Our aim is to train graduates to become outstanding teachers driven by:


``Most striking is trainees' focus on the impact they are having on pupils' progress, rather than their own performance as a teacher.`` (Ofsted, 2017)


``Training is highly personalised and rooted in exactly what trainees need to know.`` (Ofsted, 2017)


``Mentors are highly trained, coached by lead mentors and their work quality-assured by course tutors.`` (Ofsted, 2017)

Welcome from the Director, Angela Barnes
