About the courses

What makes us different?

Our ITE teaching team at Teamworks are committed and experienced ITE educators and we run a bespoke programme with highly personalised support for each of our trainee teachers; you meet together as a group once a week for the majority of the year. We have a full time programme leader looking after you, outstanding practitioners teaching and mentoring you and school leaders who are fully committed to training their next generation of teachers.

Our programme places you in two schools from within the partnership across the year and you will work across two key stages from the following: foundation and key stage 1; key stage 1 and key stage 2; key stage 3 and 4 with post 16 enhancement. A key strength of our partnership is the diversity of schools; your two placement schools will be contrasting and the range of children and teachers you will work with will come from across the entire alliance ensuring you are trained to teach in all schools from the very start of your career.
