There are two main routes into teaching.
A School Based route, in which all training is based within a school and is led by current classroom based practitioners.
A Higher Education Institution (HEI) route, in which training at university is led by academics and is interspersed with school based placements.
NTCTSA offers opportunities for School Direct Initial Teacher Training through Northampton School for Boys and the Northampton Teacher Training Partnership (NTTP) our on-site teacher training facility which has been in existence for over 15 years.
We offer the School Direct unsalaried training programme for all our courses which span the academic year. Despite being unsalaried, many subjects attract substantial bursaries from the Department for Education up to £30,000.
