By nurturing the teachers of tomorrow, we hope to be able to provide for local staffing needs and set these teachers on the path to a long and happy teaching career within Suffolk.

Our aim is to provide the best possible Training Experience for our Student Teachers, ensuring that they have the skills and preparation required to make them the next generation of outstanding teachers.  It is our commitment to identify the specific needs of each trainee in order to provide a bespoke personalised support programme for their training.  Our schools are filled with excellent class practitioners, who are aware of the latest educational developments and best placed to fulfill the roles of mentors.  These mentors receive training and meet regularly, to support one another and ensure they are completely confident in their roles and responsibilities, and able to enable trainees to become reflective and responsive practitioners.

We have developed a long and successful partnership with SCITT, The Suffolk Initial Teaching Training programme, which aims to bring together the very best of school centered and academic training to produce competent and confident Newly Qualified Teachers who consider and reflect upon the purposes of education, as well as having high levels of knowledge, understanding and skills in the learning and teaching of children.
