We have a wealth of opportunities for different types of schools as we presently have 14 good or outstanding schools (alliance members) who are willing to offer placements to students.  We strive to meet the needs of every student, providing personalised help and advice ensuring a wealth of opportunities are provided during the PGCE.  All our students for the past 3 years have been employed locally as a result of the support provided.

We ensure you are fully supported to get Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).  We offer have specialist bespoke days in SEMH, EAL and inclusion.  This is an ideal route for students to have a first class start to their teaching careers.
