Initial Teacher Training


Teacher Training

One of ConnectED’s aims is to recruit the best possible teacher trainees and provide excellent training in order to supply outstanding teachers to meet the needs of schools and pupils in our region with our Initial Teacher Training Programme.

Our partner schools are very experienced in delivering high quality teacher training. We have a strong track record of excellent outcomes with all trainees, who have gone on to gain employment in the region. We are able to offer a rich and varied experience across the phases and provide opportunities for teacher trainees to gain further insights through our enrichment activities into such areas as EAL, SEN, and progression.

Placements on the School Direct Salaried and Schools Direct Tuition routes are available in the primary and secondary phases, both within the All-Through Trust Campuses and in a range of schools across Suffolk. We collaborate with these schools and are able to provide bespoke training sessions at the ITT (Initial Teacher Training) lead schools within the alliance for trainees taking the employment based route (School Direct Salaried) and the schools Direct Tuition Fee route.

For the academic year 2018-19, we are working with a number of providers offering different routes into teaching, so no matter what your age and experience, we are likely to have the training route for you!
