Our Success

98% of our teacher training graduates gain employment, the majority in one of the schools they trained in, making a smooth and successful transition from trainee to ECT.

Our graduates are confident and competent to meet the challenges of any classroom and maintain and develop their careers, going on to senior leadership positions and many returning as tutors for the next generation of Trainees. Our schools value our training, and our work has been validated by an Outstanding Ofsted report.

“Trainees are valued highly by their placement schools and NQTs are very well prepared to take on their roles. A large proportion of trainees are employed by their host school. Employment rates are extremely high, with all Trainees taking on NQT posts in most years.”
