Stockton-on-Tees Teacher training Partnership is a well-established provider of initial teacher training rated outstanding by Ofsted in both primary and secondary sectors in 2013. We work with Stockton Teaching School Alliance which is led by an outstanding primary and secondary school.

You will become part of a long established partnership of schools that work closely together to deliver high quality personalised training and who have a proven track record of successfully training and developing our future teachers.

We will support you through a personalised training programme giving you the opportunity to thrive as an individual and achieve your qualification with real experience in a school. You will be assigned an experienced mentor to support you through the programme providing you with a wide range of opportunities to give you the experience and skills ready to teach.

The programme is embedded through experience in school and supported by academic theory. On completion of the course you will be awarded Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) as well as a PGCE at Masters Level 7.

Our programme is delivered over one academic year from September through to July.
