Direct Lead Schools, to offer high quality Initial Teacher Training. We passionately believe that the best place to train to be a teacher is in a school (it seems obvious!), so we work with like minded professionals to ensure that our trainees receive the BEST in school training, to ensure they are fully prepared to be an outstanding teacher. In addition to working with School Direct Lead Schools, we also offer SCITT (School Centred Initial Teacher Training) places.
In December 2018 we were judged by Ofsted to be an overall ‘Good provider’ with ‘Outstanding leadership and management‘. Click here to view our positive report.
What do we offer?
We are a group of experienced educational professionals who lead local school based Teacher Training to allow trainee teachers to gain QTS (Qualified Teacher Status) with the option of also gaining a PGCE. Our recent Ofsted notes that ‘Outstanding leadership has secured good and improving outcomes for trainees’ and that ‘the strategic board provides outstanding governance. Board members have excellent skills and are extremely capable of challenging leaders, supporting their vision and contributing to self-evaluation and strategic planning.’
This is a fantastic opportunity to be trained and supported by experienced teachers in outstanding and engaging school environments. During our recent Ofsted inspection they found that ‘The strong engagement of schools within the partnership is evident. Headteachers make a key contribution to the recruitment of trainees and the employment of NQTs across the partnership.’
We are passionate about what we do and about making a difference to the lives of the children within our schools. We can guarantee that our trainees will train in schools within their locality. The SCITT is ‘highly ambitious and is driven to ensure ‘high-quality local teachers that teach successfully within local schools’. (Ofsted 2018)
If you want to roll your sleeves up and get stuck into teaching then the School Direct or SCITT route is the right choice for you!
