We will provide you with access to web-connected computers and full technical support.  We ensure that trainees can access books and journals to support their study.

We recognise that each trainee teacher has individual needs. Our programme is designed to help meet your needs whether they are in subject knowledge, teaching skills or other aspects of professional practice.

The process of auditing needs starts at interview.  Shortly after you are offered a place on the programme, we will contact you to agree pre-course tasks and reading.  This is the start of a process of audit, learning and review which directs your development towards qualified teacher status

Staff in our alliance schools will be fully trained and committed to giving every support to trainees on the programme.  We welcome you and look forward to developing your teaching career with you.

We want you to enjoy your time with us and be fully prepared to take on your very first teaching post.
