We  believe that every  student teacher or  Early Career Teacher has the capability to improve, further enhancing their skills to meet the needs of our children today. Every teacher can be better than the teacher they thought they could be.

We feel strongly that all student teachers and Early Career teachers  should have high quality mentoring and specific, needs targeted support in order to guide them through the early years of their career - thus ensuring success and satisfaction in equal measure.

All Early Career Teachers and Student teachers should have the opportunity to access a high level, specific professional development package that ensures they feel passionate about a career in education alongside successes each day.

Our Vision and Values  

Helping teachers of the future to find their feet, shape their own path and walk to achieve a career with successful longevity.

  • Care for the well being of each Early Career Teacher and Student Teacher and encourage an outcome oriented mindset inline with crucial and vital goals.

  • Help to develop a sense of resilience and resourcefulness, to enable the future of teaching to be initiative led, based on challenge solving, creative and critical thinking.

  • Provide a win/win model of abundance and collaboration, giving opportunity to learn within an interdependent structure of support thereby achieving success for  self and pupils alike.

  • Support Early Career Teachers and Students with their skills to become the teacher they need to be for the children who will develop to be the healthy grown adults of the future. Begin to support their own passions, interests within the teaching environment and develop their experiences outside of the classroom with experienced practitioners alongside them.

As a school we can offer an Early Career Teacher or Student  Teacher  a package that will enhance professional ability, developing skills across a range of curriculum and pedagogical areas. As a designated National Support School with a National Leader of Education, Specialist Leaders of Education and a range of additional highly experienced, outstanding practitioners we can provide you with excellent support no matter which areas of your career entry profile require support.. 

We offer bespoke training and tailor made targeted support for Early Career Teachers and Student Teachers who may need extra mentoring alongside school support systems, ensuring they achieve a successful, excellent and fully rewarding  experience.

A word from our Early Career Framework (NQT/ITT) lead.

I have been teaching for 20 years in primary education in outstanding schools and have extensive experience of leading English as well as a range of foundation subjects. As a senior leader I continually enhanced my skillset as evidenced through my role in moving a school from good to outstanding.  During my career I have had the privilege of mentoring many teachers and students alike successfully mentoring a number of NQTS within my own schools and also NQTs in different settings.

We look forward to working with you together.
