Ofsted Report 2023


“Trainees are very positive about their experience of training to teach with this provider.

They benefit from a programme that is well thought through. Trainees learn the ‘fundamentals’, using up-to-date thinking about how pupils learn. Opportunities to ‘dive deeper’ and ‘go beyond’ help trainees to develop and apply their practice.

Primary trainees are well prepared to teach the full range of national curriculum subjects, including early reading and phonics. Expert leaders develop secondary trainees’ specialist subject and pedagogical knowledge. Trainees frequently reflect on how they can improve their practice.”

“Trainees learn how to be ambitious for all pupils. They are well prepared to teach pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities and those who speak English as an additional language. Specialist placements enhance trainees’ knowledge of how to support these pupils. Trainees develop a good understanding of their safeguarding responsibilities.

Centre- and school-based leaders work together very effectively.”

‘The course has challenged and pushed me to be the best version of myself.’


Leaders go the extra mile to prepare them for the rigours of teaching.


A strong culture of equality and inclusion permeates all parts of the programme


Their complementary approach helps trainees to manage their workload.
